MILAN • On the catwalk of Milan's menswear week, a high-flying plane took off once more, while a younger jet set made a soft landing.
Last Saturday, iconic supermodel Naomi Campbell, 48, injected Hollywood, wearing a classic striped suit with a neatly designed bow tie that adorns her white shirt in the Dolce & Gabbana (D & G) show.
Versace also opted for full star power, but much younger, leading with model Bella Hadid.
The D & G catwalk celebrated love in all shapes and sizes, sending women and men down the ramp in dazzling colors.
Italian actress Monica Bellucci showed a three-piece black suit with wide lapel The younger models were a heartbeat of the millennial generation, a target group for D & G, which includes the actor Cameron Dallas, the sintratista Chinese Karry Wang and Kailand Wonder, son of American music legend Stevie Wonder.
Versace sent models without fit with the snake motif characteristic of the brand, as well as combinations of green and fluorescent pink from head to toe.
Donatella Versace said the collection supplied three types of men: a "street style" for stars, another for dandies and a third for "leaders".
"The Versace man is not ordinary, he is seen and spoken," he added.
Milan will exhibit 28 prêt-à-porter collections for the spring and summer season of 2019. Among the main Italian names are Prada and Giorgio Armani. The foreign contingent includes the British Stella McCartney, the Canadian Dsquared2 and the German Philipp Plein.
