The Spring ’14 menswear shows are under way in Milan. Before their wares hit the runway, we’ve asked some of the most anticipated names to offer a sneak peek. Per usual, it’s a busy time for all—designers and fashion followers alike—so we’re continuing our split-second previews: tweet-length previews at 140 characters or less. Our complete collection of Spring ’14 previews is available here.
WHO: Salvatore Ferragamo, designed by Massimiliano Giornetti
WHEN: Sunday, June 23
WHAT: “Fusing iconography & know-how, sportswear is reinterpreted w/ fine tailoring. Formalwear is imbued w/ the efficiency & comfort of sportswear.” — Massimiliano Giornetti. The designer sent us a snap of his mood board, above.
It’s no secret that fashion is having an affair to remember with punk right now, so it’s fitting that vinyl and PVC also made subversive waves on the Fall runways. Donatella Versace ratcheted up the fetish factor with her “Vunk”-themed lineup full of the shiny stuff (left), while Joseph Altuzarra and Jonathan Saunders gave corseted looks a kinky kick by whipping them up in technical poly- and patent leather, respectively. (Speaking of kick, we couldn’t get enough of Karl Lagerfeld’s glossy thigh-high boots.) But slick synthetics weren’t exclusively used in a sexy context this season. The rain-resistant material was a practical yet eye-catching choice for the classic trenches and mackintosh coats that turned up at Burberry Prorsum, Maison Martin Margiela, and Salvatore Ferragamo, to name a few.

Happy Spring? Well, not quite. Today is the official equinox, but judging by the recent chill, not to mention the impromptu snowstorms (more flurries on the way tomorrow!), it might be a little early to break out the shorts and sundresses. Instead, we suggest ringing in the season with some of Spring ’13′s suede jackets, full-length furs (thank you, Miu Miu), and leather everything. When we saw them on the runways last September, the cozy wares from Haider Ackermann, Sacai, and Salvatore Ferragamo may have seemed nonsensical, but given the frigid weather, they’ve proven more than seasonable.
The Fall ’13 menswear collections continue this week in Milan, before heading off to Paris. Prior to their shows, we’ll be breaking off bite-size previews of what’s to come from some of the most anticipated names.
WHO: Salvatore Ferragamo
WHEN: Sunday, January 13
WHERE: Milan, Italy
WHAT (TO EXPECT): “Nighttime in a buzzing metropolis: a frenzy of pulsating lights and their reflections in the mobile obscurity of wet asphalt.” —Massimiliano Giornetti, creative director. He offers a glimpse at his mood board, above.
