The shows were back, as were the people around, although most in masks (due to the local mandate of non-mandatory masks) as New York City celebrated the fashion renaissance with optimistic predictions for Spring / Summer 2022. Magnificent tones of jewelry, large silhouettes, separates and inspiration drawn from New York to Italy. Snapshots:
“Today’s photogenic clothes, by their very nature, mean they’re not shy at all. My clothes this season are simple in fit but not in impact, ”was designer Tom Ford’s description of the clothes he featured on the runway. Glitzy, glam and sparkle on simple silhouettes presented her vision for what Spring / Summer 2022 could be for us. Dress and introduce yourself in style, the collection seemed to say.
Coach’s Stuart Vevers has designed a collection in response to our era that loves the paradox of seriously dressing in athleisure. Inspired by the first designer of the label Bonnie Cashin, the collection also expresses a lot of optimism in the form of colors. Easy partings, long T-shirts, lightweight layers and even unsurpassed pantsuits have been spotted in the collection.
3. Brandon Maxwell
The designer returned to the catwalk with his usual play of bright colors, but also brought in prints. The collection was more toned down than its usual ones which show the evening outfits as heroes. In this collection we have seen more relaxed styles with midi dresses and tunics.
The brand showcased a fun collection that included evening wear with prints inspired by children and models like Gigi Hadid and Irina Shayk walking with quirky baby accessories – and even a bottle that Gigi bit into.
5. Gabriela Hearst
“Being able to create beautiful pieces that are desirable and at the same time empower others is probably one of the most satisfying personal experiences,” the designer said in her press kit for the collection. Inspired by Hester Diamond, the designs saw lots of colorful knits over easy, breezy silhouettes.
6. Prabal Gurung
“The collection reinvents canonical ideas of nationality, gender and beauty through my lens of unfailing optimism and unadulterated hope. America has always been a woman, but she has not always been treated well. What does it mean to be the most essential person in this country? What is the feminine? What is the American? And who can be all of this – or none of it? »- Reading of Prabal Gurung’s press notes. Inspiration for his collection was taken from Pulitzer Prize-winning fashion and culture critic Robin Givhan as he celebrated the female form with his designs that saw floral and spring designs on simple, exaggerated silhouettes.
7. Christian Siriano
The designer inspired his Italian grandmother with dramatic silhouettes, rich colors and Gotham Hall decor in New York City for his showcase. Silk jackets, pantsuits and pointed dresses make up the collection.
8. Michael Kors
Inspired by “urban romance,” the designer once again wrote a love letter to his love city, New York. Celebrating the rebirth and returning to some semblance of normalcy saw plenty of solid colors, light cardigans, pencil skirts, and short suits in Michael Kors’ pointy tailoring.
