The Highlights of Milan Men's Fashion Week Fall 2018

From Fendi's umbrella hats to Moschino's bondage formalwear — you'll be talking about them all.

Do head-strapped mini umbrellas call for functionality or are they a bit much? For Fall 2018, Fendi boasts all things travel friendly. Models wore two-in-one reversible ensembles while dragging aluminum hand-carry luggage—the brand’s new collaboration with Rimowa, a recent acquisition of LVMH. Naturally, an airport baggage claim set the stage. 


Jeremy Scott is not usually one to use all black colors for his colorful collections, but when he does, he goes full S&M. Models wore latex body suits, complete with leather suspenders and chains. The erotic formalwear collection had a male model walking with a long tulle trail, like a gown, while the females rocked suit dresses and devil-horned hairstyles. “People are in control of their sexuality and the way they want to look; you’re owning your own power,” Scott told Vogue Runway.


Miuccia Prada went back to the basics: black “Pocone” nylon. Only this time, the Prada signature fabric is all over the collection, repackaged as jackets, shorts, short-sleeved shirts and bucket hats. Models wore photo ID badges with their headshots as they walked in a warehouse, somewhere in the outskirts of Milan.

Though this isn't a Milan show, it's definitely one of the highlights of the week. The Russian designer showed off all his newest collaborations for Fall 2018 with brands like Adidas, Burberry, and Dr. Martens. The collection was sporty and nationalistic, in support of Russia as host for the 2018 football World Cup. Young models wore flag-motif scarves and army uniforms, and on the sportier side, full-blown Adidas logos everywhere (even shaved on a model's head).

“We riffed on sorts of multicultural references here, rebooted with a free spirit,” creative director Andreas Melbostad said to Vogue Runway. “Peru, Iceland, Africa, Eastern Europe, Navajos, Morocco, Eskimos, Afghanistan, India, you name it!” The tribal-inspired looks from the brand's fall 2018 collection poses a question similar to the one we all had with the Marc Jacobs show a while back. Are the braids and the tribal tattoos a form of cultural appropriation?
