Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2022 Menswear Collection

Dolce & Gabbana unveiled its latest Fall/Winter ’22 Menswear Collection at Milan Men’s Fashion Week. Keep reading the article to see the best looks from the runway.

The Italian designers, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana opened the second day of Milan Men’s Fashion Week with a face-to-face show. For the Fall/Winter 2022 Collection, Dolce & Gabbana was committed to an urban style with colourful and pronounced silhouettes as well as maxi accessories to complement the looks such as teddy-style hats, platform shoes and sunglasses, all with the firm’s initials embossed.

“We’re challenging ourselves,” said Gabbana. “We’re questioning everything we’ve been used to. Things are changing, and we welcome that change; we want to experience the new, which makes us evolve and move forward.” Dolce chimed in: “Staying put in our comfort zone feels not-so-comfortable anymore.”

The collection featured mostly oversized, including sweaters, sweatshirts, coats, pants, shorts as well as high-necked shirts and tailored blazers in metallic, leather and teddy (studded) textures.

Moreover, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana exploded their silhouettes into enormous proportions. From tracksuits to biker jackets and tuxedos, the dimensions reached circumferences that would have made Leigh Bowery blush. Whether jackets were blown up, the shoulder was the erogenous zone: deconstructed, demanding and daring.

This runway show, which is actually the first one of the year, was a great show. Not only was it in fashion, but also in music. The special guest was the rapper Machine Gun Kelly, who was also the main model of the collection.

Machine Gun Kelly opened the Dolce & Gabbana show in a white suit framed in big, spiky studs. Brooding, pierced and ghostly, he did a spin on the runway before he pressed play on a DJ mixer and disappeared, only to reemerge in a swirly, multi-coloured sequined suit for a live performance of “My Ex’s Best Friend”. But Kelly – newly engaged to Megan Fox – wasn’t just the show singer. His dress sense – inspired by an idiosyncratic musical style, which, according to the designers, “mixes the logic of rap with punk, emo and alternative music” – partly informed a megaphonic collection devoted to the generations who follow him.
