It is no secret that Milan is recovering from the fashion rut it’s been stuck in since the 90’s, after all there’s only so many Versace skimpy’s a guy can handle and Fendi Baguette bags a girl can own! Perhaps this is why the Milan fashion scene has followed in London’s footsteps by becoming increasingly keen to push young talent. Stella Jean is one of the big new names in Womenswear and as Mens fashion month drew to a close, it seemed there was at least one very promising name; MSGM. Until SS14 MSGM was a little known brand started by salesman turned fashion designer Massimo Giorgetti. Over the past few season MSGM has never failed to deliver colour, print and the overall wearability factor in both women and menswear. For me, the menswear has been a highlight of this SS15 season, showing diverse silhouettes with a cool, street aesthetic – the wow factor as well as the wearability factor. Having just released their women’s pre SS15 collection also (which in my opinion is simply one of the best collections out there); Milan have indeed supplied the goods. As a girl, I definitely want to be an MSGM girl and the guys? Well I wouldn’t mind dating one!

‘I heart classics’ – We all know no one loves a classic like Burberry. At the same time no one loves innovation and technology like than Burberry; which is why Christopher Bailey has been fusing the two together for a few seasons now, so for AW13 whats new?
To start with, there were no holograms, rain or snow showers nor was there a celeb packed front row to entertain. The Burberry man had calmed down somewhat, gone back to basics or, in Burberry’s words Classics. All of the main outerwear was on show, from cabin to utility coats, donkey jackets and of course the legendary trench. Yes there was innovation seen through the use of materials and motifs, but they were subtle and classier than previous seasons. Heart motifs adorned shirts, studs decorated shoes and my personal favourite animal print covered everything from cabin coats to holdalls! It was another strong collection from Mr Bailey a quirky twist on the classics, classic Burberry.
I’d have a Burberry man any day!
