Individuality is always a prized commodity in Milan, so it was a bit jarring to see common motifs spring up around the menswear shows during Fashion Week. Travel was a prominent theme at the runway shows of Missoni, Prada and Moncler Gamme Bleu, the latter featuring plentiful references to campsites, tarpaulins and tents, complete with a cameo from Smokey Bear. (Never let it be said that Thom Browne doesn't know how to put on a show.) Elsewhere, the distinctive personalities of individual designers and houses were in keeping with viewers' expectations, including the flamboyant streetwear of Marcelo Burlon County of Milan and clean lines of Jil Sander.
