Finest Styles by Milanese Designers Christian Pellizzari and Frankie Morello at MMFW

Sartorialism in the Milanese way will never go out of style. And with sartoliaism no longer clung to those with grey streaks or multi billion startups, it was a pleasure to see two Italian based designers in Milan bringing their vision of Italian style to life at Milan Mens Fashion Week (MFW aka MMFW).

Christian Pellizzari

A resort style collection featured a baroque style theme throughout, inspired by one of my favorite Italian cities, Venice. It was often a nudge to the other Venice in Los Angeles when I saw warmer and breezier tones and fabrics come to life in a charming collection. The four main colors were dark indigo, deep maroon, black and white, laced with gold and silver. There was a plethora of brocade and silk in the likes of loose fitting trousers and ruffle laced shirts were juxtaposed with Cali style tees and sweatshirts. The Venetian gondolier’s uniform of stripes gave way to a stunning style that contrasted well with the motifs, floral, palm leaf and geometric prints. Evidently, I fell for the sparkles, the silver motifs, and the textured ruffles the most, as they added pizzazz and an Italian flair to clean cuts.

The collection was split into two social media savvy parts, #beach and #InsideWater, with the obvious inspirations of each. My favorites were the latter in particular, as the runway was a pool of water that the models had to splash through! Adding to a dramatic effect and with obviously high production values, the collection itself was spellbinding too. Saturated with blues and futuristic sources of light from an abyss like world, the prints and makeup on the men was that of luminescence. Almost like a combination of tech and style, there were distressed jeans, mesh and black leather outerwear with silver and black metallic jewelry, layered jackets in earthy browns and oceanic blues, transitioning to monochrome black and white pieces. Many were borderline formalwear with and edge, like metallic details on collars and blazer lapels, alongside massive gold and silver metallic prints on tees. My favorites included the tattoos and artwork and chunky jewelry and accessories on the models who showcased a lot of promise for the future of the modern, masculine, experimental man.

 

With my eyes still dizzy from the spectacle, the Milanese designers had evidently created the best of the season.
