AW14 Milan Fashion Week: Final Day Recap

January 15, 2014 BY OBI A.


That's a wrap in Milan! Before we head to Paris for the week, check out our recap of the final day of MFW.

Dean and Dan Caten did their spin on jailhouse rock for their DSquared2 AW14 collection that was inspired by the prison uniforms of today and the denim ensembles of yesteryear. The duo didn't stray far from their signature looks and designs, as they were sprinkled throughout the collection between bright orange quilted shirts and jackets, denim shirts, jackets and coats, and formal shirts and sweatshirts emblazoned with the words "Caten's Penitentiary".


Like his Emporio Armani collection, Giorgio promotes the slim silhouette for his namesake AW14 collection. The collection fit close to the models' bodies showing a bit of physique. Armani explained that his deconstructed 70s, broad shouldered designs made way for this collection almost a full 40 years later.


Former Jil Sander designer, Paul Surridge took Z Zenga to the 60s with four-button jackets and turtleneck looks. The show had a futuristic vibe thanks to the techno playlist, which makes us wonder if Surridge was thinking of 2060 while referencing 1960.


Finally, Roberto Cavalli closed the week with a bold AW14 collection that was full of statement pieces that command attention. The latter portion of the show had a number of leopard print and gold pieces, most notably a double-breasted tuxedo jacket.


There is youthful exuberance coming out of London and now Milan showing that menswear may become a young man's game. We're excited about it and can't wait to see what else is in store for years to come, but before we think about next season or even next year, off to Paris! Keep it locked with us for Paris Fashion Week recaps.
