The Luca Larenza AW16 collection was all about aethestics. Flowing color contrasts and shades made a big impact. Fabrics such as knits, silks and wool gave the garments a luxury feel.

The interpretation of winter coats and two-tone hats was classical but stylish. Grey straight-leg pants, boxy coats and white sheerling-lined jackets were eye-pleasing. We loved the yellow and green colors, giving the collection a natural feel. Plaids, color pops and layers made the collection quite urban.

Each item was meticulous yet wearable, and perfect for a man who deals with the chaos of metropolitan life.

BDMOTP kicked off Milan Uomo Fashion week with the Corneliani runway. Corneliani is a brand of sheer and utter perfection, one with eternal, recognizable style.

The AW16 collection was no different: we saw a beautiful, exquisite style. Starting off strong with the excellent choice of music, ”Walking in the Rain” and scenes representing a cobblestone street wet from the rain, the dapper menswear marched along the runway.

Suits following the silhouette of the body in brown and dark green tones, soft sweaters in orange, long, grey coats and large weekender bags all had a firm elegance. Long raincoats with hoods were also top-notch. The collection was smooth and dark, perfect for a stormy fall. It seems that Corneliani is still committed to quality, tradition and modernity. The line, reminiscent of the 1940s, was perfect for a classical gentleman.

The Iceberg presentation at Milan Uomo fashion week showed pop-street art styles and played with colors. The collection was exciting and youthful, especially with the Mickey Mouse masks covering the models’ faces. It took us back to those childhood days at Disney World, with playful touches added onto the long sweaters like big pockets.

Young generations will love the prints, reflecting a fusion between street style, pop art and cartoons. The bright color palette adds liveliness and cheer to the collection. We love the colored jackets and tracksuits with fur. Iceberg seems to connect the incompatible. We also took note of an olive green jacket with big zipper in the middle of the sleeve with a deep pocket on the trousers, almost bursting with energy. Fused with a sporty attitude and printed graphics, Iceberg’s current collection seems like a relaxed take on fashion. Iceberg’s imaginary world of cartoon is perfect for a stylish gentleman that doesn’t take himself too seriously.

BDMOTP stepped in the world of high fashion men’s shoes at the Zanotti presentation in Milan Uomo Fashion Week. Celebrating the true freedom of expression, we really felt as if we had stepped back in the 70s or 80s. Even during a week filled with Italian glamour, Zanotti really stands out and seems to be almost untouchable on the global shoe scene.

Each shoe was beyond glam. Shiny with elegant details, each shoe had a sexy silhouette, exquisite embellishments and superior craftsmanship. The shoes were created from exotic materials: snakeskin, embossed leather, velvet, metallic foil, gold zippers, studs, chains, metal plates and more. These beautiful materials express a truly contemporary vision of luxury.

An interesting trend was mixing the elegant looks with biker-style. A brave attempt, and it worked! Another more extreme look was the hybrid between a sneaker and elegant shoe, with metal and a gold Zanotti logo. Speaking of sneakers, even those were fabulous. Monochrome in colors like black, white, blue and burgundy, they were suitable to wear with everything.

With an assortment of colors and fabrics, Zanotti strives to give men style but with functionality.

It was the Pitti Uomo 89, and we’d traveled a ways to get there. As BDMOTP covers cities all over the world, you can probably imagine that most of our team members are avid travelers, especially our CEO Alton Barber, who flew into Florence from Washington DC (after visiting London and in route to Milan, of course). And avid travelers need solid, quality luggage that can keep up with them.

Crash Baggage is a stylish solution for all your baggage woes. The brand got its start when designer Francesco Pavia noticed how often his luggage was ruined at the airport and decided it was time to create something original and and different–baggage that was already damaged! Using Crash Baggage, no one will notice any new dents and scratches as the bags themselves are created with their own personal and artistic pre-formed damages.

The unique and ‘damaged’ luggage comes in various sizes, so you can select the right one to fit your adventure. Coming soon–a new ‘bump’ collection that will feature backpacks, totes and weekenders. Best of all? This eco-friendly luggage line is made with sustainable plastic. Handle your Crash Baggage without care, as new dents are warmly welcomed!

Duchamp’s AW16 showcase, titled ‘Code London’, focused on five key notions of dress for the modern London man: ‘Creative Business’, ‘Tonal Layers’, ‘Innovative Texture’, ‘Winter Florals’ and ‘Artistic Features’. These concepts eschew the stiff, bland nature of traditional city wear, in favour of a more artful approach.

The theme was evident throughout the collection – a colour block jacket in burgundy and black was shown alongside moiré-weave tailoring and a statement floral-print blazer in appealing shades of blue and white.

A clever combination of textures, fabrics and patterns prevailed, with cotton and silk shirts layered under wool jackets woven using distorted threads. Bloom-print shirting, discreet woodgrain stripes and pronounced checks furthered a sense of sophisticated eccentricity – a Duchamp design signature.

Geometric jacquard and dip-dyed silk scarves added interest and erudition to the suiting, alluding to the concept of ‘Artistic Features’ – the idea that men use accessories to express their creative character.

For a label that built a reputation on a use of bold colours and patterns, it runs the risk of straying into garish territory, but under creative director Gianni Colarossi, its sartorial calling cards are used in an intelligent and considered manner. The dynamic AW16 collection is a welcome respite in a formalwear world dominated by muted tones and unassuming prints.

In a marked departure from last season’s futurist feel, head of design Darren Barrowcliff took Hardy Amies back to its roots for a lesson in quiet Savile Row elegance.

The AW16 presentation, held in the polished surrounds of the Mayfair Arts Club, showcased a mix of masculine tailoring with a slightly casual spin that the inimitable Mr Amies himself would have been proud to don.

Highlights included a belted alpaca car coat in a cognac herringbone cloth and a charcoal double-breasted checked two-piece. Black tie dressing was given a modern revamp with a dinner suit jacket crafted in cognac cashmere – a refreshing alternative to traditional black.

Colours and patterns were low-key and timeless – navy, black and charcoal accompanied earthier shades of camel, cognac and soft mink. A dash of salt and pepper, check and herringbone were thrown in for good measure. Fabrics had an unashamed plushness with premiums wools, cashmere and alpaca cloths all part of the assortment.

A discreet hint of utility detail was provided in the form of cargo pockets sewn onto wool trousers, whilst fine-wale cord slacks and ribbed wool beanies added a nonchalant touch.

It was a thoroughly British selection that felt appropriate to the way men dress now – both refined and enduring, with a practical ability to dress up or down for any occasion.

Sean Suen wowed at the final day of London Collections: Men. The designs were boxy and modern, covered with embellishments like metal buttons and zippers. The coats were unlike any other we’d seen thus far at LC:M, with the added detailing and colorblocked lines. Pants ranged from baggy to skinny and many of the looks featured leather trousers, pairing well underneath the oversize, boxy coats. The occasional touch of plaid kept up with the current trends, but the looks themselves were quite original, a welcome change from the sameness we’d witnessed thus far in London for AW16.

Suen plays a bit with a military theme, with tan and green, buttons and plaques set along shoulders, but still, something feels alternative about the line and non-conformist, which BDMOTP finds to be a real feat this day in age.

Enter room. See footwear suspended in chains. Cue intrigue.

Yup, that’s pretty much how things go every season with the talented and illustrious Diego Vanasibarra shoe collection. For AW16, expect to swim in a sea of metal: studes and chains, ropes and handcuffs…no this isn’t a Ludacris song, it’s actually just a tasteful, futuristic take on shoes. And well, we love it.

The collection is aptly named Hoist, and let me tell you that none of Vanassibara’s intricate details nor impeccable tailoring is lost in such a sassy and urban new collection. In fact, his signature wood shoe panels can still be found if you look closely enough, mixed in so perfectly with the metal studding that you’d think silver and wood came from the same plant.

The hottest new thing in the interior design world is mixing wood and metal. People are decorating their homes with both, juxtaposing these two elements to create intrigue and wonder. Mixing wood, leather and metal means mixing soft with hard and rough with smooth. If it works in home, why wouldn’t it work on your feet? And let me assure you, it certainly does work—Hoist gives men a new way to express themselves. Men can be strong and tough, but also soft and vulnerable in a Vanassibara Hoist shoe.

Loafters, oxfords, boots and even casual slip-ons can be found with the metal embellishments and there is a shoe, sandal or boot to properly suit every occasion.  Vanassibara pushed the limits with Hoist, and we can’t wait to wear a pair.

Luxe is the best word to describe the Louis Leeman AW16 collection. Covered in rich fabrics like velvet, sequins, tribal patterns or embellishments, each Leeman shoe had a glamorous feel, even the casual gym shoe or slip-ons. Each shoe outdid the last, and no shoe was left untouched or embellished!

Crocodile skins, gems and chains adorned the footwear, and there was plenty of casual (however, even the most casual had a bit of glam) and dressy looks to choose from. The footwear had a warm and wintery feel–cozy and comforting. A winter scene was even depicted on one of the shoes as a pattern, making us yearn for snowy nights by the fireplace in a pair of Leeman loafers.

You could lounge in a mountain cabin in a pair of Leeman shoes. You could hit the town in a pair of Leeman shoes. You could casually spend a wintery day holiday shopping in a pair of Leeman shoes. This collection is so inclusive, you could do just about anything in a pair of Leemans!
