Recognized globally for its sleek tailoring with a modern twist, BOSS has long been synonymous with versatile clean-cut silhouettes ideal for any occasion. However, the brand has kept antics in the sporty realm for the past few seasons, reframing its design direction with a laidback approach. Its Spring/Summer 2022 collection presented last year formulated a fresh take on the contemporary uniform, while FW22 now sees BOSS’ leading man Marco Falcioni adopt a star-studded showcase in Milan’s Velodromo Vigorelli stadium.

Its latest collection seeks to redefine the brand’s “Be Your Own BOSS” catchphrase through its core silhouette: the power suit. BOSS sticks to its roots this season, diving into its extensive archive and pulling out garments freshened for the current generation of executive pioneers.

Naomi Campbell set affairs into motion, wearing a slouchy dark grey suit, barechested and paired with a lavish black overcoat that clung to her shoulders. A slew of dazzling faces followed, from American rapper Future to model Ashley Graham and pro boxer Anthony Joshua.

The striking range saw inspirations from motorcycle gear alongside vintage campaign imagery, which subsequently delivered a youthful attitude to classic brand styles. Padded wool coats, jackets and trousers feature contrasting detailing, promoting your inner athlete as models grasped matching helmets for a safe ride. Muted plaid coats accompany pinstriped suits and cutoff blazers designed with exposed detailing for an unfinished feel. Diverse materials hopped from look to look, presenting leather car coats atop matching vests and protective bottoms.

Metallic silver textiles add reflective flair to fur-lined coats and biker sets. Simultaneously, smooth black leather chaperones a sleek tan palette blasted on houndstooth outerwear, contrasting trench coats and revealing maxi dresses. Fluid and free, garments are cut with mobility in mind, designed for the next generation of leaders.

Touching on the collection, Marco Falcioni says:

“Our archive is the beating heart of BOSS and the brand’s legacy. We were inspired by some iconic BOSS campaign images from the 90s to explore our power suits from decades past, and to ask ourselves: how can we capture the empowering mood of these pieces for a new generation? We were drawn towards the idea of soft power this season. Suiting that is less of an inflexible shield around the wearer, and more an expression of individuality, freedom, and self-expression. This collection is all about dressing like a BOSS, whatever that means for you.”

BOSS’ FW22 collection can be seen in the gallery above. Stay tuned to Hypebeast for more Milan Fashion Week content.
