Milan Fashion Week - Bottega Veneta
Since the launch of LCM in January 2013, mens fashion week is slowly overtaking my love of women's. London Collections Men provided a lot of fresh, young talent with a different take on traditional mens clothes.However, at Milan Fashion Week I am completely in awe of the Bottega Veneta S/S14 Collection. As soon as I saw it I conjured up a scene in a 1950s jazz club surrounded with Marlon Brando-esque men; The collection made so many references to the 1950s, Americana era from the boxy, wide-sleeved shirts to the roll necks and scribble stitched garments.
Suits oozed with smart sophistication as they were laced with a silk trim and exquisite detailing. Colours were muted with a lot of grey and flashes of purples and reds creating an elegant style that can be worn by every modern man.
