Corneliani fall 2013 men’s

You could just imagine that the direction backstage at Corneliani’s Milan fashion week (MFW) show had to do with strength and swagger: powering forwards, these models meant business.

According to creative director Sergio Corneliani the collection was based around a fusion of past and present, and his influences were largely grounded in art and history: a 1462 Mantegna painting, the town of Mantua, Renaissance ornamentation. And yet, while Corneliani made no specific mention of it, one couldn’t help but be struck by a tough 1960s vibe – like mod rock cleaned up and cut to a 2013 silhouette.

That sentiment came through most powerfully in the side-slicked hair and newsboy caps, turtleneck sweaters and leather bombers: you could almost see a young Michael Caine circa Get Carter giving them a nod of approval. And it didn’t matter if it was daytime’s cashmere sweaters and caps, or the more formal tailored attire, Corneliani’s fall 2013 man wasn’t just sharp, he was sharp.
