SALVATORE FERRAGAMO: SOPHISTICATED EXPLORER
Designer: The Ferragamo design team (formerly Massimiliano Giornetti)
Synopsis: For a house currently without a creative director to steer the ship, it was an impressive collection of covetable creations; namely, belted field jackets (with matching trousers), abstract motif blousons, and patch-pocket canvas backpacks that left us wanting more.
VIVIENNE WESTWOOD: FREEASSANGENOW.ORG
Designer: Vivienne Westwood
Synopsis: A wild and free androgynous offering — modeled by both men and women — marked by drapery and a melting pot of mixed fabrications, colours, strapping and accessories.
MISSONI: BIRD IN FLIGHT
Designer: Angela Missoni
Synopsis: Inspired by Guatemala and the sacred Quetzal bird, as a symbol of the country's rich Mayan heritage, the spring/summer 2017 menswear collection was a vivid showcase of the signature Missoni weave, but reinterpreted in acid colours and swirls. Think short-sleeve camp-collar shirts styled over striped tops, to-die-for field jackets, and woven pouches attached to leather belts — all topped off with woven straw hats native to South America.
Designer: Miuccia Prada
Synopsis: Atop a purpose-built metal lattice runway, Mrs Prada unveiled a kaleidoscopic mélange of colours, prints and technical fabrications in a highly stylised offering of luxe camping attire and accessories. Outerwear, shirting and suiting were all routinely crushed under backpack straps and belts for a futuristic, yet dystopian, take on the travelling man.
MONCLER GAMME BLEU: SCOUT'S HONOUR
Designer: Thom Browne
Synopsis: With a penchant for uniforms — and uniformity — Browne proffered a full collection of scout-inspired uniforms in plain khaki, green plaid, and dark navy; all covered with flap patch-pockets and accessorised with the iconic scout neckerchief.
DAMIR DOMA: DECONSTRUCTED LIGHTNESS
Designer: Damir Doma
Synopsis: Played out in full monochromatic hues of white, olive, ochre and black, the collection eschewed rigid silhouettes for patch-worked cotton shifts, loose kimono-style shirts, and field jackets belted high at the ribs.
