Dolce & Gabbana's Fall 2014 Menswear runway show in Milan was inspired by Norman Kings in Sicily during the 11th century. Male models walked down the runway with crowns, scarves, gloves, coats and snoods studded with crystals to resemble crown jewels. Some jumpers and coats had prints of the Sicilian kings, knights, saints and cathedrals. It was overall, a beautiful, artistic direction to take paying homage to forgotten Kings and history of the great Roman empire.

Lovely, poetic history you can literally wear on your sleeves, hands, head and around your neck. We love the jewel studded and gold embroidery detail on the leather gloves.

Shearling, as mentioned before in previous posts seem to be making a return to the runway this Fall 2014. This elaborately print knight armor shearling lined coat has to be one of Fall 2014's most iconic mens' outerwear from Dolce & Gabbana.

Aren't we all saints and sinners at the same time? Try as hard as we may, we still are not able to resist the charm of this religious-ridden printed suit.

Natural materials made from the oldest form of clothing material - animal skins bring out the prowess of a raw and rugged man. The all-over crystal embellishments resembles a royal chain-mail fit for a king to wear when he goes out to war.

Runway statement - This comfy grey head snood cleverly studded with black crystals resembles a medieval knight's mail coif or mail hood. The blend of old and new melds together perfectly from top to bottom in a uniform grey colour except for the bright pop of blue from the leather high-top sneakers which add a touch of funk to this elegant and out-of-this-world menswear look for fall.
