The ordinary side of the haute couture
FASHION WEEK DO-IT-YOURSELF
Milan Fashion Week dedicated to menswear S/S 2018 just ended. Not only fashion shows but even many exhibitions and trendy events. Lots of models walked the catwalk and lots of new trend have been presented.
Haute couture came back in Milan. And is spite of warm temperatures and summer holidays, the loyal audience of fashion week didn’t desert. 32 fashion shows, 8 unisex proposals, uncountable press days. A kermis that as always entertains, informs and divides public opinion. Yes, because at least once everybody wondered: can we use the outfit that walk the catwalk even in our ordinary life?
Well, some ideas are too daring and sometimes ridiculous. But fashion means extravagance and so must be understood: take the best and make it yours.
Do you need hints and advices? Ask Primpy! Here some tips about how, where and when to wear the must have items of this Men’s Fashion Week.
You can choose it with stripes like the one proposed by Zegna, red like Emporio Armani or in more classic tones, in any case this outerwear must be part of your wardrobe. It’s perfect to finish a casual look and, moreover, will give your outfit a sporty touch. Dear girls, put it on and show off your cheerleader soul. Match it with skinny jeans or a jersey cotton miniskirt, your American style will be flawless.
If you don’t feel ready for a silver star pattern suit with metallic details like Christian Pellizzari proposed during the fashion week, you can pick other patterns. Vertical striped, checkered and camouflage are the best compromises. Opt for a striped shirt in blue shades and match it with regular pants or jeans. If you want to dare more, a checked suit combined with a basic t-shirt will allow you to have a vintage but trendy look. For women, a military camouflage print jacket is perfect if worn with neutral shorts (black or beige) or with unstructured jeans.
Nostalgia of your childhood? Comfort is at your feet; Velcro shoes are fashionable again. Dear men, no more stress! It seems to be one of the new trends for 2018, a back in love that in its minimal version is the perfect finishing of an outfit composed with shorts and top. Yes, even men have to show their skin! This kind of shoes are a good option if you don’t want to put on the sneakers that, even in next season, will be a summer must have. Velcro shoes are ok also for women that, during their stressful days, could choose comfort instead of seduction. Be careful! These shoes are allowed only for a morning outfit matched with sporty pants or jeans. Never with a skirt, never in the night. Claro?!
