Fratelli Rossetti brings some special newness to their collection for SS18 at Milan Fashion Week Mens. Aptly titled “Ocean Weave,” the shoe collection is woven by hand in fishing villages around Italy. Three kinds of weaves are present in the new collection: a large, perforated pattern, a zigzag and the Rossetti signature micro-weave. Additionally, the collection celebrates the 60th anniversary of the brand, which is still owned and run by the Rossetti family.

Each shoe in the collection is made from only the best leather and suede, ensuring you can comfortably wear the shoes without socks in the hot summer. The leather soles are also hand-painted in with the same colors as the rest of the shoe.

This season, the colors were rather unique. The tones, reflecting the title, were created specifically to mimic the colors of the ocean, like shades of the ocean, the sky, the sand and the greenish shrubbery. The presentation was set up specifically to feel the the ocean vibes, with models sitting upon ropes and rocks, Fratelli Rossetti shoes delicately place on their feet.

BDMOTP especially loves the bright greenish yellow loafer with the larger weave. Once of the most originally footwear pieces we’ve spotted for SS18, we can’t help but crave to walk the sandy shores in this stylish shoe.

Welcome to Bar Tiptoe, where Santoni is serving up fresh espresso, warm croissants and delicious footwear. Yup, you heard right. For SS18, Santoni decided to change things up a bit and host a small soiree featuring coffee, snacks and shoes, all served up on a silver platters. After all, everything seems to look better served to you on a silver platter, right?

Waiters walked around with their trays, you never did know what you might get. Perhaps a small pistachio tart, perhaps a cold glass of fruit infused water…or maybe a pair of deep green dresses shoes with two class side buckles. In fact, this season seemed to be characterized by the deep, rich green and blue leather tones. The brushed grey leather was also a a special look, giving the shoe both depth and texture.

A few selections of white dress shoes were passed around on trays, unique styles, a whole new world away from the typical gym shoe, that buckled and laced. A shiny patent leather loafer glimmered in the sunlight, perfect for that wedding or dressier occasion you can’t see to find the right footwear for. Summer is complete here too, with a snazzy pair of leather flip flops so you can look just as cool at the beach as you do walking around the city, the town or at work. Santoni’s got you for every occasion, it seems.

Ermanno Scervino showed their SS18 collection at Milan Fashion Week Uomo, entitled “Today I Love You.” This season, Scervino chose to go a more casual, modern route than in past years, creating wearable weekend looks for men. He took inspiration from different time periods and cultures, especially Great Britain.

BDMOTP loved the palm tree sweaters layered over striped tees and casual khaki shorts. In fact, the palm trees were the chosen motif of the collection and the oversize Bermuda shorts, a tribute to the Prince of Wales, was a distinctive feature of the line. Just because the line seemed more relaxed doesn’t mean it wasn’t impeccably tailored, of course, and each thread was perfectly woven into the next on each garment. There was the occasional suit appearance paired with soft leather weekender bags and briefcases, and military-inspired outerwear was layered over plaid button-up shirts and white denim pants.

In case you forgot the title of the collection, belts spelling out “Today I Love You” were found on some of the looks. The athleisure trend is still going strong for SS18, and don’t be surprised to see casual button-up shirts half tucked into relaxed jogging pants, sweats or track pants, lined with a strip or band along the side. Sneakers sans laces also paired along with some of the looks, keeping the collection light, casual and carefree.

BDMOTP favorite: The plaid overcoat layered over a red and white striped sweater.

Italian-inspired for an Italian brand, Cifonelli presented their SS18 collection at Milan Fashion Week Uomo. Inspired by the sweet life of 1950s Rome, the collection wass stylish, chic and and modern, despite it’s 50s ideals.  After chatting with the designer, BDMOTP decided this was Cifonelli’s most intricate collection yet, and we can’t wait to sport some of the pieces.

With soft tones of grey and beige plaid (and let’s not forget the traditional black and white) the collection has a very Cary Grant vibe, thanks to the single-breasted jackets with three-button closures, a relaxed yet tailored fit that sits well on any man, despite size or shape.

The Renatto jacket is another BDMOTP favorite, featuring a four-button closure and patch pockets. The Paolo jacket is a bit heavier for a chillier spring day, finished in both tweed and suede. No matter how hot or warm, the straw fedoras and open-collared shirts will keep a gentleman cool and sexy at the same time. Sandals and snazzy dress shoes are reminiscent of the 1950s inspirations, and we can just see one of the models now climbing onto his Vespa for a quick spin around the city. Or wait, was that now, or was it 1955? Could be either!

DAKS took a spin at the Henley Royal Regatta for SS18 at Milan Fashion Week. The story was set right from the get go: a runway complete with a large wooden boat and other vintage artifacts signifying the start of a day filled with crew races. And one runway show, of course.

DAKS always gives a whole new meaning to the word dapper. Retro looks of baggys, striped shirts and sweaters tucked in beneath vests, leather jackets and blazers set the scene. Models walked the runway with derby hats (Daks calls them boat racing hats) and false mustaches, setting the scene for an antique day at at the races.

Trends for SS18 include the baggy linen white pant and the concept of tucking anything and everything into the pant, such as vests, sweaters, shirts, tees all in basic, warm tones like beige, off white and brown. While the looks are decidedly a tribute to the past, modern touches still come through, like plaid for spring, stripes and of course, solid leather. To top it off, hats featured small House Check ribbons.

BDMOTP is always a fan of DAKS, as their preppy, British looks sit well with our savvy, sartorial readers. This season we can’t help but love the vintage vibe, so hop onboard and pickup your hat for the regatta here!

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.
