Among the few men who are not shy about wearing fur coats are the puffy and stereotypically feminine wardrobe item - Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Puff Deddy, Justin Bieber and Philip Kirkorov. Today, however, brands such as Dior, Louis Vuitton and 1017 ALYX 9SM, led by Matthew Williams and Givenchy's new creative director, are inviting everyone to do just that. Combined with basic clothing - for example, a classic suit or tracksuit - fur coats do not look so pretentious.

It is generally accepted that the spread of homewear on the catwalk was influenced by the coronavirus pandemic, which led to a more attentive attitude to one's own comfort. However, brands began adapting bathrobes, slippers and even towels to everyday life at least three years ago. Not to mention pajamas, which have long played the role of suits, not surprising even when appearing on the red carpet. However, all this applies for the most part to women - men to this day prefer to wear home clothes exclusively within four walls. In the fall-winter 2021/22 season, designers are trying to show them that there is nothing wrong with appearing on the street in a bathrobe, especially if it pretends to be a coat or a down jacket. To make the thing look as organic as possible in an unnatural environment, it is worth supplementing it with elements that are opposite in style. Fendi offers arrow trousers and patent leather boots, Lemaire offers a basic long shirt, and Louis Vuitton offers a classic suit.

The woolen jacket, which looks like a shirt due to chest pockets, buttons and a plaid print, became a hit of women's collections last season and was even called shacket (shirt + jacket). Jil Sander, Isabel Marant and Woolrich are lobbying for its addition to men's wardrobe, offering to combine with both sporty items (hoodies and joggers) and more elegant ones (turtlenecks and trousers with floral prints). It should be noted that not all shirt jackets have good thermal insulation properties, therefore, during low temperatures, it is recommended to put on a coat or another jacket on top.

Dries Van Noten and Asian brands White Mountaineering and Wooyoungmi came up with a solution for those who did not get to the ski resort because of the closed borders and the overcrowded Elbrus region, but nevertheless bought the appropriate equipment. As it turns out, baggy quilted trousers look great with dress shirts, turtlenecks, and coats. It remains only to learn how to walk in them, not resembling a penguin.

Designers are increasingly abandoning voluminous silhouettes and seek to emphasize the architecture of the body. One of the main tools in this business is thermal underwear, which no longer hides under trousers, but becomes an independent wardrobe item. In the first joint men's collection of Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons, underpants, for example, are proposed to be worn along with turtlenecks, cardigans and parkas. According to the designers, this thing, like the sliders, reimagined in accordance with adult sizes and also appeared in the new collection, has become a symbol of all the feelings that we experience during a pandemic, and a new word in male sexuality.

Turtleneck under a shirt
A turtleneck, also designed to accentuate shapes, is nothing new in men's fashion. However, if earlier it was worn mainly under a jacket, now it seems to have grown together with a silk shirt. To make the combination not look boring, the turtleneck should be in a bright color, and the shirt should have a spectacular print. At the same time, Hermès, Paul Smith and Lemaire, promoting this technique, do not give uniform recommendations on whether to button up the shirt with all the buttons or leave it open.

In one of the Friends episodes, Ross Geller decides to try something new and first of all buys himself leather pants, in which he later goes on a date with the girl. What happened next, you probably remember: the hero's legs fog up and he literally becomes a hostage to fashion. Dries Van Noten, Hermès, Loewe and a dozen other brands that have added leather pants to their fall-winter 2021/22 collection decided that everything new should not contradict the feeling of comfort. Therefore, the thing does not fit the body, preventing air circulation, as was the case with Ross, but has a loose fit and a wide silhouette.

The fight against toxic masculinity, started by Gucci in 2020 and found supporters in the face of other brands, continues, but not so straightforwardly. The role of the dress in the new collections is played by a knee-length or ankle-length shirt, which, in order to avoid shocking the public, is still proposed to be worn with classic, sports or pajama trousers. If you put on a sweatshirt, vest or cardigan over the shirt, as, for example, Bikkembergs or Dries Van Noten does, then its lower part will turn into a neat skirt, while not prejudicing masculinity. It is better to refuse bright prints and embroidery here: let the shirt be plain or striped.

The appearance on the catwalk of denim, as if rolled in dust, sand and dirt, is no coincidence. Thus, brands such as 1017 ALYX 9SM, Reese Cooper and Rhude show that unwashed jeans are more than normal. Indeed, the process of removing contaminants by means of a washing machine can take several tens of liters of water at a time, which depletes natural resources. In addition, frequent washing shortens the life of the garment and leads to the purchase of new ones, which exacerbates the overproduction of clothes, also leaving a negative ecological footprint.
