Purple is not just one colour but a whole spectrum of nuances, and the runways of summer 2023 menswear showcased them all. From the dark shades of ripe grapes to bright periwinkle, up to the softest lilac, wisteria and mauve. This is a palette that caters for the tastes of each and every stylist and for the desire of men who appreciate outlooks that make a statement. For Dolce & Gabbana, intense purple is the star of casual garments, such as the crew-neck T-shirts, it becomes bright and light for the slim-fit silk shirt with concealed front buttoning, and reaches its peak, full and brilliant, in the classic-tailored double-breasted suit with a six-button fastening. Home Plissé Issey Miyake chooses purple for his suit made from recycled polyester with an unstructured design, while Philipp Plein makes it flourish - it must be said! - in the single-breasted two-button blazer made in a perfect nuance of lilac.
