Pitti Uomo 101, the renowned men’s fashion trade fair in Florence, Italy, kickstarted the proceeding for the Milan Fashion Week Men’s Fall-Winter 2022 collection. While the fair was a remarkable success, the main event, Milan Fashion week, saw several exciting moments.
Milan Fashion Week Men’s ran from January 15 through 17, and saw several notable Houses showcase their Men’s collection for Fall-Winter 2022. Several important brands were absent owing to COVID-19, including Giorgio Armani, Emporio Armani, Gucci, MSGM and JW Anderson.
However, on the upside Fendi, Prada, Ermenegildo Zegna and Dolce & Gabbana were clear and present. And disappoint, they did not.
The iconic Fendi codes were evident at the House’s show and were further elevated by “an experimental sartorial approach and a deep, captivating palette,” according to the brand’s Instagram post.
German-Swiss brand Philipp Plein, meanwhile, revealed its "LIL MONSTER$” collection at a show in Porta Romana. As part of his new design vision, Plien is looking back at old video game characters as inspiration. The brand also revealed that it will be part of the Art Basel in Miami in December.
Another heavyweight at the fashion week was Prada. The runway saw actor Kyle MacLachlan open the show in a dark trench-coat, with shimmering baby blue trousers for contrast. This was followed by a sophisticated collection with a host of suits and trench coat silhouettes. The show was closed by actor Jeff Goldblum walking the ramp in a dark trench-coat with fur accents.
Finally, Dolce & Gabbana didn’t disappoint with its high-octane design that were edgy, yet elegant in their approach. However, despite that they were able to bring a sense of theatre to the proceedings.
All-in-all, and despite some absentees, the Milan Fashion Week Men’s was a stunning success.
