For the past couple of seasons, designers have been forced to creatively showcase their collections, especially men’s wardrobes.
Summer 2022 season seems to have the remarkable comeback of physical shows, a breath of fresh air in the fashion industry. There was the emergence of a new formality through effortless officewear and the hegemony of the color black.
But at the same time, wardrobes were designed to reconnect with the social life we’ve been missing for the past two years.
Here takes a closer look at the best men’s summers fashion ideas For 2022.
This season saw a chromatic range of neon green, to fluorescent pink and electric blue armed with an audacious desire for a bold, optimistic and colorful summer. A trend seems at JW Anderson, Louis Vuitton, and Loewe.
After a colorful revival this summer, fashion asserts its return to the basics and classic tailoring with a single color: black. For instance, Kim Jones for Dior Men revisited his iconic impeccably cut Oblique suit, Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello relied on his signature minimalist aesthetic. Easy and effective.
After several lockdowns and almost two years of fighting against the pandemic, it is now time to leave behind the mules and slippers for a pair of sandals. Designers have carried out multiple aesthetic experiments to assert the comeback of flip-flops this summer.
The Varsity jacket
If you invest in just one jacket to stay on-trend, it should be this one. Seen all over TV shows and other all-American “college movies” like Grease, the varsity jacket, worn originally by soccer athletes, rugby and baseball teams for their high school or university, has now subtly slipped into the men’s collections for Spring/Summer 2022.
We are hoping that 2022 will be all about the oversized Bermuda short.
The best examples of the big billowing short trend could be found cut from the finest leathers at Hermès, naturelement, in crisp mohairs and twills at Fendi, Zegna, and Wooyoungmi.
The shorts were combined with overshirts and suit jackets in matching shades and at Giorgio Armani, Lanvin, and Dries van Noten.
Comfortable, airy, floaty, light. We have got decades of record-breakingly hot summers ahead of us thanks to the impending climate crisis, so if you’re going to buy one new item next summer, make it a super-light shirt.
Not only will one of Dior’s shirt-cum-muumuus, created in collaboration with artist George Condo, or Dries van Noten’s oversized tunic shirt, for that matter, keep you cool in the heat, but buying just one item also minimize the burden clothing waste puts on the planet, which is no bad thing.
Showing off your torso is now officially a fashion trend. For the young Spanish designer Alled-Martinez, the T-shirt no longer serves its primary purpose. Instead, it wraps itself hastily around the body, while for Dolce & Gabbana, a simple swim brief will do the trick.
The return of Courregés at the hands of designer Nicolas Di Felice has been one of the biggest stories in menswear this season.
Not only did the designer reinvigorate the storied Parisian brand with a slick new silhouette for SS22, but he also showed a series of vests with holes cut out of them, which became an instant sensation on Instagram.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, many equally venerated designers followed suit at the recent SS22 show run – from Riccardo Tisci at Burberry to Jonathan Anderson at Loewe.
Leather has usually been worn mid-season, and this time around, it is transcending time and space to assert its newly found summer aura in the version of pants or even in a total look.
Satin And Silk
Partywear is back on the agenda, people. You need only look (but not too close as you might damage your eyes) at the ultra-shiny lamé, satin, and moire silk tailoring found at Dolce & Gabbana, Moschino, Etro, and others.
Though, for a slightly more civilized take on this new breed of party suit, you might want to look to Dior, where ultra-fine two-pieces hung more like pajamas, and at Loewe, where silky shirts hung like multifaceted gowns.
