On the Street…A New Shape, Milan

022118n218649

 

I’m so ready for a new pant shape!

 

I feel like now I’m just waiting on the designers and retailers to provide viable options.

 

The gentleman above isn’t wearing a flared pant so much (maybe a slight bootcut?) but there is a lot of crunch and puddling going on! (that may sound odd but it looks fresh)

On the Street…In Great Shape, Milan

22018LucaC8177IG

 

Yes I know Luca @luca_rubinacci looks fabulous (he almost always does!) but can we ,for a moment, focus on the shape of his suit jacket and the perfectly nipped-in waist!

 

Add to that the elegance of the one-button, peaked lapel and this photo is almost sartorial perfection. Any perceived flaws would be absolute nitpicking.

 

Well done my friend!

On the Street….Pattern Mixing, Milan

 

I noticed this season how successfully young ladies in Milan were mixing large scale florals with striped knits.

 

Usually the knit highlights at least two of the colors in the floral pattern.

On the Best Street, Milan

I’m telling you, just spend a few hours on via Montenapoleone and you’ll see the most chic people!

 

They might not all be Italian ( this gentleman is from Munich) but the street seems to draw the best from around the world!

 

Bravo Milano!

On the Street…Giampaolo, Milan

Incredible!

 

The volume, the lines ,the texture and subtly of color and pattern…..and that’s just his hair! Ha!!

 

Giampaolo really rocks this look and he knows it (he’s very vain!) but really, expand the image so you can see his mastery of mixing plaid jacket, check shirt and medallion pattern tie.

 

This is fashion as creatively done as anything I see on the runways!! Bravo!
