It’s currently fashion month and the first week of the fall/winter 2022 collections have just come to a close in NYC. Below I have listed some of the biggest names in fashion to have showcased their work and have narrowed it down to my top five looks from each.
This collection has a simple palette but plays with both strong tailoring and soft dresses. The sophistication of this fall/winter collection has been described as a representation of body-conscious sensuality.
An exploration of clean cuts, sharp lines and bold silhouettes that have been created with a wide variety of fabrics. This collection just says WOW!
A new brand that has taken the fashion world by storm! Khaite was only launched in 2016, and has since become a favourite to celebrities and fashion enthusiasts alike. The label aims to create a certain mood with each and every collection, and I am so here for it!
The show opened with Siri reading from Brandon Maxwell’s Wikipedia page before transitioning to a short film that was made up of family orientated videos and pictures. It was a very personal showcase for the designer, and this collection was said to have been inspired by his grandmother. The core pieces that brought the whole idea to life, lived within the blanket shawls, antique jewellery and clutch bags.
Not a live runway, but each setting is dramatic, eye-catching and creates a strong feel for this bold collection. A retro and colourful array that is a mix between both mens and womenswear.
“In the 2020s, Sui continues to look to the not-so-distant past for inspiration, but she is hitting a new stride in how she translates the obsessions of ’60s rockers, ’20s flappers, and ’90s It Girls for Gen Z and Millennial fashion obsessives.” – Steff Yotka for Vogue Runway
While still respecting the uniqueness and originality of the brand, the designer said to have inserted a bit more of his own personal flare to this collection. In a nutshell, he ‘stuck to the codes, but turned up the volume’.
“Today’s fashionable young people reject binaries in favour of plurality, and they seem uninterested in the old guard’s status markers—or maybe a better way of saying it is that they’ve assigned status to unfamiliar things.” – Nicole Phelps for Vogue Runway.
The designer said to have created the collection to be worn year round and not just for the fall/winter period. Here we have a clear focus on chic outerwear, but my favourite pieces have to be the the clutch coats! Michael Kors himself said that these pieces in particular were inspired by the iconic Marilyn Monroe.
Hands down one of my ultimate favourite designers. The idea behind the label is for the clothes to allow the women who wear them to feel wowed, and to not only feel free to live in the moment, but to celebrate it as well.
This collection was said to have focused on revisiting all the things that have been so loved and appreciated about Coach, by both the designers and customers in the past. This was the idea put in place rather then creating one overall theme for this particular show. I love the fact that this show revolved around all that is loved about this iconic label!
Luminous pastel lighting made this show look like a fantasy land. In fact this collection itself was described as giving off the feeling of ‘some other-worldly French fantasia.’
