Milan and Paris are preparing for their own men’s Fashion Weeks, unlike New York and London which have chosen to combine the men’s catwalks within the relative women’s fashion weeks.


Let’s start from Paris and from the Chambre Syndicale de la Mode Masculine, which will present the men’s proposals for autumn / winter 2022-23 from 18 to 23 January next. The hope is to return to the ‘in real life’ format if the effects of the pandemic allow it. The brands that make up the calendar so far are 77, divided between 42 fashion shows and 35 presentations. Prominent names include Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Dior Men, Jil Sander, Dries Van Noten, Kenzo, Paul Smith, Rick Owens, Yohji Yamamoto, Walter Van Beirendonck and Y Project. Two female presences with Paco Rabanne and Alaïa who will unveil their prêt-à-porter collections on the last day of the event. Also on the catwalk was Vtmnts, the new Vetements project launched last summer, with the debut of Guram Gvasalia at the creative helm of the company. Other new entries are the British Bianca Saunders, Andam 2021 prize and finalist of the LVMH Prize, the Americans Amiri, a maison designed by Mike Amiri and participated by the Otb group of Renzo Rosso, and Kidsuper, the Japanese Doublet, the Danish Rains and the French Egonlab, prize Pierre Bergé at Andam, and Bluemarble.


There are also many new names for Milano Moda Uomo, scheduled from 14 to 18 January 2022 with 23 physical fashion shows and 24 presentations, 12 events and 9 digital contents for a total of 47 brands for 68 appointments. The fashion week will see 6 brands present for the first time in the fashion show calendar including Jw Anderson, Federico Cina and 1017 Alyx 9Sm.
