Don't miss this extraordinary moment in the world of menswear.

The designer chosen for this season was KidSuper’s founder - Colm Dillane, which was not surprising, since he won the LVMH prize in 2021 and his aesthetic and street style come in close contact with Virgil’s which echoed through the stage during this show. With a performance from Rosalia atop a retro car, and a plethora of beats referencing a bridge across cultures, it made for an exciting spectacle, alas the looks some too similar to what we have seen before, but a few main pieces stole the show, while Colm Dillane is not a permanent designer at the house, he surely was an interesting choice.

The well-known silhouettes that Virgil introduced to the house, alongside some of his innovation present within this collection however pose the question of whether there is a chance that the house would potentially lag behind competition if it focuses too much on preserving a legacy and refuses to move on from the 2020s aesthetic.
