16 men’s fashion trends to adopt this spring-summer 2022

16 men’s fashion trends to adopt this spring-summer 2022

In two words? Positive attitude.

If the spring-summer 2021 men’s fashion trends were meant to be free and hopeful, with brightly colored pieces,

suits stripped of all formality, the introduction of jogging suits (with couture accents, of course), and extra-wide

pants where comfort reigns supreme, in 2022, houses and designers are proposing new silhouettes like an offensive

to the pandemic we’ve been through.

What are the men’s fashion trends for spring-summer 2022?

In the last two seasons, designers have been forced to compete creatively to present their collections: when

some bet on the lookbook format, like JW Anderson, others played the video card, like Balenciaga. Although

many have decided to continue in this vein, the spring-summer 2022 marks the great comeback of physical shows,

a breath of fresh air in the fashion world.

Renewed creative energy and optimism remain the watchwords of Spring/Summer 2022 Fashion Week. Certainly, we

are witnessing the emergence of a new formality via suits in the spirit of office wear -but still effortless-

and the hegemony of the color black. On the other hand, wardrobes are really designed to reconnect with the

social life we’ve been missing for the past two years. Enter the vibrant colors, the revisited cardigans, the

party boy looks with glittery pants designed to awaken the night owl in everyone. And let’s not forget the

audacity of designers this season, as a counter-attack to the freedom we’ve been deprived of, introducing pieces

that were originally feminine into the heart of the men’s wardrobe, such as heels, crop-tops and shorts reimagined

as skirts.

Style lesson in 16 trends spotted on the catwalk of New York, London, Milan and Paris Fashion Week.

Cutout

“Always small holes” as Gainsbourg would say. This season, Nicolas Di Felice unveiled his very first men’s collection

for Courrèges and one of the fashion statements of summer 2022 was indeed the openwork pieces. No wonder that other

designers followed the trend, like the Rick Owens bodysuit and the deconstructed marcel signed Y/Project. http://b3.zcubes.com/v.aspx?mid=8378255 Rick Owens

Last summer’s must-have, Bermuda shorts are still a must-have this season. Don’t panic, although the extra-short

shorts are not really part of the trends, they are still cult and ultra desirable. Men’s Black/Metallic Summit White/Hot Punch Giorgio Armani

Arms in front

Guests and celebrities did not refrain from wearing them in the streets of Fashion Week: the sleeveless

sweater – V-neck or round – has become a hit. If Prada has made it one of its spearheads with models with

delicate style, other houses like Dior Men and Erdem appropriate this knit piece to infuse it with all

kinds of patterns. An asset to reveal his biceps. Vans Classic Slip On All Black Dior Men

Shorts… or skirt?

The skirt is no longer reserved for women. When Loewe and Phipps introduce the piece almost verbatim, Prada

plays the card of experimentation with a model half-short, half-skirt with accents 60’s. Deadstock Nike Roshe RunNike Olympic commemorative anti Prada

Cardigan

Extreme length, vintage accents and colorful knits. Long neglected, the cardigan, a retro piece par excellence,

emerges from the closet to boost its fashion quotient and proclaim itself the essential man of spring-summer

2022.

Torso statement

The man of the summer 2021? He strips off, partially or completely, and reveals one of his most masculine

assets: his torso. For the young Spanish house Alled-Martinez, the T-shirt will abandon its main purpose

to wrap hastily around the body, while for Dolce & Gabbana, a simple swimsuit will suffice. Next year, men

will not have cold eyes.

The office life

Formal aesthetics, yes, but stripped of all restraints. Blazer, suit pants, shirt, even the tie… It’s the

whole vocabulary of officewear that the designers have reviewed and corrected for a summer that is both chic

and free.

Under acid

Fluorescent green, neon pink, tangerine orange, electric blue… A chromatic range that arms itself with

audacity for a bold, optimistic and colorful summer. JW Anderson, Louis Vuitton and Loewe have already tamed

them with brio.

Back to black

After a colorful counter-attack this summer, fashion affirms its return to the basics and classic tailoring

with a single color: black. When Kim Jones for Dior Men revisits his iconic Oblique suit impeccably cut,

Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello relies on his signature minimalist aesthetic. Easy but effective, then.

Statement sandal

Gone are the slippers. After several confinements and almost two years of fighting against the pandemic,

it’s time to abandon its indestructible mules and slippers for a pair of sandals. This summer, designers

have given themselves to joy with multiple aesthetic experiments and an assumed comeback of flip-flops.

Think pink

Already seen on the catwalks last summer, pink, pastel or neon, remains without question the chromatic coup

of spring-summer 2022. Embellishing an Ami suit, in total look at Louis Vuitton, or sportswear version at

GmbH, it remains at the top of the colors for which to succumb.

Varsity jacket

If you only had to invest in one jacket to be right on trend, this would be it. It has been seen countless

times in TV shows and other purely American “college movies” such as Grease. The varsity jacket, worn in

particular by the athletes of the soccer, rugby or baseball teams of their high school or university, has

subtly slipped into the men’s collections for spring-summer 2022.

Party boy

It’s time to (re)bring out your inner night owl with a series of bright and bold glitter pieces, like Etro’s

moiré pants and Dolce & Gabbana’s thousand-colored crystal suit.

Back to the green

With their collections, the designers make a return to nature worthy of Marie-Antoinette when she decided

to flee the tumult of the Court in 1783. Direction the countryside, with pastel colors where a cameo of green

exerts its power. Seen at Fendi, Thebe Magugu and Ermenegildo Zegna.

Masculinized heels

Goth fever! Like the skirt, the heels -boots version more exactly- leave their feminine attribute to integrate

the male wardrobe. The watchword, in short? Dare!

Summer leather

Usually worn mid-season, leather crosses time and space to showcase its summer value in pants or total look.
