MILAN (AP) - This is the season of renewal, with new faces at some of Milan's top fashion brands.

New creative directors made their debuts Sunday during the second day of Milan Fashion Week at Salvatore Ferragamo and Dirk Bikkembergs, a day after Marni set off in a new direction.

Roberto Cavalli and Brioni, meanwhile, took a runway break this season as they worked out what their future creative directions would be after parting ways with their stylists.

Here are some highlights of menswear previews for next fall and winter on Sunday, the second day of Milan Fashion Week.
