The long-awaited Milan Fashion Week reached its end yesterday, along with the debut of a variety of men’s fashion trends for the Autumn-Winter 2017/2018 season. GuidoMaggi ambassador, Canadian fashion blogger Kish Raveendran, who recently attended fashion weeks in both Florence and London, visited the GuidoMaggi showroom in the historic Brera district to offer elevator shoe styling advice to GuidoMaggi’s unique clientele.
Pitti Immagine Uomo passed the baton to Milan Fashion Week, and what an exciting week it was. From January 13-17, thousands of stylish men and fashion insiders will witness an explosive range of clothing onwww. The task of opening the week’s events fell on Ermenegildo Zegna, and will continue on with Diesel, which is slated to kick off the second day of the festival. Set to follow will be Moncler, Dsquared2, and classic labels like Emporio Armani, Versace, Missoni, Etro and Prada. Louis Vuitton, also present, has recently opened its first pop-up store, which showcases the new Spring/Summer 2017 collection, with signed pieces by artistic director Kim Jones. The new collection, which is inspired by African art and the Chapman brothers, can be found in Milan’s Fiori Chiari, just a few steps from GuidoMaggi’s own elevator shoe showroom.
By the looks of the runway, stylish men next winter will be dressed in clothing and accessories boasting tailoring inspired by the past, particularly the 40s and 50s, though mixed with a modern, contemporary style. From warm knit sweaters in V-neck and turtleneck styles, to cashmere scarves, classic-cut trousers with an elastic ankle, and two-button jackets in velvet monochrome, the runways showcased a wide variety.
Milan Fashion Week will appeal to the modern, sophisticated man able to mix traditional tailored items with more casual pieces and a hint of retro. This aesthetic can be seen in leather items like jackets and vests, slimfit trousers in shiny leather, mesh cashmere and waterproof coats in full grain, vegetable tanned leather.

GuidoMaggi ambassador Kish Raveendran sported new elevator shoes from the brand’s latest collection, including sneakers made from exotic leather and shiny ribbed rubber soles. The model, named the “Sloane Square”, was handcrafted in Italy, and boasts a glossy outer that is as versatile as it is stylish. Like all of GuidoMaggi’s luxury elevator shoes, the “Sloane Square” was constructed with a fine attention to detail, extreme comfort and a fashion-forward design, allowing for a height increase of several inches, all while remaining stylish as ever.
The focus now is on Paris fashion week, scheduled through January 22. GuidoMaggi will see you there!
