Milan's Menswear: Would You Let Your Boyfriend Wear This?

25 June 2012 by

Milan's menswear shows are in full swing, with shows from big guns like Prada, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana already wrapped. Running from 23rd-26th June, Milan's runways are known for their glitz and old school glamour but aside from Talented Mr Ripley style staples, there were also some decidedly more barmy looks on show. Grazia guides you through the right-on to ridiculous at Men's MFW Spring 2013 so far!

Moncler's Sailor Boys: Ahoy!

1. Ankles, Sou'westers and Fishnet Hotpants

Perhaps you wish your boyf would dress like Pocahontas? Or a heavyweight champ cum Roman gladiator? Or maybe you just have a penchant for see-thru jumpers with visible pecs? Or maybe not. Regardless Milan's catwalks were bursting at the seams with giggle-worthy get ups. On another note, we have a major soft spot for Dolce and Gabbana's Sicilian non-models who were drawn from across the Med's largest island. But while we love the charming hand-me-down feel of their collection we're still not 100% about the visible ankles.

2. #Metallic Madness

Bright, shiny and definitely reflective, one of Milan's biggest trends so far has been the metallic look. Seen in shirts, jackets, coats and trews, no doubt the high street will go gaga for this fancy trend. But could you sit straight faced if you other half decided to rock a metallic number? Our advice to high shine lovers is to keep the bling to a minimum - a single metallic garment is all one look could ever require.

3. Double it Up

This is a trend we have been trying to foist on to the men in our lives for several seasons now - and this edition of men's MFW continues to convince us of the allure of the double breasted suit. With a hint of retro chic, the double breasted is ultra-masculine, slimming and totally on trend. We heart.

4. Bomber Attack

Ever since we laid eyes on Ryan Gosling in last year's Drive, we have been waiting for his look to catch on. Thankfully the Gosling driving jacket - aka sheeny bomber - is set to be massive next Spring. Any men out there looking to fulfil our sartorial fantasies, we suggest you make a timely investment.
