Milan Fashion Week Part 2

Most Popular

Expect sharper tailoring, even greater great coats and plenty of double breasted suits from our second instalment from Milan. Oh, and a few film stars strutting their stuff on the runway.

Emporio Armani

Combining gangster-inspired pieces (fedoras, double breasted flannel suits and floaty overcoats) with contemporary shapes, close-cut tailoring was order of the day at Emporio Armani

Key pieces: If Mr Armani has his way, you'll be donning a fedora by October.

Salvatore Ferragamo

Running with the moody tone set at many shows (must be the recession), Ferragamo's AW collection is all about louche suiting in dark shades. Tightly tailored jackets teamed with fluid trousers and plenty of leather accessories made for a sultry show.

Key Pieces: This double breasted suit in deep burgundy

Pringle of Scotland

Rusty shades, boxy tailoring and lots of very soft-looking knitwear made for one of the best Pringle outings of recent seasons.

Most Popular

Key pieces: This bright orange jacket stands out in the sea of muted shades that look set to dominate this season

Missoni

Pattern is big for summer, and judging by Missoni's AW collection, there's going to be plenty of it floating around for winter. Autumnal and understated, the looks were artfully layered and very wearable indeed.

Key pieces: the knitted jacket, a comfortable alternative to the sharper tailoring seen elsewhere

Prada

Miuccia Prada's A/W show featured the catwalk stylings of Gary Oldman, Adrien Brody, Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe, Emile Hirsch and Tim Roth, which could have drawn attention from the main event had the looks not been so compelling. From beautifully-cut, double breasted great coats to hefty-soled, super-smart lace-ups and a proliferation of roll-necks (worn beneath crisp white shirts) the look was somewhere between an off-duty Tsar Nicholas II and a tarted-up Mr Darcy.

Key pieces: the blood red, circular shades found on the nose of Adrian Brody and in the breast pockets of others will no doubt prove an essential late summer purchase.

Moncler Gamme Bleu

The go-to brand for padding, Tom Browne's latest collection for Moncler Gamme Bleu was as strong as ever - even if the down-filled, Formula One-inspired onesies would perhaps prove a little too warm for our temperate climes.

Key Pieces: The padded sneakers in a nifty window pane check would look the business teamed with a pair of jeans

Calvin Klein

A return to the nineties at Calvin Klein Collection with oversized nylon bomber jackets, baggy-er than usual trousers and over-sized suiting.

Key pieces: this beautifully cut, oversized camel coat would work perfectly with a grey, window pane check suit.
