As we bring in a new year, some of the world's leading brands in the fashion industry are welcoming entire new collections. As we reach the tipping point of 2022, we are in need of a fresh start. That includes a new wardrobe to keep up with the latest couture, kicking things off in January 2023 with Men's Fashion week in Milan.
On January 13th, global fashion empires are exerting their ideas that have been building up the last year to walk the runway for the first time. In the midst of seasonal changes, the up-and-coming Fall/Winter collection is set to make its debut among some of the chicest designers. The first designer making an entrance is none other than the Italian high-end fashion brand Gucci. Since 1921, the Florence-based brand has produced bags, shoes, day-to-day clothing, and other glorious accessories for men and women. Though, as we bid farewell to Alessandro Michele, the creative director who served for seven years, we can expect the ultimate fashion affair with the new Gucci boss. Accordingly, the days will be followed up by Fendi and Prada, who will debut their seasonal launch on January 14th and 15th.
On the 17th of January, get ready for a whole new era of Louis Vuitton, the men's division. Prior to this, Virgil Abloh reigned over the LV nest with his culturally inspiring mind as the artistic director. He produced unforgettable statements that marked fashion history for as long as anyone will remember. Now, after his passing, his legacy will be taken over, rumored by Wales Bonner. Speaking of new creative directors, Saint Lauren is set to complement Louis Vuitton's launch on the same day, whereas Dior will debut their menswear line on the 20th of January. As usual, the Parisian Haute couture brand, Maison Margiela, will be closing the curtain of fashion week, setting a new standard for menswear for the entire year.
It is unwritten what audience members on the runway sidelines can expect, as we can't think beyond the viral condom gloves from the previous fashion week in Paris. Yet, what we can confirm are new members of fashion week, such as the combined works of Ann Demeulemeester with the newly introduced creative director, Ludovic de Saint Sernin, who secured one of the last standing spots on the 22nd of January. Stay tuned.
