BEAUTY: Clothing--Milano Moda Uomo Misc. SS '15

Well, we have wrapepd up this year's Milano Moda Uomo for Spring Summer 2015 and here are a few highlights...

There are usually some good summer shoes to be seen here and there at the SS collections, but it seemed there was a plethora, more than usual, of fantastic sandals and versions thereof...

Iceberg showed some really fun strappy numbers in orange, blue, white, and aged leather!

Angela Missoni erected a geodesic domed yurt decorated with dream catchers for her sexy hippies to saunter through. The footwear of choice there was a multi-colored woven huarache, a type of shoe from Pre-Columbian Mexico!

The classic Missoni pattern seems to lend itself to the idea of South American clothing perfectly...

Ferragamo was founded by shoe maker Salvatore Ferragamo, so it makes sense that Massimiliano Giornetti, menswear designer for Ferragamo, would riff on classic shoe styles for summer sandals. I love how these look like they started out as tasseled and fringed brogues before having their fronts, backs, and sides lopped off!

And Giornetti created a fun little detail for the collection: a giraffe print that, combined with the cut of the clothing, suggests a safari in the 1950s!

And finally, Versace, whose clothing is never attractive to me, showed some really fun footwear: handpainted lace ups, stroppy sandals that look like twisted cloth, Gladiator sandals, and a pink suede lace up with cut out sides, suggesting a sandal more than being one!

Now on to some clothes! There was a lovely faded theme popping up at Fendi... denim in the collection was so faded, it simply read as the texture of a cotton cloud...

...and at Bottega Veneta, sweaters were beyond faded, they were bleached and aged by the elements, giving these pieces a wistful, timeworn sense.
