The Santoni SS17 collection at Milan Uomo held a very unique showing where shoes will hidden in giant gold lifesize box, and you had to peek through some holes to see them. The concept of the collection was clear: kitschy, different, innovative and fun!

We see lace ups, loafers and slips ons, fringe and tweed. Of course, signature sneakers were also part of the collection. Even though the collection was playful, don’t think for a minute that took away from Santoni’s hand-sewn elegance and perfect craftsmanship. Colors for spring were earthy with tones of blue and red, using materials like crocodile and calfskin.

Santoni always pushes the envelope in just the right ways, making for playful, sophisticated footwear any gentleman would love.

The Canali collections always emit elegance, and the SS17 collection definitely did so, but in a more casual, summery way. With more relaxed fits and silhouettes, the brand takes luxury into a more chill, comfortable style. Of course, their signature suits are present, along with plenty of fabulous jackets of varying lengths and materials.  Topping the BDMOTP hot list, the leather jackets look soft and stylish and come in some fantastic colors, such as a baby blue and rich brown. Some long trenches ensure that Canali isn’t dropping the ball on that trend. As per usual, Canali shows the freshest  looks but without going overboard–they still retain their Italian elegance.

We can’t help but swoon over the crisp burnt sienna looks that give the entire collection a warm colorful kick. Canali also pushes the envelope by showing no ties this season–instead–scarves delicately tied around the neck.

The Larenza SS17 Mexico-themed collection was showcased at the BONAVERIMILANO showroom, a simple, grey space with high ceilings and plenty of light. This small and curated collection was focused on the Mexican luchador and the bright colors really jumped out against the crisp metals and woods of the showroom.


The Luchador collection was inspired by masked Mexican fighters, and the vibrant colors, masks and stripes all represent the liveliness and boldness of these fighters. The collection, contained to mainly knitwear, would be something fun and casual to pair with denim or khaki for a chill weekend outfit.

This season at Orciani BDMOTP fell in love with the stunning leather backpacks in beautiful, bold spring colors like baby blue. The SS17 collection also features many bags in a new hammered leather style, of course, only the most luxurious leather used. Whereas the collection isn’t “officially” unisex, we think that women would enjoy it just as much as men, though please, gentleman, don’t get the wrong idea, these gorgeous leather goods are not feminine in the least. There are a few leather jackets in the collection too.

We especially enjoyed the return of the belts, as Orciani continues strong in SS17 with their famous No-Buckle belt, which allows you to pass through airport security without removing it, a dream come true for frequent travelers. Regular belts are also designed with grommets/studs and geometric woven patterns intricately sewn into the soft leather. As usual, we can’t wait to get our hands on this collection!

BDMOTP loves anything art deco, so we immediately fell in love with Bertoni’s art deco-inspired collection of bags for SS17. Molded in with the concept of a dreamer, the collection is not only cool but functional, offering silhouettes such as weekender bags, totes, backpacks and practical items like iPAD or e-book cases.


Each bag has an inspiring painted image of a plane or aircraft on the front. Baiting the travel-obsessed with bags and suitcases featuring planes? We are honestly surprised no one’s though of such a wonderful idea before!

In any case, we can’t wait to get our hands on the new three-fabric backpack or one of the plane clutches. Not to be left out, the Bertoni’s signature collection of trunks (a tribute to the brand’s heritage which dates back to 1939) offers the allure of the rich and famous, now of course, with plane images to boot!

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. But don’t think this collection is a mess: the tailoring and craftsmanship is 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.

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.

Edhèn- mod. Marais

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.

Edhèn- mod. Operà

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.
