Make way for comfort! In all segments, AW 21-22 men’s fashions share a desire to cast off constraint, while championing protection and stylistic prowess.
It’s a daring but successful gamble, one to explore in greater depth in the articles in the Première Vision Magazine, and the selections from our fashion team. These targeted articles point you to the key silhouettes, cuts and colors for the coming menswear season.
Tailored looks are back in the headlines for AW 21/22, but this season, menswear emphasizes a new focus on comfort.
Drawing on both the technical performance of sport apparel and the elegance of city wear, the new looks skillfully juggle codes. Silhouettes are sharp and structured, while focusing on innovative materials. An aesthetic rigor is softened by the use of prints packed with humor – featuring a Memphis-style pile-on of absurd and colorful objects – and colors with high visual impact. In a more youthful vein, looks lay claim to the Essentials of the men’s wardrobe, combining them with Varsity-style pieces. The winning mix: oversized Letterman jackets and smart cropped fluid pants worn with revamped heritage-style sneakers.
Supper puffy but super lightweight, casual looks are effortlessly ready for the cold. Pieces are rounded and elongated, like caring and protective cocoons. Materials bet on softness thanks to neo-polartecs and fake furs with a cuddly spirit and plush, cozy and fleecy handles… for a totally laid-back, almost childlike well-being.
In casual wear, there’s a highlight on genderless overshirts with workwear details worked in cottons with a visible structure and denim plain-wovens, and flannel shirts unhesitatingly chosen for their woolly bouclette and brushed finishings. Another sure bet: fluid printed shirts with crazy motifs and a restrained fullness – just right for lending an offbeat touch to a slightly classic suit.
Cutting-edge pajama tops with a satiny fluidity are gaining ground in menswear. They can be teamed with a cashmere sweat pant for a confident look that’s right for indoors or out. In fact the entire homewear spirit is making notable inroads into men’s styles, moving into collections via t-shirts and neo-sweat looks worked in fluffy knits.
In outerwear, authenticity comes through in a workwear influence, with raw denims and plain weaves vaunting their sustainability. In a more wintry spirit, oversized bomber jackets with extra-wide spread collars are worked in sheepskin with a cracked leather exterior and a barely concealed 90’s influence. Technical fabrics are increasingly sustainable, and are now found in all segments. Imposing parkas and puffers with an exaggerated fullness but worked in extra-light weights are made to be worn over a suit, for a strict, minimalist look.
City pieces evoke luxurious bathrobes. Cut from noble and sensual fabrics, they are super long, and move nonchalantly in step with the body.
Fired up and raring to go, color is a catalyst for energy next season. In a season of perfectly precise suits and Sport-influenced fabrics, color is anything but austere, and ready to infuse pieces with an invigorating energy. Whether solar or earthly, red in all its variations sets men’s winter silhouettes ablaze, igniting an unstoppable urge for action, for seduction. And it’s ready to jump into the starting blocks for next season!
