MILAN — As preparations for the upcoming runway shows enter their final phase, top designers and brands took a moment to share their inspirations for the upcoming season. Everything from radical rebels to the modern traveler will be represented at the men’s shows here, which kick off Friday.
DIESEL BLACK GOLD, creative team “The collection we are presenting in Milan represents an evolution of our roots: It draws inspiration once again from military constructions and vintage biker pieces with added Seventies-style cuts. The rich fabrics, the refined leathers and exquisite finishings, not to mention special treatments, give a new role to these clothes. The ‘cleanest’ cuts lend the garments an alternative elegance. This is our vision of the contemporary man.”
