Fashions from the Moschino men's ready to wear fashion show in Milan.

Offering the sartorial equivalent of a “staycation,” some fall collections dealt with the glum reality by heading the other direction. Gucci creative director Frida Giannini set the way-back machine for the 1980s — the skinny ties, black and white geometric patterns and bright purples and electric blues made the House of Gucci seem like the luxury-brand equivalent of Benjamin Button, getting younger as it ages. Moschino and Dsquared both screen-printed boutonnieres onto lapels — bright red blooms at Dsquared and white roses at Moschino —  that took the photo-realistic printing a step further and created the jacket lapels  that graced a sport coat. Another model ambled by wearing a navy blue pullover sweater with  a pen and glasses woven into the nonexistent breast pocket.<br>
