The British-Sardinian nobleman in question was obviously fond of a dapper touch of tailoring. Indulging in thick, knitted robe de chambre and parading sumptuous brocade tuxedo jackets.

The most stylish men's trade fair Pitti Uomo 94 took place from 12 to 15 June 2018. And although NY Times stated that "The Dandy Is Dead", I can not agree with that. In Florence everyone was "dandier" than ever. And while the so called peacocks have prepared different outfits for every day, the same happened also to buyers, managers and other visitors of the business fair.
What made the Wooyoungmi show unlike any of the others was the cool and interesting tie between retro elements combined with country inspired feels with a modern twist. The striking colour palette that had soothing hues drawn from nature such as buttercup yellow, dusky blue, earth tones, maroon and pale grey. The prints added further interest and authenticity to the looks that included stripes, plaid, checks and textures. Modern twists were reflected in the accessorizing, the bags, boots and hair.

The Alexander McQueen show for Spring/Summer 2019 was one of the best in terms of originality and style while still staying true to the brand’s design aesthetic, not forgetting the subtle inclusion of the unexpected, which is always a treat for the eyes. A very strikingly cool combination of razor sharp classic silhouettes vs a totally edgy biker-esque attitude made for interesting bedfellows to start with. The collection had a grunge glam kind of essence that moved between each ensemble with an energy that just had everyone’s attention.

Some go just for the looks while some want the durability.
The mere mention of Rick Owens and the first thing that comes to mind is breaking the rules. Hence the show that had everything from drama, deconstructed silhouettes, exaggerated elements, architectural shapes, all moved in unison with the aesthetics of the man himself. The styling and attitude of the models, the raw grunge feels and minimalist approach made this collection one of those that moved into a league of its own.
Glenn Martens of the Parisian brand Y Project showed range and diversity through a collection that was inspired, playful and uplifting. From tailored pieces to unique interpretations of blazer jackets and trench coats, the use of a striking palette having strong neutrals, bright hues of energizing yellow, warm orange and royal purple and blue. Speaking of blue, the eye-catching inclusion of denim in powder blue and indigo adds further energy and life to a collection that is young and carefree.
From the abstract to the outlandish, the vibrant colours to the creative techniques of layering. Hiromichi Ochiai for Facetasm showed a collection that was every bit as eccentric as it was artistically reflective of current day global village.
