Vivienne Westwood's menswear collection was a hit at Milan Menswear Fashion Week yesterday (16.01.11).

The British designer managed to bring a touch of fun to the showcase as she sent her male models - wearing the brand's Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 designs - down the catwalk sporting slicked back hair and crimson lipstick.

The streamlined collection included checks, 50s tailoring, patterned knits and elaborate prints.

Marni and Emporio Armani also showcased their collections yesterday while Missoni focused on bright colours and vivid prints, with an eye-catching raincoat one of the highlights.

BURBERRY PRORSUM and Roberto Cavalli opened Milan Menswear Fashion Week on Saturday (15.01.11) with Dolce & Gabbana using the colour red to brighten up their designs.

Milan will finish today (17.01.11) with shows by Gucci, Versace and Pringle of Scotland but all eyes will be on Sarah Burton as she shows her second Alexander McQueen men's range after enjoying rave reviews last year.

Paris Menswear Fashion Week will kick off on Wednesday (19.01.11) with the Thierry Mugler show where Lady GaGa has been confirmed as "musical director".
