Three (Still) Fresh Menswear Designers We Loved at Milan Fashion Week

They say menswear is dead or is it? With Milan Mens Fashion Week just over, we must say that men’s fashion is alive and kicking in Milano with the usual suspects such as Fendi, Giorgio Armani, Prada, Versace, Moschino and a blossoming selection of still fresh brands and designers.

From the look of it, Men’s Fashion Week is losing it’s initial hype since it was introduced into the calendar in 2012. Major brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Burberry, Calvin Klein and others have dismissed the men’s fashion week from their agenda and decided to either mix men’s and womenswear in their presentations or abandon the official fashion week calendar altogether. And although London Fashion Week might have lost its big names, more traditional Milan is still embracing menswear with old and new names on the schedule.

We picked three young menswear labels that showed at Milan this season – two Italian and one British. They all have strong statements, wide street-lux appeal and a down to earth approach to fashion.
