Milan, Italy – Ports 1961 returned to the catwalks for the presentation of its new Fall/Winter 2014 collection. This comes after a two or three seasons in which the house opted for more intimate happenings as a way to show its work.
The new collection has artistic director Ian Hylton hitting all the right notes. He has created silhouettes composed of trousers that are either slim and cut above the ankle, and other trousers that are long and with generous volume. The dress shirts feature Italian collars wide other less formal shirts have short sleeves.
Gray is an important color in the collection. And it never looks as good as when Hylton uses it in the window pane, wool, and slimly cut double-breasted suit.
Hylton revisits the cape trend, which rose to popularity in last year’s fall winter collection. In addition the burgundy – another very popular staples in today’s collections – is also very present in the collection. He also creates lots of eyewear and brilliant bags to accompany the Ports 1961 man throughout his activities.
