milan mens FW12 shoes
Images of FW12 menswear from Milan Fashion Week are pouring in from all over the internet and I for one am chomping at the bit waiting for the day when I get to see some of these designs up close and personal. Good accessories can make or break a show and two collections whose footwear not to mention hosiery stood out for FW12 were that of DOLCE & GABBANA (above) and PRADA.
There was a lot of variety in the footwear presented at DOLCE & GABBANA this season, from studs to suede to ornate slippers. The embroidered socks are my personal favorite and I can totally envision a DIY project inspired by these in the future.
PRADA FW12 had a very militaristic, super-villain vibe going on in the clothing and was styled with some very quirky shoes. I love the lace-ups with the contrasting rubber, almost like those slip on covers your grandfather wore in the spring so his good leather shoes didn't get ruined in the mud & rain. And the floral leather details really drew your attention, especially when worn with the calf high patterned socks.
