London Fashion Week 2022 and 4 designers that I liked
Like every year, at London Fashion Week is not about classic glamour or chic-a-porter. It’s about innovation, surprise and a hip vibe in terms of cuts and shapes. Here are the 4 designers that I liked at London Fashion Week 2022 and their collections.
**** #FashionTrend #English
1. Eudon Choi: I met him at Paris Fashion Week few years ago and I loved the pieces. This season, in London, the designer looked to the 1965 film Red Desert for inspiration. Eudon Choi played with the colour palette, reimagining wardrobe staples, tailored jackets, trenches and 60s-inspired silhouettes in tones of red and orange and bits of blue. Choi’s drive for sustainability saw the designer source surplus fabrics, from organic cottons to ethically sourced cashmere. Well done!
2. Roksanda: Under the roof of Tate Britain among the sculptural work of artist Eva Rothschild, Roksanda mirrored the artist’s exquisite use of colour and bold structure for fall/winter 2022. We saw exaggerated padded gowns and unusual colour blocking, in scultural silhouettes juxtaposed with utilitarian details. To note: the selection of collaborative Roksanda x FILA pieces unveiled for the first time as full looks. See here other famous collabs.
3. Raf Simons: At London Fashion Week, the designer showcased familiar styles and materials in more form fitting silhouettes than seen in previous collections. Nylon, wool, velvet and vinyl with a few graphics and lots of oversized outwear define this seasons looks. To note: the head accessories that remind a bit of horse polo games and the oversized bags.
4. Christopher Kane: He presented digitally this season, filming a runway show that was filled with signature details, pieces of fabric like the pages of a book, silver chainmail and sparkly artwork. “Sexual selection” is what he called it: slick, black, wipe-clean cutaway dresses—pointy bras and gathered skirts suspended on matrixes of gold snake chains.
