More from Milan Mens fashion week

John Varvatos
This collection was mostly in grey and black but it was well done. The cuts and finishings were not tacky and there was attention to detail (notice first pic). I also loved the floral blazer(3rd pictured) outstanding collection overall.

Gianfranco Ferre
This was like men's couture :o) lol i totally loved the oversize chunky knits i'd only seen these sort of images on the Sartorialist on women...good to see that men can rock it too :o)

Ermengildo Zegna

Love the boots and the leather accesories, burgundy and tan was the main colors for the collection that also featured wide trousers as opposed to slim ones presented by some designers.

Giorgio Armani

This was one velvety suede collection most of the pieces were chunky due to the fabric. I kind of see velvet blazers making their way back this year into mainstream menswear.

I lovvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeedddddddd this collection from the cape to the beanies. It was so cool notice the clutch in the last picture!..omg!!!! cool , i certainly don't want to carry my manbag everywhere but i also need to haul all my pda's and keys :o)
Leather pants popped up more than once during this fashion week i hope its not a sign of things to come cos i certainly will not be caught around in stuff that best be used for furniture or luggage :o) Brilliant job from Frida and her team i especially loved the cut of the collars.
Two words!!!- Elegant, Manchic....thats how i would describe this collection.
Seems like Prada loyalists would have to do with loose fitting double breasted jackets and leather pants. Masculine collection, no doubt but i am not going to wear stuff that would look a size or two bigger like it has been passed down :o)
The first picture is actually the most dandified outfit i saw on the runway love the color and the hat too this would surely get heads turning come fall 09. I also loved the leggings paired with combat boots.
A very typical collection from Vivienne had all the twists and drama like you would expect but i managed to select some of the more wearable outfits. If you want to get thrilled hit the link :o)
