milan - men's fall/winter 2008 - day three


the art of skiing has been a big inspiration for the men's show this past week and dell'acqua had one of the best interpretations of the trend. sticking with a colour palette of blacks, greys and the occasional shots of colours combined with a lean silhouette, dell'acqua managed to infuse ski elements and made it luxurious. after seeing so much suits the past week it was good to finally see some sweaters. and what was better was that he showed sweaters that oozed comfort, warmth and relaxation. the kind that you wear when you're at home and you just want to be comfortable. fortunately he also made them look damn good.


the gucci man has always been a man of the world and he's never been afraid to show it. since frida giannini started designing the menswear collection as well, she revived the musky male sexuallity that tom ford injected into the house. for fall/winter she went to russia for inspiration. and that meant folkloric touches, military inspired looks, and a heartiness that recalled back to the fun loving gucci man of the nineties. although the general mood of the men's shows were a bit restrained and polished, giannini did manage to present looks that when taken apart had all the right ingredients that were on point with the seasons trends. the coats she presented were some of the strongest of the week. hopefully next season she'll realize that when menswear is entering a new age of sartorial elegance, a little editing can go a long way.
