Casual fashion becomes sporty and chic

23 . 06 . 2018 by Laura Tortora, Redazione
Casual fashion focuses on sport, through  a super cool twist, among a mix and match of prints and colours and unexpected combinations. But it also becomes refined, thanks to a minimalist approach. These are the main trends of casual wear emerged at the recently concluded Milan Men’s Fashion Week.
Here are the main trends that designers – from the biggest and most acclaimed ones to the youngest and most loved by urban tribes – brought to the Spring Summer 2019 Men’s runaways.
SPORTS UNIFORMS BECOME COOL

Looks are inspired by the uniforms of basketball players and the world of football, and everything is revisited with innovative cuts and bright colours. There is no shortage of prints that give the outfits that touch of ‘holiday mood’, as shown by the MSGM outfits; Marni, on the other hand, creates a decidedly more metropolitan sporty style.

MIX AND MATCH AND COLOURS, THE NEW DIKTAT

Casual style is invaded by creativity and focus on contrasts and colours. Dsquared2 offers a look with a military flavour, with soft jackets combined with camouflage pants and sports accessories; colourful outfits for Prada, in delicate pastel tones; Fendi instead focuses on strong prints and nuances, with T-shirts holding messages.

A TOUCH OF MINIMALISM

‘Simplicity is the key note of all true elegance’ said the great Coco Chanel, and this is a valid rule today, also for men’s fashion. Fashion designers know it well, and along with the most creative proposals, presented very refined and simple outfits. Dolce & Gabbana focuses on a single colour, with a tight-fitting V-neck fine knit and tapered trousers; a totally different choice for Canali that opts for the two trendiest colours of the season: pink and blue; Just Cavalli, on the other hand, proposes a key element: light denim, in total look; unique outfits for N°21 that presents trendy looks consisting of classic shorts, shirts and trench coats.
