As the city hosts the first major ready-to-wear season in 18 months, we’re bringing you all you need to know about the S / S 2022 women’s fashion shows as they unfold.
Shimmering silk fringes, pleated tiger print, picnic blanket checks, optical stripes, the fabrics featured on Austro-Nigerian designer Ize’s Spring / Summer 2022 runway show were sumptuous and tactile in their finish. Spring sees an outpouring of upbeat tones and patterns, a signature of the designer, who made his Paris debut for A / W 2020. Ize has a weaving factory in Nigeria, where the majority of his materials are made. Here they have translated into carefree, easy, layered shapes for men and women, from soft cuts to sarong skirts, skinny knits to flowing dresses, paired with sporty caps, baggy shoulder bags and buckle sandals.
Serre gave up a physical spectacle in favor of digital film, Ostal 24, created with regular collaborators Sacha Barbin and Ryan Doubiago, who saw a cast of diverse models land in a seemingly idyllic country house, to perform isolated activities in its rooms and natural surroundings. Always concerned with sustainable development, this is the most recycled greenhouse collection to date, composed of 45% recycled materials and 45% reclaimed materials. For Spring-Summer 2022, think of bold leathers, patchwork silk scarves, innovative 3D knits (also notable at Sunnei in Milan and Chet Lo in London) and Dutch embroidered tablecloths and tea towels, transformed into gathered dresses and bodysuits. emblematic Serre, bowling shirts and balaclavas. Innovative yes, but infinitely portable, enlarged with a touch of surrealism with jewelry resembling cutlery. §
