The women's fall-winter 2021-2022 fashion weeks are over. By tradition, the final show was run by the Louis Vuitton fashion house under Nicolas Ghesquière’s direction. We will share with you what designers have shown, as well as highlight the current fashion tricks to be adopted right now. In the selection of the Vremena Goda Galleries, there are the brightest trends right from the fashion shows to be added to your wardrobe this season.
In the fall-winter 2021/2022 collection, designers continue actively taking advantage of prints. The juiciest variations were shown by Louis Vuitton, which in the new season collaborated with the Italian design studio Fornasetti, famous for its tableware with the image of the opera singer Lina Cavalieri. Bright abstract prints in pop art style were shown by Chanel. Animals and floral prints have been relevant as well - these can be found in the collections of Dior and Salvatore Ferragamo.
Designers have already rethought uniforms: the main message was that by using visual codes to pay tribute to doctors fighting with the coronavirus. In the new season, being inspired by rugged aesthetics Salvatore Ferragamo and Hermès showed loose overalls and duos made of pants and jackets resembling workwear. Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of Dior, took even a step further and presented a school uniform: a white shirt with a black pinafore dress.
Quilted overalls, puffy down jackets, knitted hats and scarves - the designers are betting both on comfort and warmth. The brightest trend of next fall is fur boots or mukluks. At once, two major brands Chanel and Miu Miu turned to these shoes iconic for ski resorts. The mukluks’ coming back to the catwalks was caused by two factors: nostalgia for the 00s and a trend for convenience: designers have already popularized "galoshes", rubber boots, quilts as well as fur slippers.
Wearing a warm long coat, you won’t get cold in autumn or winter, therefore designers have consistently included such models in their collections. The absolute hit of the season is a fitted coat. Take a look at leather models, as well as retro aesthetics and strict double-breasted ones. As a pair with a long coat, stylists advise choosing high boots or rough boots with chunky soles.
Oversized bomber jackets
Following the men's fashion shows, bomber jackets appeared during the women's fashion week. The poshest silhouette is an oversized one. Louis Vuitton has shown several variations of the jacket, which is sure to become an indispensable wardrobe item and will not lose its relevance after several seasons. The oversized quilted bomber has been seen at the Dior runway, as well as the cropped model been shown by Hermès.
Another trend of the coming fall-winter season is clothes made of metallic fabrics. Designers invite us to try on futuristic looks: Chanel showed a gold long trench coat, and Salvatore Ferragamo showed a silver chain mail dress. The main advantage of metallic fabric models is their self-sufficiency. Stylists advise to combine such dresses, raincoats and skirts with basic things such as your favorite high or army boots; classic shirts or turtlenecks.
Vital & vibrant colors
In the fall-winter 2021-2022 seasons, designers bet on optimistic colors. Stylists advise: do not think twice to add bright fashion items to classic and casual looks. The most relevant stylistic trick is a monochrome look. Salvatore Ferragamo, Chanel as well as Louis Vuitton presented models made in a vibrant color palette.
In the fall-winter collections, fringe occurred on dresses, outerwear, skirts, adorning also bags and shoes. The main trend is large trims on knitwear and leather goods. The most interesting options were shown by the Salvatore Ferragamo, which decorated dresses and skirts with hypertrophied accent fringes.
