Sometimes discussing the same well-cut suits over and over gets boring, so fashion critics got creative with their writeups from the men’s shows in Milan.
Tim Blanks for style.com. It’s a tough trade-off though: rock-hard thighs or picking up some of Judge Sheindlin’s one liners.

Bonus: more DSquared2 snark from Charlie Porter, writing for the Financial Times.
DSquared2 was so traumatic, I’ll just type what happened: Curtains pulled back to reveal a tropical scene with a crashed wartime plane, overgrown with plants; centre stage was a waterfall, underneath which stood a model in tight white swim briefs, presumably meant to be a pilot coping with the traumas of war by acting sexy. What followed was a procession of the sort of clothes you’d expect to see on a budget airline flight back from Majorca, from white trousers cropped mid-calf to vests.
A condescending section of Cathy Horyn’s review for the New York Times, which none of those apparently terrible “junior editors” will bother to read because they’re all to busy Instagramming photos of their cats or something, am I right?

Writing for NowFashion, Sofia Celeste could have just run with the “indoor beach” metaphor, but no.
