All eyes in the fashion industry were focused on Milan Men’s Fashion Week where a number of menswear collections were showcased for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2018 season. A wide variety of styles and themes were presented by established and start-up designers who either broke stereotypes by innovation or remained traditional and brought trends of our past back to life in their own creative ways. While the style of clothing within each collection cannot be compared to one another, we can notice a similarity in color, textures and patters throughout this year’s Mens Fashion Week.

The retro vibe within every look is brought life by the hues, textures, and patterns that are incorporated throughout the collection.
