Athleisure

Sportswear continues to dominate the male fashion landscape, with Prada's colorful collection leading the way. Neon piping, lightweight parkas and rain pants combined to create a cheerfully informal and outdoorsy approach to menswear. This was followed up by Philipp Plein's contribution, which blended all-American basketball attire with tailored leather shorts and sharp blazers. Moncler also channeled an outdoorsy theme with its boy scout-themed adventurous outwear.

Daydreaming

Versace stunned with a lightweight collection that focused on fluid layering for a dreamy result. The collection featured ultra-light long parkas of near transparent nylon, silk shirts reborn as a zip-up blousons and silk knitwear tied round the waist. Salvatore Ferragamo melded "the spirit and attitude of the artist" with that of "the restless adventurer", resulting in a whimsical and imaginative show, while Dsquared2 cited "the quiet rebel" as one of the influencers for its artistic, androgynous glam rock collection.

Printed

Prints were been out in force at Dolce & Gabbana's boisterous and chaotic festive show, with leopard print trousers stealing the limelight. Marni teamed matchy-matchy patterned jackets and accessories together, and Missoni approached the trend in a subtler way, showcasing multicolored patchwork knitwear inspired by Guatemala.
