Recap of the Moment: Milan Fashion Week Part 1

Part and parcel of greeting the New Year are the Fall-Winter menswear shows in Milan. Venerated periodicals and websites are currently in flux of runway photos and critic reviews. Lucky for you, I am neither a critic nor an editor so I'll spare you the gargantuan essays. Here are my notes of Milan's collections in ten words or less:

1. Marni - earth tones, leather sleeves, colorblocked monk strap shoes, simple silhouettes.

2. Dolce & Gabbana - tailoring, grays, drop crotch, burgundy, fur anoraks, specs, pecs.

3. Burberry - checks, skinny pants, a flurry of produce-colored (carrot, olive, blueberry, peach, broccoli) coats, plastic raincoats.

4. Bottega Veneta - gray suiting, colorific trousers and coats, leather pants (if bad boys wore color, this would be it).

5. Jil Sander - colorblocking, fuchsia, cream, textured shirts, layering (a muted continuation of Spring 2011).
