BEAUTY: Clothing--MP Massimo Piombo

Moving on to our next stop for fashion season: Italy for Milano Moda Uomo.

When I last featured the work of designer Massimo Piombo here, the collection's silhouette was a mash up of Indian kurtas with Western blazers and jackets. And for his SS '19 collection at Milano Moda Uomo, he headed off in the same direction. An inveterate global traveler with a love for the exotic, Piombo set up a mustachioed, cowboy-adjacent character wearing black leather engineer boots in loose kurtas block-printed with Indian florals, or wearing and holding pashminas. It's kind of what summer is all about, really: vacationing in exotic locales and soaking up the beauty of another culture. I love the kurtas, and if a man in a horseshoe belt and motorcycle boots wants to wear one, more power to him!
