S/S 2022 Paris Menswear Fashion Week was held from June 22th to 28th. Most brands still released their latest collections online. However, the pure digital fashion show has gradually transitioned into a mixed form in the post-pandemic era. The offline events absolutely promoted the attraction of this fashion week. There were 72 brands involved in the show, including Louis Vuitton, DIOR MEN, LOEWE, Yohji Yamamoto, Hermès and Lemaire. Meanwhile, the classic French fashion house Courrèges(founded in 1961) will also return with the first collection of its new creative director Nicolas Di Felice. Dior’s cactus garden, Loewe’s disco look and the beaches of Rick Owens and Lanvin compose the hedonistic atmosphere of 2022 spring.
DIOR MEN — Inspired by the story of Christian Dior, Kim Jones invited the Houston rapper and musician Travis Scott to present this S/S 2022 menswear collection. Memories of Christian Dior’s childhood gardens are fused with the cactus-heavy Texan landscape to create a cross-cultural and cross-era fantastic runway, reviewing the artistic charm from the perspective of Dior.
Hermès — Abandoning the traditional formal wear, designer injects a sense of leisure into light-hearted and lively designs to outline minimalist lines, which accentuates silhouette and exquisite tailoring. Bursts of color and graphic stitching are used more in this season, and mixed multiple materials enliven the whole collection.
Louis Vuitton — The seventh collection of Virgil Abloh for Louis Vuitton was named after the classic song of The Winstons — Amen Break. This mysterious, isolated and weird atmosphere creates a dystopia future, especially reflecting the historical track of Black art and culture. Except for the performance of multiple African artists and hip-pop music, the clothing of this collection also presents the unique personality. Oriental belted element, draped dress hem and athleisure baseball sportswear present intensive visual impact. These bright and eye-catching colors bring us a fashion feast.
Burberry — Burberry S/S 2022 menswear collection has released. The creative director Riccardo Tisci combined freedom with unity to jump out of the constraint. Sleeveless drop-shoulder jacket and deconstructed outerwear try to challenge the traditional principle. The flowing silhouette design is fused with abstract printed patterns and self-fabric straps. Classic brand elements are integrated into the theme to express royalty. Black halter-neck vest, outerwear and shorts are filled with the bravery of young warriors.
Ami Alexandre Mattiussi — The S/S 2022 collection L’Échappée Belle brought by the founder and designer Alexandre Mattiussi leads us to a childlike and mysterious amusement park. The boys in this surreal space are interpreting a romantic night journey and their carefree attitude.
Lemaire S/S 2022 collection presents the peaceful, soft, lightweight and informal elegancy, which is daily and relaxing. The light fabrics in gentle saturated tones are integrated with the unique and personalized concept of multi-functional wardrobe to meet different situations and people. The artworks of African American artist Joseph Yoakum are printed on basic light silk and cotton textiles.
The designer of Jil Sander, Luke Meier took us back to the early 1990s through the Eclecticism and individualization of New York street style. Pale yellow, pale blue, mint, pink, lilac, pale orange, sage green, tobacco brown and hot cocoa are edge-cutting and sensitive. Inspired by every corner of street, improvisation allows all the details to be casual.
