Accessories we love from Milan Men’s Fashion Week A/W’16

Hats on!

No one can say that they didn’t spot a plethora of kitschy accessories at Gucci A/W’16, not when Alessandro Michele has offered us a gender-bending, Lurex-filled collection that was quirky and visually mind-blowing. But what we’re digging is that oversized bowler hat in a vivid shade of red. Similarly, an eye-shading tipped fedora from Bottega Veneta was spotted, oozing so much monochromatic cool in just one collection.


Neck warming additions

There are always ways to reinvent your layering game, and A/W’16 proved that you can either do it minimalistically the way Tomas Maier has in Bottega Veneta with slim, longish black scarves that tail behind you along with the wind, or Missoni’s chunky knit scarves that echo a bohemian spirit in the most opulent manner possible.


The pint-sized satchel 

We’re seeing a higher number of men’s bags that have shrunken in size this season, first at London Collections: Men and now at Milan. Prada A/W’16 collection had strong sailor sentiments, keeping their satchels narrow and fun-sized, whereas Rodolfo Paglialunga offered a more military aesthetic at Jil Sander with no-nonsense black crossbody bag held by hand.


A colour twist

It’s time to inject a dose of colour to your trusty leather oxfords (gasp). Prada’s cap-toe leather oxfords had their signature aesthetic all over in fun-loving colours, whereas Salvatore Ferragamo’s paint-splattered versions had the makings of a Jackson Pollock work of art—fret not about getting cold feet with this trend, thanks to the fur lining from Ferragamo’s oxfords.
