Fashion Month has taken place over the last four weeks, with shows from New York to Paris. Here is a brief summary of some of the most important developments and from recent weeks.

Fashion Month began in the Big Apple and ended in the City of Light. Over the last month, fashion lovers and critics have traveled to see the new designers’ ideas for the coming season. Over these four weeks, there was also some important news that managed to get everyone’s attention. Here is a brief summary of the most important things that happened in Fashion Month.

Tom Ford presented his Fall 22 collection

This Texan designer presented his collection at Paris Fashion Week via a lookbook of glamorous and sensual images, very much in line with the sexy spirit of the brand. The collection merges the casual and carefree universe of athleisure with the sophisticated world of Tom Ford. We saw velour two-piece suits and satin sweatshirts, dresses with feather-trimmed hoods, and mohair hoodies paired with leather pencil skirts. Tom Ford has defined the image of sexiness over the past few decades, and since moving to Los Angeles, he has embraced Hollywood Glam in his aesthetic. Now, we’re watching him infuse that sporty LA vibe to his opulent world. Every look in his Fall 22 collection was a testament to new luxury, where comfort meets sophistication.

Gucci launched its collaboration with Adidas

The Gucci catwalk was filled with incredible garments that captivated the world becasue of their design and tailoring. Once again, Alessandro Michele managed to make him the center of conversation this Fashion Month. There have been rumors since last December about a collaboration between the Italian house and the athletics giant, and even before its release, it was one of the most anticipated collaborations. Each of the garments in the collaboration combine the retro aesthetics of Gucci and the sporty spirit of Adidas. We saw their logos combined into a new one printed on garments, bags, shoes and small leather goods. Icons such as the Diana bag and Gazelle sneakers got reinterpreted, combining the best of both worlds. Without a doubt, these creations will become collector’s items.

Dries van Noten gets into the beauty industry

During Paris Fashion Week, the Belgian designer impressed the world with his Fall 22 collection and his first line of fragrances and makeup. Dries van Noten decided to create a paradisiacal garden of enigmatic aromas and vibrant hues. The firm’s debut beauty line features 10 genderless perfumes, in which subtle floral notes combine with contrasting elements to create something magical and beautiful, and 30 different lipstick colors in three different finishes:  satin, matte and sheer. Dries van Noten has taken all of his fantastic and dreamlike ideas and transported them to the world of beauty, creating a unique experience that turns makeup into a fairy tale and a fragrance into an ephemeral garden.

Dior reopens its iconic boutique ta 30 Av. Montaigne

French fashion house Christian Dior opened its first boutique at 30 Avenue Montaigne in Paris. In a short time, this location became a luxurious stop for the most elegant, sophisticated, and best dressed women in the world. In 2019, the iconic Dior flagship store closed its doors to undergo a major renovation. Finally, after three years, it is reopening its doors to the public. The completely remodeled building, by interior architect Peter Marino, is more than 10,000 square meters and full of the vast and extraordinary world of Dior: ready-to-wear, leather goods, accessories, menswear, home, jewelry and beauty. It also has restaurant by renowned chef Jean Imbert, a museum that tells the story of the maison, from its founding to the present day, and quirky touches like a sculpture by Paul Cocksedge.

Fashion Cares

During Fashion Month, the world was shocked by the sad news that Russia launched an invasion against the neighboring country of Ukraine. This unfortunate fact did not go unnoticed by the fashion industry. Designers showed their solidarity. Giorgio Armani held his show in total silence out of respect, Marine Serre requested a moment of silence before the start of their show, and Demna at Balenciaga paid tribute by condemning the terrible events prior to the presentation of a collection that was all about human resilience in the face of war. Models Kaia Gerber, Kiki Willems, Vittoria Ceretti, Francesca Summers, Aylah Peterson, Mica Argañaraz, Bella, and Gigi Hadid have pledged to donate all proceeds from their Fall 22 shows to organizations to support those affected by the war. This proves, once again, that the fashion industry is far from being the frivolous and superficial stereotype that many people believe it to be.
