DSQUARED2 AUTUMN WINTER 2022 MENSWEAR COLLECTION

DSQUARED2 AUTUMN WINTER 2022 MENSWEAR COLLECTION

Fashion Week Time to open the door, leave it all behind, and go on a trip. The Dsquared2 guys of Fall Winter 2022 are seeking to connect with their true love, mother nature. After two years dressing at home, Dsquared2 makes a grand return to the runway for the men’s collection showtime under the lights.     #D2Hi_king plays on words—get high on life and rule the world as you discover it one mountain at a time. These travellers pick up pieces on their exploration mission. Heaping on layers, colours and patterns to their looks, there’s a blanket that transforms into a coat draped over a shoulder, a kilt overskirt looped around jeans, and a backpack co-created with heritage Italian outdoor accessories brand Invicta—kitted out with a metal drinking cup and a teddy bear.     The first look is the collection’s style postcard. A sleeping bag padded coat is wrapped over a boxy striped knit, a check flannel shirt, kilt and furry retro-stye Alpine boots. The rest of the line-up is Dsquared2 DNA filtered through outdoorsy, colourful and luxury pieces.     Outerwear is built for high profile silhouettes and statements. Nylon puffers in amber, blue or red have cooling vents for air flow, by zipping off at the arms and at the back. Padded red-and-black square shaped coats with outside pockets have graphic logos and open at the sides so the wearer can access pant pockets. A puffer is cropped in a bolero style to be worn over the top of a winter coat. A taffeta nylon windbreaker is cropped to hood and arms, layered over a wool jacket. Shearlings are embroidered with three-dimensional florals in crystals and sequins. Tech fabric windbreakers have matching pants. Argyle quilted anoraks feature carabiner and hiking cord closures.     A faux soft leather effect finishes quilted vests and shorts. Rubber parkas and rubberized camouflage pants are paired with gaiters—waterproof leg protectors, and maxi shearling lined shirts. Roadie, the pant cut of the season is a straight, loose fit in cord and denim with multiple utility pockets. The adventurer’s wardrobe also features post-slopes wear. Velvet jackets in dusty pink, a corduroy jacket with elbow patches and a windbreaker coated in a wash of sequins. Invicta Dsquared2 collab teddy sweatshirts combine the brand’s logos of the maple leaf and the ‘I’ symbol of Invicta. Knits are boxy with folksy designs or stripes.     Boots and accessories are inspired by gear for fly fishing, expeditions up icy mountains, or hanging on a line between rocks. Suede duckboots, technical hiking boots fitted with crampons, backpacks embroidered with patches and detailed with carabiners, and harnesses are meant to be worn over the body. And for after hours in the log cabin, fluffy mohair socks and clogs. Time to open the door, leave it all behind, and go on a trip.

 Lanvin Invites Iconic DC Characters Batman and Catwoman to Take Over Fashion House for Summer 2022 Season

Lanvin Invites Iconic DC Characters Batman and Catwoman to Take Over Fashion House for Summer 2022 Season

Fashion Fascinated by the comics and their emblematic characters from a young age, Bruno Sialelli has invited DC’s Batman and Catwoman to playfully take over the fashion house’s refined world.     A large section of the collection is dedicated to these two super heroes. Their faces appear on the label’s signature asymmetric shirt, the metal mesh dresses and the reversible teddy jacket already adopted by Offset.     By making Maison Lanvin their home, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC are soaking up the luxury and sophistication infinitely reinvented in the spirit of Jeanne Lanvin’s designs. Bruno Salielli is introducing these two American comic book legends to the precious refinement of the finest dyes and materials.     The brilliant colours of DC Comics – blue and purple - flourish freely without ever obliterating Lanvin’s delicate daisies. Shoulder lines are bolder and more comfortable, amplifying the cut of Bruno Salielli’s men’s and women’s clothes.     This elegant ease combines precious fabrics like satin and fine wool with flowing shapes. Accessories also take on saturated colours and Art Deco lines in a Gotham City style; the iconic Curbs sneakers are built like the inevitable Batmobile which also lends its flamboyant lines to a minaudière.     The faces of Catwoman and Batman also appear on a few bags, jazzing up the graceful lines of the label’s leather goods.     The light tone of the world of DC Comics makes a perfectly successful foray into the traditions started by Jeanne Lanvin.     The collection will be available online and in stores from early March, just in time for the release of the highly anticipated film “The Batman,” releasing in March theaters in North America March 4, 2022 and internationally beginning 2 March 2022; it will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.

New G-Star RAW campaign shows The Rhythm of Denim through immersive dance performance

Fashion Following on from their latest G-Star RAW x Snoop Dogg campaign, G-Star is now showing a different side to the brand with The Rhythm of Denim. Inspired by the urban tap movement that is making waves worldwide. The Rhythm of Denim captures an artistic translation between two world class tap dancers. Expressing themselves without the use of language. With dance as a dialogue and denim as their uniform. Creating a bold, immersive experience for the viewer. Emphasis is placed on the artistic side of G-Star. With the high production performance c Tapping into 2022.     World Tap Champion, Kamira Samuel and first-class Broadway performer, Lee Howard. Each Tap dance was born in the early 19th century, shaping a style of communication between people. With a powerful part to play in the Roaring Twenties, the dynamic art form grew so popular, it took center stage at Broadway shows in New York. Fast forward to 2022 and tap is making a modern revival across the globe. But this time, it’s been remixed on the streets. An urban dance style has manifested, with a crossover of tap and break dance forming. Rewinding back to the place where denim first became the ultimate fabric for self-expression. And serving as the primary inspiration for the new G-Star campaign.     World Champion Tap Dancers: The full denim styles were brought to life by two world-class tap dancers - dance movement showcases the premium, multi-functional looks from their latest Hardcore denim collection. Jack Evans choreographed the tap dance, creating the perfect synergy of dance, music and denim.     “Tap dance is so often used as a gimmick. A flash, polished accessory. The simple premise of two characters in separate locations communicating transcendently through rhythm gives a contemporary lens for us to view tap dance in its rawest, most natural form.” – Jack Evans, Choreographer     The Rhythm of Denim campaign will launch January 12th, 2022 on g-star.com.

ETRO MEN’S FALL & WINTER 2022/23 COLLECTION
1964

ETRO MEN’S FALL & WINTER 2022/23 COLLECTION

Fashion Week This show has been announced by an army of books. Little books: all different but part of a small library, therefore united by a subtle, present and persisting, even though not necessarily perceptible or evident, thread. Slim or full-bodied tomes, designed to sit in a pocket, and travel with the reader. Tomes that disclose journeys of emotions and knowledge.     This show, today, takes place in the crisp January light, in a place of knowledge. A place where students begin a journey towards unfathomed and unexplored destinations, at once distant and reachable. The collection itself is a journey: sidereal and Nordic, crystalline and vibrant, undertaken by a platoon of young men in the making, who face the adventure of life with a book in their pocket.     A new mental order can be felt, as crisp as the January light. The journey, whether it is knowledge or adventure, requires a map and a map requires clarity, which is not about being schematic but about being lucid. The collection is clear in the overlapping and accumulation of different signs: North stars and anchors, winter sea and mountains, wolves and roses. An amalgam that, like a small library, is united by a thin thread: the will and vision of its author, Kean Etro. In this new feeling, even paisley finds a geometric dimension, while the exercise of dressing well regains importance.     Clarity is in the rhythm of shapes, colors, and themes; in the overall, lively linearity. The soft and neat silhouette is a sum of full colors arranged in monochromatic compositions: icy shades of gray and cobalt blue, intense tones of purple, forest green and orange, bright touches of red, electric blue, hints of mustard. Graphic black and white works as a side note. Materials are dense and tactile: wool, velvet, jacquard silk, rubber. The layered and clean silhouette is a sum of archetypal garments, seen through the Etro lens: the coat, the gardening overcoat, the pullover meant as outerwear, the caftan, the duvet, the jacket, the printed shirt, the sweater with a slogan that’s a calembour. The wit of the Etro language follows this new order and cleanliness, too: the rose is scholastically declined as an Ancient Latin word on shirts and linings, or is presented in a botanical and stylized form; the wolf, a species whose conservation Etro has been committed to since 2020 in cooperation with WWF, is an inlay or jacquard that emphasizes the Nordic and sidereal path. Embossed crystal patterns and white interruptions create surprising effects on the surfaces. Cartoon sneakers and classic lace-ups, at the feet, seal the face-off of youth and adulthood.

FENDI Men’s Fall/Winter 2022-2023 Collection
1963

FENDI Men’s Fall/Winter 2022-2023 Collection

Fashion Week Thrusting old world elegance into the New Roaring Twenties, the FENDI Fall/Winter 2022-23 collection designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi is a treasure trove of future heirlooms - reimagining a gentleman's wardrobe for a neo-dandy riff onperennial classics.     Twisting and turning sartorial tropes, formality is disrupted in playful gestures that break the boundaries of archetype. Shades of black and cream, burgundy, raspberry, mocha, taupe and white form a rich, understated palette for tonal plays of precious texture and bold graphic statements. Traditional fabrics and weaves like Vichy check tweeds and hound's tooth suiting, satin tuxedo trims and striped silk jacquards are scaled up and down in dialogue with ribbed sleeves, cable knit ensembles and the O'Lock chain motif as a new monogram.     Co-opting the symbols of a bygone male sophistication, the collection is adorned with 3D pearl and diamond digital prints, shearling floral brooches, pearl O'Lock chokers and crystal FF pendants. The strict lines of FENDI tailoring find new softness as modular garments combine suiting, knitwear and leather in unprecedented proportions. Blazers explode into flat capes, scooped jackets and keyhole knits expose the clavicle, and wide trousers sway with a half-skirt in tow. Outerwear assumes couture volumes with dropped shoulders and Dolman sleeves, sharp lapels and covered buttons - exploring FENDI craftsmanship in etched O'Lock shearling, complex intarsia shearling, and smooth leather trims.     As the ultimate expression of FENDi's Roman elegance, subversive eveningwear silhouettes celebrate the art of dressing up with cropped double-breasted jackets, super high-waist formal trousers, and tailcoats worn over Mary Jane brogues closed with wristwatch straps. Nostalgic footwear includes patent O'Lock loafers with scalloped trims and two-tone wingtip Chelsea boots, whilst the new FENDI sneaker features a dynamic stretched FF logo.     The FENDI Men's Fall/Winter 2022-23 accessories collection sees the Peekaboo bag pared back in its most architectural form to date, appearing as a large, structured shopper in solid smooth and grain leathers, FF logo paneling, suede and inthe season's Vichy check wool, named Peekaboo FFortyB. The Baguette is upsized as an FF-embossed soft trunk and shrunk as an exotic miniature chain bag together with the signature rigid trunk in metal and plexiglass.     In a world first, both the O'Lock motif and Baguette design are transformed as luxury tech accessories for the LEDGERNano X, the leading digital hardware wallet for cryptocurrency and digital assets.     Designed and art directed by the Italian artist Nico Vascellari, the FENDI Men's Fall/Winter 2022-23 runway show takes place on a brushed steel elevated runway ramp in a mirrored FF configuration at FENDI HQ in Milan, with an exclusivelive soundtrack designed by the Italian DJ and composer Alessandro Cortini.     The FENDI Men's Fall/Winter 2022-23 runway show is the first to be live streamed on the newly designed  fendi.com.

Traditional fabrics and weaves like Vichy check tweeds and hound's tooth suiting, satin tuxedo trims and striped silk jacquards are scaled up and down in dialogue with ribbed sleeves, cable knit ensembles and the O'Lock chain motif as a new monogram.     Co-opting the symbols of a bygone male sophistication, the collection is adorned with 3D pearl and diamond digital prints, shearling floral brooches, pearl O'Lock chokers and crystal FF pendants. The strict lines of FENDI tailoring find new softness as modular garments combine suiting, knitwear and leather in unprecedented proportions. Blazers explode into flat capes, scooped jackets and keyhole knits expose the clavicle, and wide trousers sway with a half-skirt in tow. Outerwear assumes couture volumes with dropped shoulders and Dolman sleeves, sharp lapels and covered buttons - exploring FENDI craftsmanship in etched O'Lock shearling, complex intarsia shearling, and smooth leather trims.     As the ultimate expression of FENDi's Roman elegance, subversive eveningwear silhouettes celebrate the art of dressing up with cropped double-breasted jackets, super high-waist formal trousers, and tailcoats worn over Mary Jane brogues closed with wristwatch straps. Nostalgic footwear includes patent O'Lock loafers with scalloped trims and two-tone wingtip Chelsea boots, whilst the new FENDI sneaker features a dynamic stretched FF logo.     The FENDI Men's Fall/Winter 2022-23 accessories collection sees the Peekaboo bag pared back in its most architectural form to date, appearing as a large, structured shopper in solid smooth and grain leathers, FF logo paneling, suede and inthe season's Vichy check wool, named Peekaboo FFortyB. The Baguette is upsized as an FF-embossed soft trunk and shrunk as an exotic miniature chain bag together with the signature rigid trunk in metal and plexiglass.     In a world first, both the O'Lock motif and Baguette design are transformed as luxury tech accessories for the LEDGERNano X, the leading digital hardware wallet for cryptocurrency and digital assets.     Designed and art directed by the Italian artist Nico Vascellari, the FENDI Men's Fall/Winter 2022-23 runway show takes place on a brushed steel elevated runway ramp in a mirrored FF configuration at FENDI HQ in Milan, with an exclusivelive soundtrack designed by the Italian DJ and composer Alessandro Cortini.     The FENDI Men's Fall/Winter 2022-23 runway show is the first to be live streamed on the newly designed  fendi.com.
