New York Fashion Week has officially come to a close and the new SS22 collections are sensational. The range was amazing and it’s so good to see how unique each and every designer can be.
I put together some of my favourite collections to have debuted, and I am sure that you will start seeing them pop up in all your favourite magazines such as Vogue, Elle, Wonderland, Paper and more.
This collection has movement, shape and elegance. From triangle cut outs to fringe that shifted as the models walked the runway, and silk bubble dresses that flowed in the breeze to detailed floral embroidery at its absolute finest.
“…Gurung activates the codes of American fashion for a collection without big constructions or elaborate shapes, looking for an easy and comfortable sexy.” – Eduardo Viveiros
As always, Moschino never disappoints. It’s whimsical and playful and pastel, which are all things to love. The collections are always quirky and create such a fun atmosphere. What I love most about Moschino is that no matter how different and creative the pieces are, you can recognise the brand from a mile away. They really have created one of the most identifiable luxury clothing brands out there.
DUNDAS X REVOLVE
“The show, held on the rooftop runway of Casa Cipriani, features 46 looks that put a slinky twist on classic fabrics, patterns, and silhouettes. The garments themselves range from spangly mini dresses to sleek leather jumpsuits, making every piece perfect for any post-pandemic party.” – Sarah Powless from Vogue
Although many of the designs have an athleisure shape and cut to them, the bright colours and popping textures go to show that this collection is ready to go out and have fun with this disco glam spin.
This collection had not a single ballgown which is somewhat rare for a fashion week runway show. However, this Brandon Maxwell collection was a lot more creative and expressive as opposed to previous ones where the cuts were much simpler and each look generally stuck to one colour tone per look. Here he has fun and mixes and matches and experiments with neons, textures and layers.
This was the first runway show to ever have been showcased within The Empire State Building in NYC. It was a show-stopping venue for an incredible collection that had a wide variety of prints, fabrics, textures and silhouettes.
“Balenciaga’s Spring 22 presentation considers our shifting senses of reality through the lens of technology. We see our world through a filter—perfected, polished, conformed, photoshopped. We no longer decipher between unedited and altered, genuine and counterfeit, tangible and conceptual, fact and fiction, fake and deepfake. Technology creates alternate realities and identities, a world of digital clones.” – Demna Gvasalia (Balenciaga Creative Director)
OSCAR DE LA RENTA
This has to hands down be one of my favourite collections to have come out of NYFW. The colours and silhouettes are an absolute dream and I quite honestly wish I could add every piece to my wardrobe. Every garment in this collection screams SPRING! It turns out florals for spring can be groundbreaking.
“…the impetus for spring 2022’s extraness was, in part, for Cowan to thumb his nose at people who thought New York nightlife might be over post-2020. “I just wanted it to be a bunch of different women heading to the same party,” he says, adding that he had encouraged the models to really ham it up while on the catwalk ’90s style.” – Sarah Spellings from Vogue
