It's a grey season at Milan
Greys and blacks dominated the catwalks on Tuesday as Giorgio Armani, DSquared2 and Neil Barrett wound up the fourth and last day of Milan men's fashion shows for autumn-winter 2011-2012. Armani presented grey in all its incarnations - stone coal, blue-grey, greyish-green, with jackets having strong shoulders and clean silhouettes.
Overcoats and fur-lined leather coats, coloured shirts in violet, pink and orange, and buckskin shoes rounded up the collection. As expected, the twin stylists of DSquared2 put on a spectacular show, complete with a 'Little House on the Prairie' - styled covered wagon. The Wild West atmosphere was reflected in the mainly black clothes, with black Wyatt arp hats and leather braces.
The duo's jackets were long and tied at the waist with a belt, or short and hyper-cinched. Jeans were worn low on the waist, and there were little waistcoats with khaki on the front and tartan in the back. In materials, flannel, wool and leather dominated. The same palette of black, grey and blue were seen at the Neil Barrett show, which featured luxurious materials like cashmere, and also less-classic materials like neoprene.
