INDICE DE GALERIAS
MILAN (AP) — The Calvin Klein man for next summer is an urban dreamer, contemplating his horizons and even the cosmos.
The collection for next summer presented Sunday on the second day of Milan Fashion Week keeps men in their comfort zone, with a solid focus on basics in reassuring blues. There are bomber jackets, suits with cuffed pants and classic shirts.
Designer Italo Zucchelli offers up monochromatic looks for next summer in blues: wake-up royal, soothing sky and down-to-business Navy. Classic double-pocket snap-close shirts are paired with same-color pants that cuff at the ankle. They in turn are worn with a shoe of the matching color and same-color socks — none of the black socks seen on other runways.
Bomber jackets come in white with classic blue vertical stripes, perfect for a day at the ballpark.
On the more daring end of the spectrum, sweatshirts are made of a funky mix of fabrics: One had a neoprene effect, another was chunky knit and finally there were cotton panels. Together, they create a harmonious clash fitting of the heavy metal riffs that down along the runway.
Wrapping up the look: a series of sloping shoulder shirts and sweatshirts with prints of the sky in all its glorious phases; a daytime blue sky filled with fluffy clouds, another at sunset and a star-filled night.
Each includes a door-shaped panel. Some show another sky — it’s unclear whether it’s a forecast or the past. Another is dark, and open for interpretation.
The collection is for the urban dweller, one whose view of the sky may be otherwise crowded by buildings. He of course would have little need for shorts as active-wear, and there are none in this collection.
