(Relaxnews) – On Sunday, the second day of Milan men’s fashion week for the Fall-Winter 2014/15 season, the fashion world turned its attention to the latest collections from some of the biggest names in style, including Bottega Veneta, Missoni and Prada.

Bottega Veneta

The athletic silhouettes of Bottega Veneta’s runway models were exhibited in simple, often casual pieces, such as round-shouldered sweaters in warm materials and colors such as olive green, grey and sand. Among the highlights of this collection were accessories, and namely messenger bags carried in one hand at the hip, accentuating the Bottega Veneta man’s nonchalant elegance.

The Ferragamo man also highlights his athletic and slender build. The collection incorporates influences from the world of travel, combining sky blue with warm colors such as sand and ochre. The outerwear includes leather and suede jackets, warm bomber jackets and wool coats belted at the waist. In terms of prints, the collection relies heavily on stripes, whether vertical or horizontal, thin or wide.

Vivienne Westwood

Fans of the British designer may be surprised at this Fall-Winter 2014/15 collection’s austerity, which is not something typically associated with the label. Rebellious and carefree, the Vivienne Westwood man wears PVC jackets and neoprene ensembles in solid colors such as light grey, brown, sand and black. But there were a few prints as well, including psychedelic motifs and plaids worn in jeans and varsity-style jackets.

Missoni

The Missoni models in Milan fully embraced their feminine sides, wearing long hair and wool shawls in blue, rust and ochre. Stripes and ethnic prints adorn the knits in this collection, including close-fitting turtlenecks worn one on top of the other for a filled-out look.

Prada

The latest Prada collection combines different influences for a surprising result. One moment, the Prada man is bold and masculine, wearing sleeveless vests in army green or grey, belted to his torso with wide straps. The next, he is an effeminate dandy with a thin scarf tied around his neck, combining luxurious fabrics and bright colors including purple, green, red, light blue and ochre.
