Milan Vukmirovic presented his Autumn Winter 2017/18 collection for PORTS 1961 during Milan Fashion Week. Inspired by the early Nineties, the energy of the London scene, and the music and images of that time, the new collection called Army Of Love, prints the word love in English, Arabic, French and Russian.
Ports 1961 men are armed for whatever the day brings. In the city, they sport protective clothing inspired by urban work wear. Reflective bands stripe parkas borrowed from construction sites, bombers are reversible, coats have slit sleeves, blousons are studded with buckles and harness straps, trousers are piped, sweaters are chunky, hoods removable and shirtfronts quilted. The cuts are clean, ample, transformable and efficient. The wardrobe is assertive, right down to its colors. Two-toned silhouettes, blocked in contrasting shades of black, grey, red and even orange or red, are infused with buoyant energy. Stripes give the collection its tempo. There’s also the camouflage print motif Milan Vukmirovic has loved forever. Otherwise, materials are primarily sober, solid and thick, often with raw edging. Robust cotton canvas, deep diagonal twills, dense fleece and real nylon underscore the virility of this chic sportswear offering. But for all its masculinity, the collection has lots of charm and heart. The white shirt – a house icon – is embellished with strategically placed red embroidery representing that vital organ, which sits precisely over the breast of young love warriors in search of emotional rescue. – from PORTS 1961
