Fashion Designers only VIP

The line, in navy blue, black, dark green and mustard yellow, contrasted light items and rigid structure for trousers and jeans. White T-shirts and shorts were worn with black socks.

Gianfranco Ferre used a presentation instead of a catwalk show to present smoothly cut jackets, linear overcoats and slim trousers in dark neutral Colors with skinny belts that added shine.

Ferre said the line, designed by the house's creative team, had no clear inspiration "other than man himself."

Britain's Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen also presented lines. Westwood featured vests, loose-fitting shirts and a pink tracksuit, even bringing on a dog to accompany one of her models.

McQueen looked at body definition, with collars vanishing into the body of jackets.

Milan's spring and summer 2009 menswear shows run until June 24. More than 40 designers are holding catwalk shows.
