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.


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.


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.
