Hey Brush Babes ! It’s that time of year again, fashion week is upon us and this time around, everything is starting to feel slightly more normal than it has for the past few years.For fall/winter 2022, plenty of designers are back on the physical schedule after taking a few seasons off due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
That does not mean however, that we won’t see some digital presentations, as many designers adopt less traditional ways of presenting their designs, whether through imagery, film or something else unique. In fact, it should be an interesting season to help determine how impactful the pandemic has been on the international fashion show schedule. Let’s take a look at the biggest show moments from Milan.
After taking over from Daniel Lee in November, Matthieu Blazy’s first collection for Bottega Veneta certainly made for one of the most highly anticipated shows of the season.
Corsets shaped micro dresses and ¾ length sheaths in lustrous satin, second-skin knits, glossy puffer and even mini skirts coming in denim, raw-edge tweed, and gray flannel pinstripes, Versace doesn’t miss a thing.
Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons continue to delight and surprise with their joint collections, this season opening and closing the show with a simple white tank top worn by none other than supermodel Kaia Gerber and Euphoria star Hunter Schafer. The AW22 collection was all about pragmatic pieces given new emphasis and significance.
Roberto Cavalli’s AW22 collection was inspired by Maria Sophie of Bourbon, the last Queen of Naples. In the heart of seduction, individualism and such total freedom, you can even play with cage dresses, Cavalli’s magical cut-out thus becomes scaffolding made up of fabric bars that are assembled and disassembled on the body with a gesture of feminine self-affirmation.
Inspired by Delfina Delettrez walking into the Roman headquarters dressed in a printed blouse stolen from her mother’s wardrobe, Jones excavated the house’s history to rediscover spring/summer 1986. Jones reworked and paired the geometric prints and sartorial styling of 1986 with the lightness of autumn/winter 2000.
See you next week Brush Babes, until then keep an eye on the runways to spot the next trends !
