A special edition is seen in Milan for the MFW man, made of comfortable, transformative, interchangeable garments, free from diktats and genderless. Keyword: freedom.
Gigantic embroidered sweaters, upholstered ponchos for home and outdoor, xxl duvets, sheepskin vests, blankets, cargo pants, bermuda shorts and gaiters. To be worn all together, one on top of the other. They go on stage from Dsquared2 warm accessories, colorful interchangeable for her and him. The plus ultra is the maxi backpack made with Invicta, destined to (re)become a status symbol to show off.
Oversized lines and padded duvets for 1017 ALYX 9SM is the brand founded in 2015 by Matthew Williams, the former creative director of Givenchy.
For Zegna, on the other hand, the watchword is versatility. The garments are functional, elegant, fluid. The symbolic outfit of the collection is the monochromatic look in shades of brick orange, built for successive overlaps of tailored coats and sports jackets. A trend already inaugurated in 2019
And in addition to garments seen on the street and the catwalk, we could not help but be struck by the tribute to the great photographer Giovanni Gastel, who died last year after telling the contemporary history and the world through the faces of Barack Obama and Bebe Vio, Ettore Sottsass and Roberto Bolle, Mimmo Jodice and Monica Bellucci. Two hundred black and white faces were hosted at the Triennale. Faces of culture, art, fashion, architecture, and even of that high bourgeoisie at times aristocratic to which Gastel, nephew of Luchino Visconti, all his life pretended not to belong. “A sophisticated portraitist of the world, Gastel. Not only faces but bodies, fashions, jewelry, fabrics, environments. With a smile, he made the infallible and precise gesture of a great photographer seem easy”, says Stefano Boeri, president of Triennale Milano.
E oltre a capi visti per strada e in passerella non potevamo non essere colpiti dall’omaggio al grande Fotografo Giovanni Gastel, scomparso lo scorso anno dopo aver raccontato la storia contemporanea e il mondo attraverso i volti di Barack Obama e Bebe Vio, Ettore Sottsass e Roberto Bolle, Mimmo Jodice e Monica Bellucci.Duecento volti in bianco e nero ospitati alla Triennale. Volti della cultura, dell’arte, della moda, dell’architettura e anche di quell’alta borghesia a tratti aristocratica cui Gastel, nipote di Luchino Visconti, per tutta la vita ha fatto finta di non appartenere. “Un sofisticato ritrattista del mondo, Gastel. Non solo visi, ma corpi, mode, gioielli, tessuti, ambienti. Con un sorriso, faceva sembrare facile il gesto infallibile e preciso di un grande fotografo” dice Stefano Boeri, presidente di Triennale Milano.
