A+A Very - Men Fashion Trends S/S2022

In this peculiar historical moment, concerns over the future are multiplying exponentially. Which new socio-economic scenarios lie ahead? How will the world change in the forthcoming years? And, as far as we are concerned, how will the relationship with clothing change and what will the new (ethical, aesthetical) canons be?
The post-COVID Era will surely be marked by a strong desire for practicality, functionality, versatility, whilst leading the man to choose more seasonless clothes, to be worn in layers, according to their daily life.
Garments are inspired by the homewear, the traditional sportswear, the outdoor style and the workwear.
There will certainly be even greater attention to the quality of the material, sustainability of products and supply chain, as well as a truly ethical approach towards their brand.
Technology, research and innovation should also enhance the quality, safety, durability and, above all, the product’s “protective” features.
The need for reassurance, encouragement, being part of a culture, a precise historical reference, implementing values that are “harmless" and “safe”, will be the key drivers of tomorrow's consumer.
The theme of reshaping gender stereotypes will certainly be questioned. However, the road will remain open to menswear that will also be colorful, playful and optimistic.
The desire for something new, including those indispensable pleasures, which will act as a balance against the austere, protective and dystopian spirit that is part of our current state of mind.
