The Only Pre Fall 22 Gucci Menswear Look I Liked

Gucci Prefall Menswear 2022 LA Hollywood

"Hollywood is the American Olympus," Alessandro Michele said of why he wanted to show in L.A, but where were the god-like looks?

Gucci just unveiled another mammoth pre-fall show - Gucci's Love Parade - as it took its latest collection to Los Angeles. With over 100 looks of women's, men's, and everything in between, there was only one that I liked - the pink cowboy. Perfect for a Vegas wedding.

We are all used to Gucci's eclecticism, and, when the looks work, they really work, but this felt like it needed more focus or theme to tie everything in. With Hollywood cited as an inspiration, and all eyes on the brand for the soon-to-be-released film House of Gucci, this collection was a disappointment, especially when there is so much inspiration and characters to mine from Tinseltown's past and present.

Gucci does fantastical and retro so well, so why not take inspiration from the Hollywood Walk of Fame the cast walked on?

I found this picture of Mick Jagger (below) wearing a pop-art style star shirt from the 1970s which would have been perfect to replicate on suiting and separates. Gucci love to rip-off vintage looks and this is pure Harry Styles eat your heart out with a bombastic Elton John kapow psychedelic look.

Menswear Product Of The Week The Pouch Glove

Prada pouch glove orange raf simonsRaf Simons at Prada is basically Raf Simons, but with a triangular logo. While he delivered for his debut menswear collection for Prada, - the fans seemed to be happy - the most memorable items were the coloured leather gloves with an annoying little pouch on the back of the hand which you'll never be able to access easily. Costing £850 you'll have nothing left to put in the pouch anyway! Could it be perfect for the back-of-the-hand Oyster entry onto the Underground?

Trend - Bright Tartan

Timothee Chalamet in Prada GQ tartan coatEverybody loves tartan, well, they should do. The brighter the better in our books.

Bright tartans are nothing new, historically, the Victorians loved going bold with their family checks. Regardless of your clan, think strong clashing colours, especially in your outerwear and accessories.

And, you can always wear more than one at a time, just look at the Johnstons of Elgin 'Clash of the Clans' scarf below. The Gloverall Lochcarron coat is womenswear, but would fit and look good on anybody. Check it all out.

"This really does feel like the water in its name. Light and non-fragranced, it is like refreshingly splashing your face with water. I used after cleansing, morning and night, and there was a visible difference. Skin felt and looked more refreshed and healthier. Definitely a product for guys who want something easy and gentle. Apply moisturiser over the top."

Trend - Menswear Bits With Zips

Timothée Chalamet red carpet Dune London Alexander McQueen zips black metallicTheChicGeek says, "Category is ‘metallic zips’ after skinny clotheshorse, Timothée Chalamet, (or Chalametallic as I've renamed him for this!) hit the red carpet for the ‘Dune’ London premiere in an Alexander McQueen Spring 2022 suit. 

"Alexander McQueen's menswear is usually overly dressy, but this is relaxed, trying, but not too hard, and cool. I just wonder if all the zips actually work. The shoulders seem to in the lookbook image below. Expect this to be a big trend, moving forward in 2022, for the fast fashion menswear brands."
