By Isla Binnie MILAN (Reuters) – Inspired by Batman, cowboys and Norman conquerors, fashion designers in Milan showed casual and vibrant outfits alongside sharp tailoring for male shoppers who are looking beyond the classic suit. Italy’s fashion capital on Saturday kicked off events on 39 catwalks spanning four days for a men’s fashion market which consultancy Bain & Co says is growing faster than womenswear globally. At Iceberg, designer Federico Curradi drew on the sporty brand’s history of using cartoon images to create clothes intended to be as suitable at the office as at a party. “The focus for me was to think about one fantastic cartoon and I thought about Bruce Wayne,” Curradi told Reuters after showing long tunic tops under mohair sweaters, blazers and bomber jackets, mostly in black and grey with flashes of red.
