Surfing in the menswear collections at Milan Men’s Fashion Week

The green room is the ultimate surfing experience, it is the inside of a barrel that is produced by a wave.

These days on the Italian runways we saw a particular interest in this theme and so many designers feature prints or imagine outfits starting from this idea of living peacefully, slowing down the time that’s passing by.

Beach boys walked the Spring Summer 2018 MSGM runway that this season was inspired by California and its tropical climate. Massimo Giorgetti imagined a sunny collection which features streetwear-ish looks referring to skating and surfing cultures: flowery shorts, huge backpacks, a memorable graffiti-sweater with was a literal color explosion and workwear inspired parkas.

Prints of palm trees, surf boards and waves were everywhere on the No.21 Spring Summer 2018 runway. Alessandro Dell’Acqua, brand’s creative director, wanted to propose a “nonchalace” moment as one of his pieces reads, far from the difficulties of our times, just thinking of a place in the sun and a vacation.
