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.

Prada was all about the short shorts. Styled with everything from coats to hoodies, leather jackets to blazers, nearly every single model who walked the runway was sporting a pair of tailored shorts, rolled up to an inch or two inseam style. The standout accessory was the bucket hat with the controversial ‘90s accessory making a grand return to the catwalk.

Burberry’s collection was filmed in a desert, with a palette made up largely of blacks and tans, reminiscent of Creative Director Ricardo Tisci’s tenure at Givenchy. The collection introduced twists on the Burberry classics, like sleeveless trench coats and boldly-painted button-downs.

Inspired by Texas, Kim Jones — in collaboration with rapper Travis Scott — presented a mix of easy sportswear and sharp tailoring in soft hues like dusty rose and pale green. Most of the looks were monochromatic, really setting forth the power of color, be it suiting, athleisure, or preppy knits. Accessories were a highlight of the collection with saddle bags, Dior sneakers, and yes — that ‘90s bucket hat — taking centerstage.

Dries van Noten’s latest collection was developed during lockdown in Antwerp, with van Noten sharing simply and profoundly on Vogue, “we want to have fun.” Fittingly, the collection was a mixture of prints, colors, and textures, all shot against the backdrop of the city.

Virgil Abloh told Vogue of his latest collection “I try to create the world as I would like to see it in real life.” With that in mind, the designer crafted a selection of menswear looks with exaggerated silhouettes, bright neon hues, and head-turning accessories.
