Eleventy prides themselves on being the perfect brand for a contemporary young man. Their light and airy spring collection is idea for a modern male, offering plenty of casual and dressy options for any occasion. This season, Eleventy takes a whole new take on the suit, creating what they deem a relaxed suit– sporty pants featuring an elastic waistband as well as a smart casual suit, which is the concept of wearing baggy, more casual pants paired with a formal suit jacket on top. We saw quite a bit of crisp white in the collection, which we absolutely loved for summer.

BDMOTP loves the concept of taking elegant looks and creating a more casual style for a modern man. Whereas we love a solid formal look, the reality is that this day in age, men need options. Being able to own a regular suit, a relaxed suit and smart casual suit ensures you’ll be covered for any of your (suiting) needs.

Uzbek entrepreneur and designer Ferutdin Zakirov showed a three-part collection for SS17 almost entirely in grey and blues. Each garment is carefully constructed in Italy by only the best tailors and artisans. The first part of the collection consists of the famous Naples-style suits, perfect a business gentleman heading to work or meetings. Leather and snakeskin jackets for light outerwear go that extra mile.

The second part of the collection is all about elegance. Tuxedos and silks create simple yet luxury looks appropriate for evening.

Finally, the third part of the collection is dedicated to leisure wear. Denim, cotton shirts, swimwear and even underwear make up this part of the collection.

All gentlemanly needs are met by this large collection, and we can’t help but yearn for our very own snakeskin leather jacket, made from only the softest and most supple leather. Not to mention the snakeskin shoes, of course.

The Junli SS17 collection at Milan Uomo was a pleasant surprise for BDMOTP. The collection was inspired by the idea of destruction and raw parts, giving form to trends like many layers and sharp cuts. Long vests and jackets are ever-present within the line. The concept of deconstruction might lead you to believe the collection was messy, but don’t worry, that was not the case. Actually, the tailoring and craftsmanship proved impeccable. Colorblocking is another concept used within the collection, taking to a whole other level of contemporary. We look forward to seeing what Junli can bring to the table in future seasons.

Slip on the glam with Edhen’s SS17 collection, which has a jungle-inspired theme.

Perched upon tropical plants, the Edhen collection was a fun one, with brightly colored slip-ons and bold loafers.

A ballet-flat style for men is something BDMOTP hasn’t seen much of before and Edhen offered this shoe in a tweed, straw woven material, which was very summery.

The red, yellow and blue flats with animal and palm tree motifs could take any suit to the next level, in a sort of Mad Men-esque weekend in Palm Springs or Miami.

The motto for the Dondup presentation for SS17 was “A journey. A style. A man.”


Simple yet elegant, just like the actual Dondup collection! The collection included mixed sportswear separates and suits that were relaxed and fun, with a large focus on stripes. Materials like leather, suede, denim and linen were all used, and the looks ranged from day to evening, though all were paired with relatively casual shoes like sandals, lace ups or even Tom-style espadrilles.


The Dondup SS17 collection was youthful and cool without being weird or too crazy and any young gentleman should pickup a garment from them.

Silvio Fiorello showed a wild collection of silk prints on ties, bowties and shirts for SS17. The collection at Milan Uomo Fashion Week, which just so happened to honor their 30th anniversary, was bold, bright and shiny.

The accessories were printed with intricate paisleys and funky prints. The concept I see for these particular items is giving personality to an otherwise tame suit or outfit. Why not at a bit of pizzazz to your black suit with a printed ladybug pocket square?

But don’t let these loud colors and prints fool you as the collection is very high-end. Regardless of the colorful prints and patterns, this silk is perfection. One tie in particular even had real silver threads woven into it.

Decidedly Italian, Fiorello brings a little bit of fun to the table. Just enough to spice up your outfit, but not so you much you won’t be taken seriously as a gentleman.

The Silvio Fiorello AW16/17 collection is all about silk, perfect for day or evening wear. All the products are handcrafted in Sicily, Italy, and you can almost feel that each and every one is made with special attention.

The luxurious silk ties have beautiful patterns using bold colors and some even use REAL gold and silver thread. New for this collection is the Border Tie, which had a square edge with a contrasting border at the tip. Fiorello advises you to wear this new style of tie with a matching pocket square for the utmost dapper look.

These season, we see masculine themes running through the ties, as well as playful and geometric patterns. You can find these intricate patterns not only on ties, but also on silk shirts, scarves, pocket squares and more. Silvio Fiorello silks are the perfect addition to accessorize that otherwise plain or simple suit this fall.

Sergio Rossi is all about signature, authentic Italian style. Demure loafers and crisp oxfords shine with utmost elegance. For AW16/17 the Rossi collections adds a bit of trend to their more traditional selection by adding fur. Fur-lined boots and even fur-lined chunky gym shoes were a part of the prized line.

Boots also seems to be trending this season, the chunkier the better. Buckles of all and any kinds added detailing to the boots as well as to various style of slip-on oxfords.

Rossi is perfect for a classical gentleman looking to give a slight pop to his wardrobe without taking things too far.

Au Jour Le Jour showed a youthful, funky collection for AW16/17. The 70s and 80s are strongly reference with stonewashed grey denim, plaid long trenches, corduroy pants and houndstooth/herringbone-esque patterns occupying the garments. The prints game was strong for the coming season, featuring sorts of patterns and shapes in various colors dotting the clothing.

Colors were bold. A bright gold, combined with shades of grey and navy plus pops of bright red. Quirky details like tassels, lion badges and stripes gave the collection a fun and vivacious vibe. The collection, which probably should have been called Uptown Funk, is perfect for a younger gentleman wanting to get noticed.

The Christian Pellizzari catwalk was filled with plaids and patterns. Using pops of color in one of our favorite winter hues, oxblood, streamlined, belted onesies and fitted sportswear stole the show.

We loved the bathrobe silhouette, a long, comfortable belted sweater coat we saw in oxblood. The long trenches also complemented the contained lines of the garments.

Fabrics were also luxe, with a smattering of velvet, fringe, and silk. Really, Pellizzari combined some slim, utilitarian looks with elegant style, which we really haven’t seen so far. Mixing downtown with  uptown, the idea that a trendy, funky man could still look dapper and classic is a beautiful thing.
