Here are six talking points from the Ports 1961 show in Milan this week.

1. The Autumn/Winter 2017 menswear collection from Ports 1961 is named ‘Army of Love’, and uses the Chinese and Japanese character for ‘Love’, which happen to be identical in both languages. The word for ‘Love’ also appears in Arabic, French, Russian and English.
