DIESEL BLACK GOLD: URBAN WARRIOR
Designer: Andreas Melbostad
Synopsis: A rigorous pared-back collection rooted in denim and a play on proportions. Case in point: Relaxed denim and leather jackets cut with a kimono-style closure paired with skinny jeans, and wide-legged trousers contrasted with tightly-ribbed pullovers.
EMPORIO ARMANI: FINGER ON THE PULSE
Designer: Giorgio Armani
Synopsis: A tribute to the handsome appeal of blue — topped off with trilbies — characterised by classic masculine suiting updated with leather jackets and active wear emblazoned with blown-up fingerprint motifs and stripes.
GUCCI: SAVING THE BEST FOR LAST
Designer: Alessandro Michele
Synopsis: Given the direction to combine the men's and women's collections into one show next year, this was the final Gucci menswear runway. But Alessandro saved the best for last, sending out a confident collection in his signature androgynous aesthetic, artfully combining luscious silks, rich velvets, stunning jacquards, and fantastic fur into one ostentatious concoction.
ETRO: INFINITE BLUE
Designer: Kean Etro
Synopsis: Recruiting non-models by way of poets, photographers, artists and hippy lawyers, but to name a few, Etro took inspiration from where the clouds meet the sea, for an inky blue offering stitched together by the prolific use of ikat prints on relaxed trousers, mandarin-collared shirts, and billowing kimono-style jackets.
FENDI: FUN IN THE SUN
Designer: Silvia Venturini Fendi
Synopsis: Gone was last season's reclusive homebody and, in its place, a bright and joyous collection that celebrated fun in the sun. Employing an energetic colour palette of orange, green, yellow and khaki, models stepped out onto the runway (bordered by a makeshift pool) in playful and fluid separates, accompanied with totes and bags embellished with a hand-drawn version of the brand's iconic Pequin stripes.
