New York Fashion Week 2022 Has Arrived

Fashion Week is back in New York. However, like recent NYFWs, things are looking a little different.

Big names like Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs and Calvin Klein are sitting this NYFW out, while COVID precautions are seeing runway shows go ahead on a smaller scale than years gone by. However, pandemic-related adjustments aside, New York Fashion Week 2022 is still set to continue bringing all the incredible winter looks we’ve been missing.

After kicking off on Friday, NYFW was treated to the highly anticipated Fall collections from Proenza Schouler, Helmut Lang and Shayne Oliver; the creative genius behind Hood by Air, amongst a host of designers.

Proenza Schouler

“We’re blurring a line on what’s a showpiece, what’s a commercial piece,” Jack McCollough, one half of the Proenza Schouler design duo, told Business of Fashion.

Featuring structured and layered suit looks, billowy dresses and neutral tones, the Fall/Winter 2022 collection offers timeless winter staples for the modern woman, while playing into the recent popularity of the balaclava for everyday wear.

Helmut Lang

Evoking the streamlined silhouettes of the 90s, Helmut Lang’s latest collection brought tailored suits, silky camisoles and shearling jackets to this year’s New York Fashion Week.

Offering tailored and functional looks in swathes of brown, black, beige and lilac, the Fall/Winter collection reimagines classic womenswear pieces, integrating menswear like the tailored overcoat piece, to present looks that are both androgynous and timelessly feminine.

Shayne Oliver

After a more than four year hiatus, Shayne Oliver, the designer behind Hood by Air, debuted his highly anticipated eponymous label at Hudson Yards.

Decidedly avant-garde, the show reportedly saw models stride out through the audience -without warning and without a runway- to showcase Oliver’s boundary-pushing looks. Absurdly long pointed-toe boots, a top made out of a Telfar bag, diamante covered hoodies and exaggerated coats captivated the audience.

“I think my work is way more based on how real people go about it in New York…It’s what I see on the street, and that’s what I want to bring to life with the clothes,” Oliver told Vogue.
