Paris Fashion Week 2022 Wrap-Up

Rounding off another eventful season, this year’s Autumn/Winter Paris Fashion Week saw the return of live fashion events. Welcoming back some of fashion’s biggest names including Balenciaga, Balmain, Rick Owens, Valentino and Dior, Paris Fashion Week went ahead as the conflict in Ukraine remained at the forefront of everyone’s minds across the week’s events. Tributes to Ukraine were made in the form of poetry, song and sombre acknowledgements.

Concluding on Tuesday, Paris Fashion Week 2022 brought plenty of trend-defining pieces and thought-provoking collections. Here are just a few of the week’s best looks.

Louis Vuitton

Dedicated to youth, Louis Vuitton’s latest collection brought plenty of nostalgia-infused eclectic looks. Classic bomber jackets and sumptuous cardigans were paired with floral-printed ties and crips button-downs. Boldly printed sweaters were layered over delicate skirts and dresses; the collection was certainly one that can be “mixed and matched depending on mood” while playing into themes of youthful romanticism and idealism.

I would like people to sense that it’s a collection without constraint, that’s focused on freedom of movement, ease, and total comfort even though it involves very meticulous work in terms of materials.

Chanel

Paying homage to Chanel’s eternal code of tweed, Virginie Viard’s Autumn/Winter ’22 collection saw the Grand Palais Éphémère entirely swathed in the iconic fabric. From classic skirt and blazer sets to dresses and pocket-laden blazers and coats, tweed was both honoured in classic Chanel silhouettes and reinvented for the modern woman. Tweed skirts took on a low-rise fit, accessories included cross-body micro bags, and wellington boots emblazoned with the Chanel CC were featured in Viard’s latest offering.

Miu Miu

Across magazines, social media and red carpet events, it seems the coolest article of clothing to wear right now is Miu Miu’s trend-defining mini skirt from its Spring 2022 ready-to-wear collection. Deconstructing ‘normcore’ fashion, the collection has evidently gone on to inform Miuccia Prada’s Autumn/Winter 2022 collection; the reign of the ultra mini skirt continues.

Paired with ballet flats and knee-high woollen socks, the barely-a-skirt took on a more sports-luxe look with tennis skirt-inspired pleats and matching polo shirts. Longer iterations of the skirt were also offered, along with tiny shorts adorned with double leather belts. Worn brown leather looks and oversized lace-up pants are also featured in the collection- for those who aren’t willing to freeze in the name of fashion next winter.

Valentino

This season, there’s only one word required to describe Valentino’s collection: pink. Highlighting Pierpaolo Piccioli’s keen eye for detail, the -almost- all-fuchsia collection featured intricate embroidery, sequins, structural dresses and coats, delicate scalloped necklines and dramatic capes, all in Piccioli’s collection-defining hot pink.

As a palette cleanser of sorts, Valentino brought a number of all-black looks, including a number of menswear looks. Elevated, quite literally, by 70s-style platform heels, the monochromatic collection achieved the Italian designer’s goal of drawing the eye to the silhouette.

Stella McCartney

Proving to be a consistent feature across this season’s ready-to-wear collections, the lingerie under outerwear look made another appearance at Stella McCartney’s Autumn/Winter show. Delicately curved boning on bralettes and bustiers peaked through cardigans and oversized blazers.

Collaborating with artist Frank Stella, the show also featured a bright splash of the artist’s adapted prints on a dress and matching suit number, while accessories showcased mock leather supposedly made from grape skins.

In a statement against war, the English designer closed her Autumn/Winter show to the tune of John Lennon’s “Give Peace a Chance”.
