Paris Fashion Week has definitely served us some of the best and most chic collections yet. Here are some of the best fashion highlights.
Fashion week is truly the gift that keeps on giving. With its numerous events from New York, London, Milan, and now, Paris, all the brands have showcased their most artistic and chic collections yet. And honestly, can we blame them? As the first major fashion event since the pandemic hit, brands are ready to breathe life into the world once again—through the art of fashion.
Here are some of our favorite collections:
For Matthew M. Williams first live show since he was appointed creative director, Givenchy’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection is the perfect mixture of classic and new, classical, radical, and practical. In what seems like a perfect blend of eras, womenswear reminded us of different times of past—corsets, ball gowns, and ruffles—in the forms of peplum tops and sculpted corsets made of neoprene. Just like womenswear, menswear featured layered garments, raw edges, and structured tailoring.
Leave it to Balenciaga to bring edge to the runway. But, the brand’s return to Paris gave so much more than that. The Spring/Summer 2022 collection featured casual looks, ball gowns, and everything in between. Of course, staying true to the brand’s aesthetic, oversized pieces and loose silhouettes were also featured. Known for his unique and unconventional take on fashion, Demna Gvasalia staged a star studded virtual and real red carpet that made it a true fashion event. Stars such as Elliot Page, Offset, Cardi B, and Naomi Campbell were among those who were present. The brand also revealed its newest collection by working with the creators of The Simpsons to premier a one-off episode during Paris Fashion Week.
Loewe’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection was described as “neurotic, psychedelic, completely hysterical,”—and rightfully so. With Jonathan Anderson at the helm, Loewe’s newest collection is all about experimentation. Basic pieces such as coats and dresses are elevated with metal plates, and denim pieces are presented in oversized silhouettes. Basic dresses were also given a twist in the form of unique sculptures and and shapes. The shoes worn by models are also showstoppers, with the heels in forms of soap bars, nail polish bottles, roses, among others.
