A year after the last COVID-free catwalk shows in Milan, men’s fashion week for fall/winter 2021-22 begins on Friday, but without the buzz of its traditional audience of buyers, bloggers, celebrities, and media.
The four-day men’s fashion event takes place with infections rising in Italy’s Lombardy region with a return a full lockdown possible as early as the weekend.
Lombardy, whose capital is Milan, is one of five in Italy classified “orange” by the government, which means that stores and most schools are closed, while a curfew remains in force at night.
