An edit of electrically charged looks from the A/W 2022 menswear season, which draw inspiration from the hedonistic rush of the dance floor and the severity of classical menswear alike.

Captured in a series of images by London-based photographer George Harvey and styled by Wallpaper* fashion director Jason Hughes, here is an exploration of the season’s underground mood, taken from the Wallpaper* September Style Issue.
