In pandemic times, we have learned to accept all the necessary changes that come with it. Most big events were affected and in New York Fashion Week it wouldn’t be any different. With Omicron cases still raising, some big brands decided not to participate – Tom Ford is on that list. But more than just showcasing the most famous names in the industry, the event has the power to launch many new talents. And, between old and new, New York Fashion Week creates its own universe for fall/winter 2022.
What’s happened so far:
Wes Gordon, stylist of the brand for 5 years, has shown a trend you probably was not expecting: laces. Yes, we have been seeing a raising of the cutest side of fashion, inspired in the 2000s, and laces are a big part of it. Besides that, florals and ruffles. Even jeans have gained a touch of sophistication: golden details marked the overall informal type of clothing.

Two words to define Sergio Hudson’s runway: safari Sunday. Vibrant colours such as yellow and orange blend beautifully with safari shapes, animal-print and wide hats. All focused on what women can really wear, not just for inspiration.
Mixing interesting shapes and contrasts, Christian Siriano bet on monochromatic looks and lots of blue. With a collection called Victorian Matrix, we already know what to expect. Wide-legged pantsuits, fur jackets, denim and experimental fabrics that looked like liquid latex were some of the biggest marks of the show. Bold.

Patricia Bonaldi, the stylist of the brand, presented her fall/winter collection celebrating the handcraftsmanship, with lots of embroidery and ornaments – what the brand does best. At her second time presenting a collection at New York Fashion Week, the Brazilian brand showed a beautiful handmade contemporary tailoring with a lot of femininity.

Tory Burch opted for comfort. With a combination o active daywear and less structured clothes, the brand presented a sport collection with many asymmetries. Black and brown dominated the colour palette, with a touch of bright tones.
No more homewear. At least this was the statement of the collection presented by the brand. Strong tailoring alongside soft dresses set the tone of the overall waisted looks. Volume and wide shapes contrasted the thin waist, evoking an 18th-century style. Very sophisticated.
