This season, Guiseppe Zanotti took his footwear line and branched out. Using interesting new materials on his shoes for SS18 such as denim and neoprene, the Zanotti look has always been wild, but this was a whole new ballgame. Inspired by the 90s, Zanotti took his bedazzled and colorful sneakers to the top once again, but added some functional twists. Besides the new shoe fabrics, Zanotti also showed some clothing such as jackets and pants, plus some backpacks.

Part of the collection was more subdued than Zanotti usually takes it, but with small touches like a silver bow tie on a loafer or simply some new, cool colors like an olive green or a grey suede. As usual, his kitschy sneakers were a very prominent part of the collection, with gold, silver and colorful adornments. The neoprene sneak were a modern experiment, one we think will work thanks to the comfort of the shoes. Some of the SS18 top styles also include a denim loafer and boot, both new takes on what musicians from the 1990s ofen wore.

“Mandals,” or man-sandals, were also part of the collection. In both black and military colors, Zanotti took some inspiration from the Greek gladiator sandal, using a variety of thick straps and a wide, flat sole for a summery yet urban, stylish look.

We’re used to Zanotti being creative, but this year he really took things to a new level, incorporating some different styles and concepts into his footwear –there really is something for every man in the SS18 collection.

Corneliani showed a strong SS18 collection at Milan Uomo this season, with five different capsule collections allowing clients to discover the perfect jacket and outfits based on their preferred hobby. Each of the five collections was dedicated to a specific activity: biking on motorcycles, riding horses, driving vintage cars, sailing and golfing. Based on the activity, a small line was created with clothes inspired by it.

Perfectly complimenting the male shape, the jackets were the main point of each collection. Biking was leather and lambskin, perfect for a windy day cruising on the motorbike. Riding featured jersey knit and driving was created from wool, extra tear-resistant. Sailing was blue, and of course wind and waterproof, and golfing had a preppy vibe, made from knit. Zips, buttons and insets made each jacket perfectly compliment the hobby. From material to color, these capsule collections were created with an attention to detail so precise that any gentleman would be thrilled to invest in a solid jacket or otherwise from Corneliani. The jackets are also a piece of history too — as the famous attached chest piece is actually a signature Corneliani look created by the brand over 10 years back.

But functionality is important too. A sailing piece isn’t just a sailing piece because it’s blue. The clothes don’t just look good, but the move and work with the body, ensuring you can participate in all of these activities and many more in both comfort and style.

Oversize was the name of the game at South Korean designer Munsoo Kwon’s Milan Fashion Week runway show. Having seen the brand before in Seoul, BDMOTP was very excited to learn they would be gracing the Milan runways, and the show did not disappoint.

Inspired by individualism through the years, Kwon based his collection on a number of themes. The concept of yuppies —  young urban professionals in the 1980s, then the bobos, those engulfed in material culture and of course, yolos or millennials, people who live in the moment.

The collection was full of layers, stiff, voluminous shirts layered over wide-leg pants and topped with a large, floating trench. Huge striped sweaters with huge necklines and baggy sleeves were layered over floral and striped tank tops and shirts.

Utility jumpsuits and two-piece sets gave off a workman’s vibe, as well as a military feeling, with camo prints and beige and green garments. Pinstripes and denim reflect some of the yuppie trends. Comfortable anoraks and track pants give millennials that in the moment hedonism.

Baseball hats were paired with many of the looks as well. Models walked the runway in mismatched shoes, perhaps contributing towards that individualism theme– each foot is a different part of personality? BDMOTP isn’t quite sure the mismatched shoe trend will take off, but we can definitely see a Brooklyn millennial sporting the oversize trenches next spring, perfect for a cool, relaxed look or even to stay warm and dry on a windy, rainy spring day in 2018.

One of the reasons BDMOTP is always a fan of Canali is because their items are always perfect tailored but are also functional. Sometimes it’s hard to get that exactly right, and a gentleman hoping to be comfortable may sacrifice that for the sake of style — but not with Canali.

In fact, the SS18 collection, entitled ‘The Impeccable Traveler’ is exactly that. A traveling gentleman is in even more in need of items that look good but wear well during long journeys and layovers. Globetrotters can now rejoice, though, because Impeccabile 2.0, the name of the fabric created exclusively for Canali is a reality for SS18. The fabric has been made from extra-fine wool, twisted extensively to create the perfect pull and natural stretch while still being light and breathable. Oh and did which mention the fabric is also waterproof and creaseless? Perhaps it should actually be called invincible! Plus, interesting details make it even better: shirts with pockets to rest your hands or slip that boarding pass into are especially useful when traveling.

Of course, style is never given up, despite the durability of the Canali garments. The lines and sleek shape of the suits and blazers are cut to perfection, and the basic hues of blues, browns, greys and blacks are brightened with pops of orange and sunshine yellow. In fact, the trench is sunshine yellow is a piece BDMOTP can’t wait to get their hands on. Cool backpacks and chic yet comfortable shoes are accessories a best dressed traveler will definitely want to get his hands on.

The Italian brand MSGM only started back in 2009 by designer Massimo Giorgetti, but has hit the fashion scene hard during the past few years, slowly growing in cult popularity. For SS18, colors, stripes and monogrammed garments walked the runway. Starting off with black and white boxy layers, shorts paired with tees and covered by a windbreaker and scarf, the color soon came forward. Patterns like stripes and camoflauge were a huge trend and many models sported baseball hats and long scarves with MSGM written over them.

Plaid is also a trend that is going to carry on through fall into SS18. Mixing patterns, plaid paired with camo paired with stripes walked the runway. Of course, if this seems like just a bit too much, you can simply invest a a key piece or two filled with pattern and color and pair it with a more subdued solid.

MSGM seems to be youthful and fun, participating in the athleisure-style trend without going overboard. Elements of late 80s and early 90s grunge can be found among the collection, but nothing too literal, simply a reference here and there taking us into more modern silhouettes. These clothes are clearly for a man who perhaps doesn’t need to go into the office daily and can wear more relaxed and casual looks. And for a man looking to make a bold, exciting statement, try on the WOW t-shirt and see what the day brings to you.

For SS18, Dirk Bikkembergs pulled away from their traditionally sporty look and went all in with strong, simple looks created from basic lines. Masculine and intense, what you see is what you get with the SS18 Bikkembergs collection. Colors started off with black, white, navy and pops of a cool seafoam green. Beige plaid was also present, and it seems plaid will be a spring trend, not just a winter one, going forward. We’re definitely onboard for year-long plaid.

One of BDMOTP’s favorite looks is the simple concept of the leather panels on long, straight trenches and shorter, boxy jackets. These two small strips of leather, although minimal, took the simple design and make it intricate and sophisticated. Elements of colorblocking fit right in with the boxy, straight silhouettes of the pants, jackets and vests. Models marched the runways looking fierce in lace-up combat-style boots and modern, sleek sneakers. Large, functional pocked lined the long trench coats and lines and cuffs detailed the trousers.

Although the line had plenty of spring wear, like long jackets, boots and pants, there were layers involved and a few pairs of shorts. That being said, the collection seemed to be more spring heavy than summer heavy. If you want to go to the beach — you should probably look elsewhere. But for a masculine spring filled with intensity and strength, Bikkembergs is where it’s at. Plus, if you can pull of the seafoam green, you should go for it and make a real fashionable statement.

Philipp Plein is known for having some of the most eventful catwalks in Milan. The SS18 runway was no different. The stage was set: a recreation of “Grease” with motorcycle and fancy cars like Ferraris, Lamborghinis and McLarens doing all sorts of flaming stunts. The show ended with monster trucks, artists performing songs from Grease and of course, an appearance from Jeremy Meeks, the current “it” model, who is also nicknamed Hot Mugshot Guy, Hot Convict and Prison Bae.

It may be hard to focus on the fashion with so much going on, but it went right along with the theme. Obviously leather was a key point, with leather jackets and t-shirts with flames. Denim was also a huge trend, and luxury crocodile skin jackets paired a little glamour with the punk. Shoulder patches featuring tigers and panthers were decidedly placed on sweaters and most of the looks were paired with studded shoes of some kind, either sneakers or dressier shoes. Skulls were another theme — and you can find them patched, bedazzled and sewn onto many of the garments.

The Plein experience is never complete without the after party. This season, besides being able to check out the fancy cars (heavily guarded by security, of course) you could spin a around on a different set of wheels. There was actually a carnival ride of bumper cars placed in the venue so fashion show and after party attendees could morph back to their childhood and have a little carnival fun. This was most likely the only fashion week event where drinking and driving was not only accepted, but encouraged.

Damir Doma brought a variety of colors and oversize garments for their SS18 collection. An eclectic mix of styles and tastes, you never really know what to expect from Damir Doma.

Not the first designer this season to throw in some cool pops of seafoam green, the collection featured many colors and patterns, all splashed upon baggy garments. For example, a baggy, striped suit or a huge overcoat layered on various garments with different patterns. Models (both male and female) sported chunky necklaces and we also loved that diverse collection of models. They seemed to be rather gender fluid — many of the looks could, in theory work for men or women. We also loved pops of gold layered underneath suits and trench coats.

Asymmetric shirts and coats were held together with white shoelaces laced up — an interesting alternative to a traditional button, snap or buckle. Many of the looks were paired with bowling style shoes, but something it just seemed to work.

BDMOTP loved the sweaters featured. Although the collection is technically for spring and summer, a lightweight, baggy black and white sweater could look really cool layered over a pair of shorts. Of course, seaform green is a color we are excited to see more of for next spring and summer.

Songzio is another South Korean designer we’ve had the pleasure of seeing on the Seoul Fashion Week catwalks. This season, for his SS18 collection “Crossing Veils,” which walked the London Fashion Week Mens runway, he took inspiration from one single phrase: “Man, in his night, searches for his own light.”

This may lead you to think the collection would be dark, but not all of the looks were black, but instead, the collection walked the runway and show looks from black to white and everything in between. Some of the colors were inspired by a Diego Velazquez painting of the Infanta Margarita, who happened to be wearing a dress in colorful spring tones.

BDMOTP particuarly the springish looks — vertical wide-striped suits — an oversize take on a traditional seersucker fabric.  An interesting trend we haven’t seen much of for men at all is fringed pants. This has been popular for women in past seasons — especially spring seasons — however, we haven’t yet seen much of fringe for men, especially on trousers. Let it sink in and decide if you’re on board. Finally, icing on the springtime cake is the watercolor tee shirts peeking out underneath the blazers. Meant to be worn either on their own or underneath layers, these cool tee shirts can be paired with just about anything, and would be a great investment to get for those warm weather spring or summer days.

This season, Songzio also presented two footwear designs: a pair of derby shoes embellished with metal studs as well as some summery sandals.

Barbour presented a small sneak peek of the SS18 collection at London Fashion Week Mens of just eight looks. The looks were part of various capsule collections like ‘Originals,’ a more rugged selection and ‘Sport,’ which is featured a more relaxed athleisure style. Since BDMOTP values quality over quantity, we didn’t mind the small size of the collection, because it definitely measured up in quality.

The brand also spoke too its roots at the SS18 presentation, showing viewers the beginning of the brand back in 1936 through to 1964 when actor Steve McQueen wore Barbour as a member of the US motorcycling team. In case you’re wondering about the details, McQueen wore the iconic A7 International jacket in the 1964 ISDT.

It’s clear that from 1936 until now, Barbour has created dapper yet edgy fashions for men, and this season was no different. Most of the looks featured rugged, yet tailored utility jackets that seemed to focus on both style, comfort and fit. The jackets were layered over vintage-style tees and paired with tailored sweatpants and trousers. Sleek gym shoes also accompanied each look. Men could easily select just one piece from the Barbour collection or also snap up a whole outfit and sport it proudly.

We’d also like to give kudos to Barbour for using a selection of more diverse models, which is often hard to come by during the many fashion weeks. It just goes to show that anyone anywhere can sport Barbour fashions and look great.
