I find it interesting to try to identify the IT-PIECES and the key items that the fashion collections have in common. On the other hand I always find that it is equally interesting to look for the IT-TRENDS for the following season.
One of the main trends I noticed while surfing through all London and Milan fall winter 2014 fashion shows was the presence of belted coats for every kind of taste. From the very classic taste of Canali and Giorgio Armani to the colorful versions of Roberto Cavalli and Salvatore Ferragamo, from the modern take by Christopher Kane, Daks, Neil Barrett to the ever stylish leather (see: Fendi) and tartan (see: Bottega Veneta).

There’s anyway a second style trend I noticed during London and Milan fall winter 2014 fashion shows and that is the 3 pieces suit. About one season ago I started to notice in women’s fashion the trend of not going for separates anymore, so I guess the 3 pieces suit should be the male version of that. I have always figured out such kind of men’s suits as something very retro fashion but I was obviously wrong. In fact that trend doubtless is fresh, vibrant and definitively modern – the Richard James take on that trend really says it all. Old? Absolutely not!
