For Moschino’s AW22 collection, Jeremy Scott delved into the space of the surreal, taking inspiration directly from the Moschino archives: In 1989 and 1990, Franco Moschino had introduced cutlery brooches and hot-and-cold faucet handles in his ready-to-wear. Staged in a replicated set of the hotel bedroom in Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’, opulent furnishings and decorations came alive across dresses, skirt-suits and outerwear. Glittering chandelier motifs swing on bodies, while silverware come into play as golden decorations of a bodice or as wraps on high heels. Click to see every look now.
For Autumn/Winter 2022, Salvatore Ferragamo opted for an immersive presentation at the neoclassical Sala delle Cariatidi of Milan's Palazzo Reale instead of its usual ready-to-wear runway. Accompanied by a fashion film, the new collection reflected the global shift towards casualisation, deconstructing the codes of "casual" to rebuild them in a spirit of liberated precision and fluid expression. Silhouettes were modern and slender, mixing evening wear accents such as dramatic ruffles with everyday versatility across outerwear, knits and separates. See every look now.
The latest chapter of Kim Jones’ Fendi odyssey saw the British designer refract two iconic Fendi collections in a reconfiguration of the past for the present. “The best way to explore the Fendi archives is through the Fendi wardrobes,” he noted. One of the starting points of the Autumn/Winter 2022 collection came when Delfina Delettrez––daughter of Silvia––walked into the Roman headquarters wearing a printed blouse stolen from her mother’s wardrobe, or more specifically, the house’s 1986 collection, which was in turn referenced by Karl Lagerfeld back in the year 2000. “It’s a wardrobe designed for every aspect of a woman’s life, for every generation.” And on a runway filled with powerful women, delicate slip dresses were paired with long cashmere gloves and a blazer detached into a tailored gilet, alongside plenty of accessories that included additions to Fendi’s Hand-in-Hand project that provided new, emblazoned takes on the brand’s It-bag, the Baguette.

The New York story continues: Stepping out in the Big Apple was the theme of Michael Kors' Autumn/Winter 2022 runway show, presented at the iconic music venue Terminal 5 in Manhattan to an euphonious performance by Miguel. "For this show, I wanted to bring the excitement and energy of a night on the town to life—because I think right now, no matter where you are, we’re all craving that,” said the eponymous designer. “And the clothes are really everything you need for stepping up, stepping out and making an entrance.” And so it was. Presented by a cast of supers including Adut Akech, Precious Lee, Alton Mason, Isabeli Fontana, Irina Shayk and the Hadid sisters, the collection toyed with the art of revealing and concealing––including everything from short hemlines to dramatic hoods and skin-baring cutouts.

Set in the idyllic, neighbourhood town of Coachville, the Coach Autumn/Winter 2022 show was an ode to the joy of dressing up. "My collections often begin with a feeling, and for Fall, the feeling was love," said Stuart Vevers. “To express this, the collection explores tensions between romance and toughness to reinvestigate Coach heritage. I liked the idea of creating a nostalgic world somewhere in America seen through a widescreen lens, mixing the energy of today with the nostalgia for pop culture that has always inspired me.” Alongside graffitied shearling coats, graphic tees and a whole lot of leather, the creative director also debuted his newest accessory, the Bandit bag.
