Brands came back with a bang showcasing some of the most colourful and artistic collections we’ve seen yet. Signalling a new creative direction post lockdown, the Spring/Summer 2022 collections brought us joy and optimism.
Here are the five trends we saw as London Fashion Week drew to a close.
LEAN ON GREEN
We’re expecting green to be the colour of the season and so too, are designers at London Fashion Week. Designers such as Victoria Beckham, Richard Quinn and Temperley London showcased the bold hue through summer-ready dresses that can be worn from day to night. Whilst green is presented as a predominant colour story, we challenge you to incorporate it in your wardrobes.
Neon colours are making a comeback and courtesy of London Fashion Week, there are some options for you. Further to the green hue we’ve seen ruling the runway, designers were flirting with acid greens, highlighter yellows and neon pinks. The vibrancy of the hues signals brighter days ahead and we’re here for it.
STEP INTO IT
Legwear for Spring/Summer? We haven’t seen it since Blair Waldorf repping it in Gossip Girl but we’re inspired to add it into our wardrobes next season. London Fashion Week proved that colourful hosiery – think bright purples, blues and printed reds – can be worn with whatever you please, and you’d still look good.
At David Coma, it was all about the one-leg statement stocking worn with rhinestones or feathers, whilst Richard Quinn embraced it as a statement-making surprise underneath strapless gowns, and Vivienne Westwood’s quirkiness saw some ant-printed stockings.
ARTS & CRAFTS
The runway collections echoed one of our pandemic hobbies: art and crafts. During the lockdown, we (and designers, too) turned to traditional crafts this season – whether it was incredible pieces by Halpern or intricate patchwork by Preen By Thornton Bregazzi and Rejina Pyo’s exaggerated fringing, It’s all wearable art.
Another trend to bookmark for next year other than the aforementioned are hats – as designers showcased their latest form of the accessory in all shapes and sizes.
