Les Hommes Menswear Spring/Summer 2021 in Milan was filled with tailoring in a cinematic palette of black and white.
Designers Tom Notte and Bart Vandebosch seem to think it’s time for men to step up their dressing game. It was not a formalwear collection, but one that played with a healthy dose of clever tailoring in a cinematic palette of black and white.
Tuxedo jackets came narrowed and shortened, paired with tailored shorts, while the brand’s signature rock attitude was conveyed through accessories and details — think fingerless gloves, keychains and metal-embellished belts.
A chic version of a shawl-collared sleeveless top with a plunging V-neck was crafted from a lightweight gauze fabric for a breezy summery alternative to shirts.
This fusion of classic tailoring with sportswear and signature leather inserts from the biker world results in an elegant yet strong silhouette.
The video accompanying the presentation featured a model dancing and gesturing as a black veil undulated behind him. The simple prop stressed the airy spirit of this collection.
