Although London is not one of my favourite cities in the world, I love London Fashion Week: small, cosy, with an avant-garde touch. Such a pitty I couldn’t be there! Here are the 5 looks I like the most:

120 years of iconic British design could not be more promising (ánd rewarding) than DAKS’ show for next Fall and Winter. Trench coats, army jackets, checked blazers, velvet evening wear, hunting garments, riding gear, boots, Sherlock capes and caps and all those wonderful pieces that make the English lord’s wardrobe a timeless treasure chest were re-edited for modern day living where life in airports, cold office spaces, miserably wet city streets and drafty sites are just as much to be suffered as one enjoys elegant evenings spent alongside polished mahogany bars, catching up in buttoned leather clubchairs or in suede lined limousines. DAKS brought it all to life and turned every silhouette into a gem of drop dead gorgeous masculine luxury redefined. Fur, cashmere, camel, tweed and leathers all knit, stitched, sewn, tied or patched together in a wonderfully modern blend of English high quality perfection. Tradition meets innovation. Quality salutes its demanding buyer. Sporting those Royal Warrants sets a standard and DAKS delivered what was to be expected yet again: excellence!

And the 5 biggest Spring Summer 2014 trends are:

Black & white

Black is the new black. White is the new white. After several color explosions last couple of Summer seasons, it’s time to tone down a little. Go head-to-toe for a maximum effect!

Dolce & Gabbana Spring Summer 2014

Gianfranco Ferré Spring Summer 2014

Feminine applications and embroideries on literally everything, from dresses and tops to accessories.

Giambattista Valli Spring Summer 2014

Marni Spring Summer 2014

Palazzo pants

Bye, bye, skinny jeans! Hello, palazzo pants! Flowing fabrics and loose silhouettes are fresh and refreshing.

Midriff chic

Ladies, you better start working on your abs! Next Summer season is all about showing of your midriff. Bra lets, cropped tops and all are mixed to palazzo pants, skirts or even an attempt at tailoring.

Chanel Spring Summer 2014

Salvatore Ferragamo Spring Summer 2014

Perforation

With lace and see-through fabrics being a constant last seasons and a commercial success across the globe, fashion takes it to another level. Perforated patterns are more precious and detailed.

Let’s start my Milan Fashion Week reviews with DAKS London. The old-world brand – usually linked to the British Monarchy – really surprised me the most in Milan. Words can’t describe how much I love their Spring Summer 2014 collection. Perfection! The English gentleman on holiday in the early 30’s, strolling along the shore in Deauville or flirting the days away in Capri. Sophisticated Summer looks in neutral colors like white, black and grey, with a touch of dusty green. Although I love the entire collection, the pants carried away most of my enthusiasm. Either simple and slim or more ample, pleated and high waisted, a must-have in every man’s closet next Summer season. Guess who would love to be the new DAKS London gentleman?
