MILAN WITH TEO VAN DEN BROEKE

As Fashion Week travels to Milan, we see classic clean tailoring turn to loose-fitting silhouettes. Italians have mastered the art of 'smart casual', opting for earthy tones paired with a simple tee. An expert in the fields of men’s fashion, Teo van den Broeke, Style and Grooming Director of British GQ, gives us a glimpse into where he’ll be visiting and what he'll be wearing to the shows.

Milan is full of art, do you get a chance to visit any galleries?

I don’t get much time to engage with culture when I’m in Milan, but The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci is absolutely incredible, and the La Scala is beautiful.

Where do you stay when you visit Milan?

I love to stay at the Grand Hotel et de Milan when we’re in town, but the Armani Hotel is also great.

What's your favourite place in the city?

Strangely I love Milano Centrale, the old Mussolini-era train station. It’s a towering historical building that looks like it’s been hewn straight out of stone.

Where do you like to eat?

I have a few favourite restaurants in Milan. They all begin with the letter ‘b’. Bebel’s, Bagutta and Bice. They’re all very traditional Italian and all serve incredible Tagliata di Manzo.

LONDON WITH DONNA WALLACE

Next, Fashion Week heads to London, where statement accessories rule the roost. Opt for understated pastels and subtle layering, then add colourful sunglasses to finish off your look. Queen of adornments, Donna Wallace, Accessories Editor at Elle UK, shows us her top picks for London Fashion Week.

What's you're go-to hotel in London?

The Shangri-La at the Shard for the insane views which, 34 floors up, are unmatched anywhere else in this city. You can bathe viewing the clouds in the sky/shower looking out across the city with no chance of being overlooked.
Not for those with vertigo for obvious reasons.

What do you like to do after a long day at the LFW shows?

I always try to visit Renoir Cinema at The Brunswick Centre. I love how tucked away it is in the heart of the city and it always has an intelligent choice of films.

Where will you go for dinner?

I'll definitely head to the original Dinings in Marylebone. The venue is small, very intimate and everyone is always greeted with warmth. It has the most delicious Sushi plus the vegetarian versions are every bit as considered as the traditional fish ones.

Where do you go to escape the hustle and bustle of the city?

The Barbican gardens in the summer. The Brutalist architecture doesn't give any clue as to what's hidden inside. Like a tropical greenhouse with expansive split levels. A joy to see so much lush vegetation in the city centre.

NEW YORK WITH LISA ARMSTRONG

The first stop on our Fashion Week journey is New York. Known for its effortless style, New York is the home of infinitely wearable and equally chic attire. Award-winning and well-established Head of Fashion & Style at The Daily Telegraph, Lisa Armstrong, takes us through her must-haves for the 'Big Apple'.

Do you have a favourite restaurant?

Much talk on The Telegraph Fashion desk is where to get the best pre-show bagels in New York. Tomkins Square Bagels in the East Village is always one that tops the charts (35 different cream cheese flavours) as well as Kossar’s on the Lower East Side, with many filling options besides cream cheese. Oh and 'flagel' is a go for the carb conscious – a flatter, option with more surface area for spreads.

Where do you stay when you're in New York?

The Bowery Hotel has a pretty courtyard out the back making it perfect for tea or elevenses.

What's your favourite place to let your hair down?

Supper or a drink at the historic Birdland Jazz Club is a must. It's surprisingly affordable and you’ll be accompanied by world-class musicians from all over.

Where do you go for history?

My favourite museum is The Tenement Museum. It’s a tall skinny turn of the century house on the Lower East Side that was home to a successful wave of immigrants and was left derelict for years until the charity acquired it and reinstated those tiny apartments exactly as they would have been in the 1900s, complete with furniture and even some clothes. It’s domestic and social history at its most intimate. The tour guides are knowledgeable and the groups are small.

Afterwards, go and eat at nearby Katz Deli where Sally educated Harry about a few essential facts of life in one of the most famous scenes in movie history.
