MILAN, June 23 — Menswear designers have been busy all weekend laying down the next season’s big trends in Milan, but we’ve seen some strong male beauty looks to compete with the fashions on show. Here are three of the strongest.

Body art

The anarchistic vibe at fashion’s favourite wild child Vivienne Westwood’s show was exacerbated by the bold body art on show. From chest slogans to sleeves, to covered-up legs, models sported ensembles designed to show off their tattoos and body art. Ink was also one of the main accessories over at Philipp Plein’s hip-hop-inspired collection, displayed under string vests and low-necked tees for a macho urban aesthetic.

Seventies hair

Gucci models sported slightly long, mussed-up hair that matched the 1970s vibe of the show with long, flicky bangs pulled apart to showcase their coloured spectacle lenses. Prada was also rocking the look, with hair slightly long and shaggy on top, while Missoni paid homage to the decade by sending models down the runway with dyed afro hairstyles and unruly curls.

All-American

Meanwhile the beauty aesthetic was squeaky clean at Calvin Klein, where hair was either cropped short or slicked neatly over in a dapper side part. Ralph Lauren adopted a similar all-American approach, with models kept clean-shaven and baby smooth. — AFP/Relaxnews
