Chanel’s Fall 2022 collection was an homage to tweed. “There’s an English spirit running through the collection, from ‘Spencer’ to The Beatles,” said Virginie Viard, who drew on images of Coco Chanel wearing the duke’s oversize tweed jackets. Her layered silhouettes mixed tweeds of various weights with richly textured cardigans and sweaters, including one dotted with tweed versions of Chanel’s signature camellia flower. Virginie Viard used the full gamut of shades, from psychedelic pinks, purples and greens, to earthy tones fit for country walks at Balmoral Castle.
For Fall 2022 Tom Ford elevated slouch wear by flexing his tailoring skills on hybrid blazer hoodies that looked great over velvet track pants, and matched snoods to mohair sweaters. The collection included black skirts slit high on the leg, matte silk ankle grazing maxiskirts and matching bomber jackets, the perfect white pants suit, and a black velvet tux jacket over loose sequin cargo pants added to the idea of wardrobe building, and also focused on best-of Ford favorites.
Ermanno Scervino’s show was a touch more provocative then what we are used to. Some of the looks included see-through slip dresses covered in sequins and left little to the imagination. The colors that stood out were plum, fuchsia and emerald green, including edgy rib knit hooded cardigans-slash-wrap dresses and slip dresses trimmed in lace worn under oversize biker jackets.
