Milan Fashion Week Mens FW22: Fendi, Prada, Missoni, and More

By Eliza Jordan

January 18, 2022

To kick off Milan Fashion Week, we’re looking at some of our favorite collections for the Fall/Winter 2022 seasons from Fendi, Prada, Missoni, ETRO, and Tod's.

Staged in a minimalist arena designed by Nico Vascellari, with stadium seating and steel "FF" platform catwalks, Silvia Venturini Fendi reimagined the Fendi gentleman's wardrobe for Fall/Winter 2022. Classics got bold and elegant updates, including traditional coats and suiting in leather, tweed, hound’s tooth patterns, and a new monogram made of the O’Lock chain motif. To the tune of a soundtrack by Alessandro Cortini, models embraced a touch of sophistication, with crystal pendants, pearl chokers, capes, half-skirts, and Mary Jane brogue shoes adorning each look. Paired with the contemporary garments were an array of fresh accessories, too, like the new Peekaboo bag, seen pared down as a large, structured shopper; an upcycled Baguette, created as a small trunk and made from metal and plexiglass; and the first-ever tech accessory made in collaboration with LEDGER, specifically for the LEDGER Nano X—the leading digital hardware wallet for cryptocurrency.

For its Fall/Winter 2022 men’s presentation, Prada also stunned fashion week with an incredible set designed by AMO. Hosted in Fondazione Prada’s vast Deposito room, the space was dotted by regal pillars, glowing in a moody yellow, and filled with evenly-spaced office chairs—all coordinated to part for a long, zig-zag runway. At once, the show started, buzzing with a bright purple portal for models to go from and return to. This season, Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons wanted to mirror reality with cinema, giving men new endeavors, and a new sense of importance, so she show started immediately with a cast of silver screen stars—including ten Hollywood actors, like Kyle MacLachlan, Jeff Goldblum, Tom Mercier, and Filippo Scotti—walking in clothes that visually spoke about work. Now, everyday activities are made into significant occasions, and formalized knits, bomber jackets, and parkas are necessary. Shoulders and waists are ultra-tailored to define shape and form, with architectural garments constructed with modernism in mind. A look that lasted long after the show for us was an all-leather look, with a black trench paired with yellow-green trousers, gloves, boots, and a top.

Missoni was inspired by the art world for Fall/Winter 2022, starting with abstract art and its 1940s movement. For the new collection, the brand created imaginative graphics, a handful of tactile textures, and a new color palette popping with reds, yellows, oranges, and greens. Realistic pieces that were designed to be worn and worn again were given much thought, including classics like the Cardigan sweater, v-neck shirts, and comfortable suits. Below, we noted knitted joggers, pleated pants, and fabric trousers dotted with utility details. For the chillier months ahead, we’re also seeing a “Mountain Calling” capsule collection of shirts, sweatshirts, and sweaters with Nordic flair.

Presented at Bocconi University, where the quest for knowledge reigns supreme, ETRO hosted its Fall/Winter 2022 presentation to remind us of the power of learning. Dressing smart is a part of that, and for the upcoming months, garments envisioned by Kean Etro provide dense materials, compositions, and colors for a crisp look. Clean silhouettes of layers, prints, and slogans are seen mixed among caftans, pullovers, and rubber garments and accessories. Making footwear fun, we see both sneakers and lace-up Oxfords; the rose is seen written out in Latin and in its regular botanical form as a motif; and monochromatic looks freeze the eye with icy shades of blue and grey.

Through a video presentation at the Rivoli Castle near Turin, Italy, Tod’s showed its new Fall/Winter 2022 line and a contemporary experimentation with contrasts. Evoking the idea that you can stick to your unique DNA and still embrace reinvention (like Michelangelo Pistoletto, whose works hang in the castle), the collection pulled on traditions and Italian ingenuity while offering a mix of proportions. Loose parkas, peacoats, and bold knits are seen paired with a versatile shirt jacket and new winter Gomminos. All in the same color grey, thick trousers and a turtleneck are seen under a zip-up jacket and a coat, topped with light brown boots and lighter brown gloves—utilitarianly strung around the neck by a leather strap. A green short shearling jack is trimmed with leather, featuring a two zipper closure and an open-fan collar; and thick leather gloves with intricate stitching are seen in the same color, but a different tone, as the socks below.
