Jan 10, 2012

As in every season, the men's fashion week in Milan will take place a few days following Pitti Uomo in Florence. It is from January 14 to 17 that Italian and international designers will fill the catwalks, but will also be showings. Of the designers, 39 have chosen to express themselves on the catwalk and 24 in showings.

Obviously, all the Italians greats will be there. Corneliani opends the festivities on the 14th, followed by Zegna, Costume National, Dolce & Gabbana, etc. Roberto Cavalli will close the first day. 

Sunday the 15th will begin with Bottega Veneta, then continue with Emporio Armani, Ermanno Scervino, Salvatore Ferragamo. Trussardi, Prada, Moncler Gamme Bleu which are scheduled for the afternoon. On Monday the 16th, the program will begin with Dirk Bikkembergs and end with Versace, by way of Iceberg, John Richmond, Gucci, Etro, Z Zegna, Canali, Gazzarini, Moschino, Versace. Finally, the last day, Tuesday the 17th, will start with DSquared2 followed by Giorgio Armani, Diesel Black Gold, Ports 1961, Enrico Coveri et Roccobarocco. Some foreign labels will be found among these as well, such as Jil Sander, Burberry Prorsum, John Varvatos and Neil Barrett on Saturday; Pringle of Scotland, Vivienne Westwood, Calvin Klein Collection on Sunday; and Nicole Fahri on Monday. 

Certain shows will be more eagerly awaited than others. Z Zegna is one such example. This will be the first collection for the Zegna group’s most trendy brand, spearheaded by creative director Paul Surridge, who has worked alongside Raf Simons at Jil Sander and Alessandro Sartori at the great Italian house, who has left LVMH for Berluti. Another interesting moment: the choice of Diesel for a men’s runway show in Milan with its line, Diesel Black Gold, which usually sufficed itself with a showing. Its women’s line will show on the New York runway.

Finally, from the 14th to the 16th of January, the White Milano creative fair will also take place. There, one will certainly find a lot of offerings for men, but this time it will also be open to women’s pre-collections as well as design.
