Safari In The City

Milan has yet again been the wonderful jungle for menswear tease and tailoring. It's always so refreshing to see collections that aren't a diluted form of expression compared to ambitious womenswear. Take Cavalli, where flare and swing of the 70's is caramalised into a modern sort of sweetness. The colours of the suede suits are creamy, dusty, and sunburnt amber and rust, like antiques that have a velvet history and texture about them. Leopard print was the female trend to trek into fashion, and cavalli's male interpretation is trousers with a safari spark to them, with aboriginal graphics creating intense aesthetic. The jackets look like birds of prey that are melting into an illusion, such is the soft quality of them. The knits are just as impressive and unique, taking the drape and funnel neck to new heights, or should I say lows. They practically poncho from the neck like a thick knit waterfall, looking like an all-body scarf that cacoons. What also striked me about Cavalli's safari park was the impressive attention to accessories. The jewellery and cravats are a collection of earthly treasures, capturing bohemian slick spirit. Without doubt a highlight from Milan in my eyes.

Away from topic, I've also included a picture of me varying up my beloved parka jacket again. This time it's the turn of layers, with the hope of looking like a bohemian grunge traveller and explorer.
