We have come to the end of yet another Milan Fashion Week Men's and from the looks of it, it was more fashion than we could have hoped for. The past five days gave us glimpses of what to look forward to as the world gradually recovers from the pandemic. And they were generally both optimistic and celebratory at the same time.
We witnessed trends that have made its way back to the fore, accompanied by an array of shows and presentations done with new visual display methodologies. From Italian luxury fashion brand Fendi's unconventional cropped top blazer ensemble to Japanese brand JieDa's twilight lookbook showcase, Milan Fashion Week Men's spring/summer 2022 was a taste of what's to come for at least another consecutive season.
Creative director Glenn Martens presented his debut collection for Diesel through a live-streamed short film created in partnership with artist and director Frank Lebon. The sustainability-driven collection focused on upcycling and reusing dead stock fabrics, specifically in the form of denim reinterpretations.
Brands such as Prada and Etro looked to forms of escapism during these dreary times as their reference points. Prada models walked from the indoors straight to the beach, while the forest landscapes of the Scalo Farini area in Milan provided the backdrop for Etro. From Miuccia Prada’s use of bold colours translated into an array of short shorts, bucket hats and knit jumpers to Kean Etro’s upholstery-inspired patterns and sunset tones, both Italian brands redefined the meaning of outdoor explorations and hopeful times to come.
