Live From… Milan Menswear, Day 2

Live From… Milan Menswear, Day 2 Prada

Miuccia Prada likes to challenge fashion, often taking the ugly and turning it into something unexpectedly directional and fashion forward. For her winter menswear collection the references come from the 60s – and everything kitsch and bad taste about the period. In this case it’s turtleneck twinsets, boxy suits and diamond-patched suede commuter coats.  The look: Bad-taste 60s retroisms made minimal and modern Silhouette: Square-cut flat planes, oversized top halvesKey items: Tailored suit jackets are oversized and boxy with exaggerated wide-cut sleeves, either high-breaking three-button SBs or four-button SBs buttoned to the neck, while pants are tapered and cut above the ankle or cropped just below the knee; square-cut 60s-style polo shirts and twinsets comprise a narrow turtle neck and V-neck combo in glitter knits; elsewhere there are zip-up track tops and viscose jogging bottoms, carrot-leg suede pants and suede commuter coats with contrast diamond panels
