Men’s Fashion Week for Spring 2022 is underway, and the looks presented are primed for a life outside of quarantine. Fashion houses from Prada to Dior to Burberry are anticipating a return to normalcy, where dressing up to step out is par for the course. What does post-quarantine dressing entail?
Though the shows have only just begun, the looks debuted thus far are a good omen of things to come. Dries van Noten presented an optimistic collection filled with prints and bright colors. Rendered in a muted color palette, Burberry was an artistic dream that turned all the preppy classics on their head. And Kim Jones at Dior — in collaboration with rapper Travis Scott — went the dreamy Americana route, crafting a line of dusty rose, light khaki, and green separates inspired by the state of Texas. Virgil Abloh, conversely, sent neon sportswear and colorful men's skirts and dresses down the catwalk, making the declarative statement that gendered fashion is over — and he's ready to go outside.
As bold as the designs were, it's the accessories that really commanded attention. Aside from two new sneakers debuting at Dior and Louis Vuitton, the accoutrement du jour was the '90s bucket hat. The polarizing accessory popped up at both the Dior and Prada runway, ranging in style from basic black to colorful stripes to covered in see-through logos.
