Fashion weeks are back are back like they never left.
Over the past couple of weeks, designers have been releasing their spring and summer 2022 ready to wear collections. We are seeing lots of trends form last spring stick around such as the knitwear, mixed materials and gender neutral clothing – and I am not mad about it. There are also some deigns on the runway that are bringing back major 2000’s vibes with the mini silk dresses, illuminating accessories and, what everyone loves to hate it, the Canadian tuxedo.
Out of the collections I have seen so far, one of my favorites has been Miu Miu. Miu Miu channeled more of the gender neutral aspect, but by taking mens clothing and reconstructing it to mini skirts and cropped office wear. This was on the causal side of runway attire compared to past Miu Miu collections, and that is to show that we are in a new, defining age of casual dressing. They are taking business casual to a whole new level – has it won over corporate America? Maybe not, but it for sure has left a mark on myself and the rest of Gen Z.
Along with Miu Miu, there were many other designers that surprised me such as Jil Sander, AZ Factory, Christian Dior, and more. Can I afford anything from these collections? Absolutely not, so I will admire them from afar.
Here are my favorite looks for SS22.
