The shirt for the fall-winter season 2022 is all about a man who, once again and in an even more specific way, is looking to dress in fabrics that are both comfy and elegant. His choice falls on lighter weights and structures, created to be worn every day, to accompany a lifestyle that’s as dynamic as it is unpredictable.
Technological research is the secret weapon for the market's stand-out companies, the ones that can offer the unique items that satisfy contemporary menswear needs. Results that are achieved using blends of next-generation fibres, including tencel, with its low environmental impact and fluid feel, combined with linen for softer results. This research is also constantly looking to make production more sustainable, which also means using recycled materials, from cotton through to synthetic fibres.
The attraction of practical wear, of returning to a more personal place and time, is behind the resurgence of the flannel shirt – back again for FW 2022. The warm, comfy appeal of a rugged look, identified with menswear that has broken free of convention in favour of a deeper relationship with nature and a unique personal style. From flannel to merino wool shirts, comfort takes shape in the form of solid colour, mélange, and check shirts. A variety of options to wear at home or work, or even during free time, when it comes to creating the perfect cool look for a weekend break.
This season's focus is on a more structured weight, for more elegant, customised looks that represent unique style through original wardrobe pieces. This is especially true in the range dedicated to piece- or garment-dyed velvet shirts with plain or corduroy finishes, as well as covered in a variety of macro prints that make this a truly one-of-a-kind collection. One of the season’s key items is the delavé shirt, with prints or solid colours, made using pigment-dyed and treated fabrics, jacquard cottons and linen blends, with innovative pictorial graphics.
Never change a winning team, and as per tradition, Xacus has renewed some of its important partnerships, confirming our focus on brand values as well as bringing new life to our ranges using the very latest research in terms of style. From Liberty of London, with its usual floral prints that come back in new styles and colour mixes every season, we also have a new and exclusive texture in cotton and wool for the coming winter collection. To Albini, a partnership that has brought some surprising results when it comes to research into innovative fabrics such as 3D stretch, which has an elasticity never seen before, opening the doors of Xacus to the Flex Shirt. This genuine new arrival for the season is made in technical cotton and designed to provide comfort and freedom to move in any situation. The fabric has exceptional flexibility and breathability, to leave the skin feeling natural lightness.
One of Xacus’ most successful menswear items - the Active Shirt - is also back, with a new look, new patterns and a range of different materials and weaves that are all about adding to practical wear.
