Johnathan Anderson launched his new Spring/Summer 2025 men’s collection on June 16. The collection continued in JW Anderson’s signature brand style of unique design aesthetics that offer a modern blend of masculinity and femininity. The runway shone in silhouettes of loud color and abstracted garments that held the authenticity of JW Anderson of cross-pollination between menswear and womenswear garments.

In addition to the intricate collection, JW Anderson Spring/Summer 2025 partook in a collaboration with GUINNESS. Anderson being a native from Northern Ireland assembled three looks for the runway celebrating the craft and creativity uniting the renowned Ireland beer company and JW Anderson. Look 45 and 53 recreated the signature foam seen on the top of a Guinness embroidered out of pearl to add classic luxury. The pearl sweatshirt used screen printing for the familiar graphics to ground the mixing of luxury elements. Look 55 embodied the classic style of Guinness text by utilizing Anderson’s signature machine embroidery in the cashmere yarn blended sweater.

The Brioni Spring/Summer 2025 collection, designed by Norbert Stumpfl, was held in the garden of Palazzo Borromeo D’Adda on June 15. The collection captured the essence of Brioni’s quest for lightness while rewriting the possibilities in an elevated wardrobe. Longing forth a subtle approach in each piece, a timeless sensation runs throughout the collection.

A tone of calmness is radiant throughout the collection with each look in a chromatic color. The palette runs from browns, blacks, grays, and blues with small accents in aqua green and blue which was inspired by the Scuola Romana painters. A nod to Brioni’s first ever Men’s Fashion Show at Sala Bianca of Palazzo Pitti in 1952 was captured in color with celebrations of looks in different shades of white. The silhouettes offered a voluminous style that drew natural deconstructed silhouettes. Unconstructed blazers, fluid trench coats made out of leather, and blousons made out of knit were a few of many silhouettes seen. The Brioni Spring/Summer 2025 collection reforms the message to live in elegance, and celebrate ease, and quietness.

Giorgio Armani debuted the Men’s Spring/Summer 2025 collection on June 17. The collection pulled forth a simplistic approach that had an array of loose fitted trousers. The color palette is dominantly navy blue, with mixes of gray, light orange, and pink. The silhouettes that were paired with the loose fitted trousers were seen as jackets, tailored suits, knitted sweaters with patterns of designs, silk blouses, and collared shirts. The collection shone a sensation of comfort and functionality in various settings of occasions. Closing the show Armani joined the runway with Leo Dell’Orco, right-hand man and head of the Men’s Style office, and Gianluca Dell’Orco, head of the Men’s Style Office, a long time collaborator who has been working in the brand for 35 years.

In a symphonic meditation on the natural and the industrial, a rich study of contemporary plurality unfolds, and here Zegna revels in the true dawn of individuality. Titled “Us, in the Oasi of Linen,” the revelatory new collection spearheaded by Artistic Director Alessandro Sartori boundlessly explores new patterns, volumes, and colors, uplifting linen as summer’s wardrobe must-have: ebullient, sultry, and resilient. Both revealing and protecting the form, luxurious coats and lengthy blazers were paired with knit shirts enhanced by notchless collars and refined overshirts—as seen on the radiant Mads Mikkelsen. Billowing trousers, refreshing mesh and printed polos, as well as the new “Mocassin” loafer celebrated days and nights basking in an unforgettable Italian holiday. 

“Now that our reformed vocabulary has been established,” said Sartori, “it is the moment to focus on how items are or can be used, on the singular ways they mold to individual personalities. Linen is a wonderful medium in this sense: Oasi Lino is not only traceable and true to our commitment to sustainability, but it is also as malleable and sensual as the idea of summer dressing we are prompting. There is something quintessentially Italian to this collection, in the gentry world the shapes suggest and the insouciant manner they are worn by men who play buoyantly with their own appearance.”
