Trends : Escapism and optimism in Milan
Escapism and optimism clearly set the tone for many a menswear collection on the Spring 2018 runways in Milan over the past week.
Blazers, shirts, and ties paired with shorts, were a clear disruption of the traditional dress code for office attire. The dishevelled layering of suits and sportswear thrown together made for a new workwear uniform. And it is clear that we’re all going somewhere, with briefcases and travel bags the go-to accessory for the season.
The trends do tend to leave me wondering if the designers were at all influenced by the carefree and optimistic attitude of the millennial menswear consumer, those looking to challenge the status-quo?
