For Fall/Winter 2022, Fendi’s creative director Kim Jones was inspired by Delfina Delettrez dawning one of the maison’s vintage blouses belonging to her mother, Silvia Venturini Fendi. This was the catalyst for the collection, which looked to the house’s Spring/Summer 1986 and Fall/Winter 2000 collections, reinventing archival pieces for today. A union of form and function was presented in earthy neutrals, executed with materials like tweed, wispy chiffons, mohair, and cashmere. Clean tailoring, accentuated waists, elongated hems, and delicate detailing resulted in powerful elegance, exemplified through looks like a sheer slip with butterfly seams, styled with long mint gloves and a mohair shrug; a fitted tweed jacket paired with a white dress, a small handbag, and neutral heels; and a leather bustier top styled with trousers and a pair of glossy black shoes.

An appreciation for life and a reflection of the maison’s ideology was the basis of Prada’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection by Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons. A futuristic portal leading up to a yellow-lit runway set the scene, juxtaposing day-to-day dressing with precious and sentimental pieces, suggesting that it all plays a role in the bigger picture of style. Designs mirroring this mentality in silhouette and style resulted in pairings of high and low, business and formal, and form and texture. Highlighting the celebration of humanity’s heterogeneity were looks like white ribbed undershirts with sheer or silky skirts; ultra-feminine dresses with cinched mannish tailoring; oversized suiting paired with ankle strap heels and whimsical beaded pieces; and a suite of puffy down jackets covered in sparkly floral appliques.

Roberto Cavalli FW22

Roberto Cavalli’s audacious Fall/Winter 2022 silhouettes evoked freedom, seduction, and individualism through memorable looks that embraced multifaceted femininity. Unapologetic patterns and a more-is-more attitude was feld on the runway this season, seen in elements like all-over animal prints, bold tartan by Fausto Puglisi, and styles with carefully placed drapery or cut-outs. Each look carried the eye from top to bottom, with pairings like an emerald velvet bra top and a leather harness attached to a floating high-low skirt, styled with flower-laden combat boots; head-to-toe animalia featuring a blazer with a glistening velvet lapel; and a black gown featuring metal hardware, strappy detailing on the bodice and neck, and a flowy sheer skirt.

MM6 Maison Margiela FW22

MM6 Maison Margiela’s signature remixed aesthetic and utilitarian mindset returned with a bang for Fall/Winter 2022. Opposing elements of formal and casual, feminine and masculine, and familiarity with the unexpected evoked imagery of everyday people, re-envisioned through the maison’s singular gaze. A staple in the collection, suiting was roomy and took on several forms, like sleeveless overcoats turned into dresses, sharp-shouldered trenches, voluminous trousers that dragged, and tailored pieces imagined in leather. More elegant styles like off-the-shoulder blouses and fitted pants were executed in crinkled nylon, while sporty outerwear was elevated through ruching, fur collars, and tuxedo-reminiscent arm garters. A recurring ouroboros motif was seen as a graphic, encircling the house’s “6” logo, and revisited in details like snake-print undershirts and gloves. The collection also featured a collaboration with French outdoor apparel Salomon, who lent their expertise for a series of styles that took on an MM6 twist, like lug-sole trail running shoes in pink or flame red, and a block-heel ankle boot with exposed lacing.
