Bluemarble Men’s Spring 2022

Anthony Alvarez tapped memories of his Franco-Filipino childhood and a recent trip to the Philippines for an upbeat collection that evoked the beachcomber lifestyle. Tropical references and seaside motifs became prints on silk shirts, embroideries or even seams twisting into a wave motif down the side of denim jeans. A cache of fabrics he has been collecting from the Philippines gave the lineup a thrifted vibe with patchworks of colors and textures, while he recast the traditional Filipino barong shirt as a leisurely top, turning its characteristic U-shaped embroidery into a print livening up the placket of a sporty polo shirt.

Burberry Men’s Spring 2022

Richard Quinn Returns With a Dance

LONDON — London darling Richard Quinn has been noticeably absent from digital fashion week calendars, choosing to keep rather quiet ever since the pandemic hit. Given his flair for over-the-top eveningwear and showmanship — his London catwalk presentations involved orchestras, grand sets and fairy-tale storylines that left many a showgoer agog — it’d be easy to assume that the young designer would struggle to find his place in this new, digital-first landscape.

Études Men’s Spring 2022

The design trio of Études headed to the hills for spring and showed their contemporary, street-savvy lineup in a mountain setting, with models running through waist-high grass and diving into an alpine lake. It wasn’t exactly bucolic — they didn’t entirely leave the gritty city behind — stylish as the youthful models were, in flamed tops, baggy trousers, trenchcoats, tailored jackets and sleeveless zip-up hoodies — on occasion skateboarding on a neglected concrete rooftop, making out in a cable car or setting off for a spin on a motorbike.
