Velvet Dandies Take Over Milan’s Runways


Did you get lost in all that black at Milan? Then perhaps you missed the comeback of a material best suited for the Chuck Basses of our lives: velvet, and its even softer cousin, velour. Salvatore Ferragamo and Dolce & Gabbana showed fuzzy jackets and blazers in brighter-than-bright colors. Burberry and Gucci did just the opposite, showcasing head-to-toe velvet in natural hues. And Giorgio Armani went for a velvet revolution: Both his collections had velour on just about everything, from green pants to gray vests to tracksuits.
