Milan's mens' fashion week brought some strong AW17 (and, indeed SS17) outfit goals on the streets outside the shows. A month on, it's the turn of the womenswear show attendees to strut their stylish stuff. Here are the guys who stood out for the right reasons.
MFW AW17 MEN’S STREET STYLE
By Matt Glazebrook, 3 March 2017
There's nostalgic 50s all-American style and there's this guy, who's a packet of cigs rolled up in his shirt sleeve away from heading off along the railway tracks to find a dead body.
Here's a lesson in taking your all-black cool-kid basics to the next level. Double sweatshirts, the jauntiest beanie, Gucci gift bag and a cocktail to go. It's the little things that make this look pop.
The trouble with bringing a strong back-print game is that no one wants a picture of your face. Ah well, when you’re delivering embroidered denim jacket goals as strong as these, anonymity is a sacrifice worth making.
Dude's got a bit of a henchman vibe, but that's no bad thing. Polished Doc Marten boots, coated black skinny jeans, and a black leather biker are sartorial strong man staples, while a layered up teal jumper says 'I may be a cold-blooded killer, but I still like to get cosy'.
The smart-meet-sports trend has popping off of late, on catwalk and off, and this showgoer is a one-man primer in the look. Smart outer layer plus sporty, zip-up top plus minimalist sneakers: it's basic fashion maths. The trousers are a wild-card – a pair of subtly patterned smart trousers would work great, but neat tracky bottoms (like his) are fine too.
Admittedly, private school bully from a 1980s teen movie isn't a look that leaps to mind as our new spring go-to, but this fella – with his boxy sport coat, high-waisted mid-wash jeans, normcore baseball cap and just a hint of aggressive undershirt – makes a pretty convincing case. Watch out, poindexters!
