Fashion Week brings out the best in Milanese fashion.
9 Jan 2019
Held in January and June, the events are stand-alone presentations of the latest men's fashion collections. As a fashion hub, Milan is an important destination for both fashion shows and shopping.
When is the next men's Fashion Week Milan, 2019.
The men's Milan Fashion Week in 2019 for the Autumn/Winter Collections took place during the second week of January, but the men's Spring/Summer Fashion Week shows are usually held around the middle of June. The women's Milan Fashion Week is held in February 2019, starting around four weeks after the men's event in January.
Men's fashion shows in Milan.
The men's fashion shows in 2019 included, typically, Italian designers such as Emporio Armani, Fendi and Versace. There were also presentations from Jimmy Choo, Etro and Tod's. Bright colours and animal prints featured heavily in the collections this season. We will see how these trends translate to the ready-to-wear pieces that will be available later in the year.
This season, MSGM went for fluorescent yellow, orange, and pink in adventurous colour combinations. Marni added bright orange to a cheetah print, while Dsquared2 gave us multi-coloured fish scales. Philipp Plein offered a combination of puffer coats and stylish urban wear. In his Billionaire line, Plein showed over-50 models in the most sumptuous fabrics and rich hues.
Milan street style.
The styles seen on men around the city were talked about almost as much as the shows. Layering up against the cold, we could see flashes of colour beneath fur-lined trench coats and thick scarves covering bright tartan shirts. Standing out from the crowd was the name of the game with the men attending fashion shows this year.

Shopping in Milan - an experience like nowhere else.
If Fashion Week has you in the mood for shopping, there are plenty of places to get your fix. In the centre of the city you can't miss the stunning cathedral: from there, the surrounding streets make up the main Fashion District. Designer stores and chic boutiques along with department stores are sure to satisfy your shopping urges.
Around the city, there are several shopping areas with stores featuring your favourite brands as well as independent labels that offer a fresh take on fashion. Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II is a breathtaking four-storey arcade dating back to 1877 with Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Armani among the brands featured there. At the opposite end of the scale, Porta Nuova is one of the newest developments in Milan which also offers clothing stores from Moschino and Muji.
