Millennials reign supreme at Dolce & Gabbana latest offering during Milan Mens Fashion Week with Christian Combs opening the show. Christian the spitting image of a younger Sean Combs hit the runway wearing a gold brocaded tailcoat with slim pant and velvet embroidered logo loafers for the collection named ” King’s Angles”.
Dolce & Gabbana’s marketing team is on top of their game with incorporating young social media standouts such as Jack Mardsen the son of actor James Mardsen . Jack walked the runway in a plush purple and red robe over a T’shirt, track pants and all white sneakers with writing on them .

Even though its mens fashion week in Milan, the ladies are not letting the guys have all the catwalk fun ! Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid hit the Dsquared FALL 2018 runway with vigor.! Kendall looked next level Boho Chic in this hooded fur coat paired with a floor length dress cut in multiple layers and prints. The shoes were western inspired laser cut open toe booties ! So bomb !
DONATELLA AND 2 CHAINZ
Hair Weave Killer a.k.a. 2 Chainz was front row at Versace Mens Fall 2018 runway show this year not only as a guest but as a collaborator . Creative Director Donetella Versace teamed up with the hip star to collab on a line of chunky sneakers named Verscae x Chain Reaction . The sneakers feature mis matched color schemes blended with bold prints and textures drawn from the ready to wear collection. The Versace x Chain reaction sneakers are expected to drop in two months.
I personally have not fallen in love with the chunky sneaker trend. They just look weird to me. More and more brands are showing offerings such as Balenciaga , Louis Vuitton, Yeezy and more. Will you buy into the chunky sneaker trend ? Let me know in the comments below !
