LVMH Fashion Houses – Fendi, Christian Dior, Loewe, Kenzo and Louis Vuitton – unveiled their collections for next season on runways from Milan to Paris during Fall/Winter 2022-2023 Men’s Fashion Weeks.
For the Fendi Men’s Fall/Winter collection, the Italian Maison’s Artistic Director Silvia Venturini Fendi reimagines a gentleman’s wardrobe for the new Roaring Twenties. Old world elegance is updated as playful gestures disrupt formality. Shades of black and cream, burgundy, raspberry, mocha, taupe and white create a rich palette for plays of precious textures and bold graphic statements. Traditional Vichy check tweeds and hound’s tooth suiting are scaled up in dialogue with cable knit ensembles, and the iconic O’Lock chain motif becomes a new monogram. In a world first, tech grabs the spotlight as the O’Lock motif and a miniature version of the famous Baguette bag both morph into luxury tech accessories for the LEDGER Nano X, the digital hardware wallet for cryptocurrency and digital assets. The ultimate wardrobe for a neo-dandy riffs with the refinement of tech innovations.
For Virgil Abloh’s final collection, Louis Vuitton unveiled “Louis Dreamhouse”, an ode to dreams. In a captivating set, violinists and dancers performed to a soundtrack by Tyler The Creator, immersing guests in a magical atmosphere. The pieces celebrate the legacy of Virgil Abloh and embody his core philosophy of seeing the world with the unspoiled eyes of a child. Materials and techniques are not what they seem, transmuting dress codes tied to societal archetypes. The collection is an invitation to live your dreams, discarding the membrane between reality and imagination. To close the show, thirty members of Virgil Abloh’s team joined models on the runway for a final farewell to the late designer.
