Milan Men's Fashion Week SS16: Salvatore Ferragamo

That 70s show

Milan Men's Fashion Week SS16: Salvatore Ferragamo
For spring/summer 2016, Massimiliano Giornetti capitalised on two prevalent trends: Sportswear and the louche vibe of the 70s

Creative director Massimiliano Giornetti was in a decidedly '70s mood... sending out his models with amber ombré shades and shirts fastened with skinny ties left hanging over retro pullovers.

Hero pieces came thick and fast: A short-sleeve top panelled with suede and calfskin; a buttoned-up blouson crafted from strips of snakeskin; and our personal favourite, a green notch-lapel suit cut svelte for a contemporary silhouette.

However, it was the casual pairing of... baseball caps and bombers that really characterised the show; further accentuating the continued sportification of menswear and adding a relaxed edge to the ensembles.

The colour palette was dominated by... sandy hues of mustard and stone punctuated with shots of burgundy and teal, while black emerged in the final looks in the form of blazers and overcoats striped with slate.

But we would be remiss not to mention the... rug-lined runway, the green velvet chaise lounge, the fountain-shaped neon light on the wall, and a life-sized gorilla welcoming models at the end of the catwalk. Ballsy.
