Milan menswear SS09′ wrap-up
For those who actually cares about menswear… let’s start with some trendspotting.
McQueen menswear is my favourite this season. Love the Margiela-sque influence in it and how body conscious the pieces are. He also showcased his resort collection (which reportedly makes up 60% of the brand’s profits) at the show because “they both go into the shop together”.
And what’s not to highlight about Raf Simon for Jil Sander’s amazingly well-structured suits? That jacket is to-die-for. But not many people are a fan of his (favourite) colourblocking creations.

Now, on to male models.
Etro Vivienne Westwood
‘Grandpa is that you?’, and that macho man at Westwood is a complete opposite from all those pale emo boys we used to see on the runways. He is an actor and bodyguard by the way.
Paris menswear next!
DIOR HOMME. RAF SIMONS. JOHN GALLIANO.
