What do you get when you mix a modern-day anarchist with a preppy student? Yes, the Diesel Black Gold Fall Winter 2015-16 menswear collection. Designer Andreas Melbostad reinvented the brand’s signature denim – washed, coated, distressed, patched, slim fitted and tie-dyed – and combined it with preppy blazers, sweaters and coats, all covered with pins, chains, patches and zippers to give the collection a more rebellious feel, making a loud statement. The color pallette was rather sober with black, blue, charcoal and red/burgundy playing the leading role. Melbostad played it save, but in a good way, holding on to Diesel Black Gold’s success story.

Andrea Pompilio’s debut at Canali was talk of the town during Milan Fashion Week last season. I’m a big fan of his creations since I discovered him and was very curious what his plans were for Canali’s Fall Winter 2015-16 collection. Pompilio delivered an eclectic wardrobe inspired by Milanese modernism: the Fifties. A time when the city was a source of ideas and innovation. He took the pureness, the graphic appeal, the architectural textures and even the nonchalance of the era to create pieces that are easy to wear. Colors are clean and sober, with white, grey and black setting the tone, brightened up with some yellow. A young and fresh Canali collection, the rebirth of Canali is a fact. Auguri, Andrea!

Calvin Klein Collection is a constant highlight during Milan Fashion Week and I couldn’t be any happier I was once again invited to see Italo Zucchelli’s latest creations. 50 shades of grey, that’s how I describe the Fall Winter 2015 men’s collection. Granite, anthracite, Gotham, basalt, charcoal, heather… Italo was definitely in a grey mood. Athletic, sporty silhouettes take cues from trendier streetwear looks. His collections have often infused masculine Forties silhouette with a futuristic bent. Add some plastic and some leopard and you get a vibrant collection. There was also something retro about a passage of cropped flight jackets and high-waist trousers that suggested an air squadron of dark androids. A straight to the point collection, no nonsense, which I like!

‘A dandy in New York City,’ is how John Varvatos describes his Fall Winter 2015 men’s collection, inspired by Bob Dylan in the Sixties and created for the guy who wants to dress up, mixing Rock ‘n Roll chic garments with dandy elements. The silhouettes are sleek and strong, yet comfortable with unexpected accents: trousers are cut shorter – still a trend! – to show boot details and paired with single-breasted jackets to complete the solid look. Jacquard fabrics express the dandy attitude, giving the collection a British touch. John Varvatos goes back to his black, but added refined colors as aubergine, grey and camel to what I call his best collection so far.

When I look back at my Milan Fashion Week carreer, I can say that I barely missed an Etro show in the past 5 years. Kean Etro always goes back to the roots, but gives his collections a modern twist that makes Etro an up-to-date and trendy brand. For the next Fall Winter season he created a world of illusions. Pattern rises and falls, loosing its borders and confines while prints appear and disappear like an illusionist trick – think trompe-l’oeil and ombré effects. Plaids and Etro’s signature paisleys, checks and tweeds, meeting up in an alchemy only Kean knows how to do, with the low scrotch pants as the ultimate eyecatcher. This collection is all about the color brown, spiced up with hints of camel, burgundy and mustard, toned down for Winter.
