MSGM PRE-FALL 2022 COLLECTION
Architect and designer Gaetano Pesce, with kaleidoscopic and spirited approach to creativity, is the inspiration behind the collection.

Elements of Gaetano Pesce’s idiosyncratic furnishing pieces served as a prismatic lens through which Massimo Giorgetti reworked prints, fabrications, and treatments for the MSGM Pre-Fall 2022 collection. The tufted, soft-shaped Feltri armchair was behind the creation of quilted fabrics made into roomy padded hoodies in neon tones; the “magma” print recalling Pesce’s resin-cast “Fish Design” vases was transposed into the wooly, furry texture of a rave shorts/ hoodie combo.
“There are quite a few unisex pieces really,” said Giorgetti. “Lots of girls buy into MSGM’s guys’ wardrobe; it’s a spontaneous sharing of codes which makes them feel not pinned to stereotypes of gender play.”
The collection included also purely feminine options in the collection, which had a ’90s underground vibe: Body-skimming stretchy silhouettes, glossy surfaces, slim midi lines, midriff-exposing crop tops—the whole repertoire of minimalism, heightened by MSGM’s zingy, fun-loving spirit. As proof of the optimism ingrained in MSGM’s fashion genes, glitter and crystals sparkled confidently on loose-tailored suits and on frisky second-skin ribbed tops.
