Touch down in Milan

So it begins - aptly with the famous ticket shot institutionalised by Mr Fury! After a lovely - if roasting - sojourn in Florence I've just touched down in Milan ready for the onslaught of moda masculino. After the pace of Pitti - where one can idly wander from stand to stand and attend just two to three shows a day - Milan's timetable is starting to look even more like some kind of perverse endurance test; sweltering heat, packed schedule, anarchic taxi system...

It's set to be an interesting few days - as much due to the political maneuverings behind the scenes as the turns on the catwalk. What will Jil Sander drop at her grand return? How naked will the Dsquared2 boys be? And finally - and most importantly - just what does Miuccia Prada have up her sleeve for this season?
