Saint Laurent and Bottega Veneta: the best looks from Fashion Week Fall 2022

The Fall 2022 fashion shows wrapped up on Tuesday after weeks of events held across Europe. While many European designers were eager to return to pre-pandemic programming, the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24th tipped the mood of events in another direction. As the shows continued, some designers made gestures of solidarity with Ukraine. Giorgio Armani presented his collection in Milan in absolute silence, while Demna, the Georgian-born artistic director of Balenciaga, closed his show with two looks in the colors of the Ukrainian flag. Despite the news, some fashion houses have chosen joy. During Valentino’s presentation in Paris, the entire room and more than half of the clothes in the show were colored a scorching hot pink. At Louis Vuitton, artistic director Nicolas Ghesquière paid homage to adolescence with a collection including separate school uniforms and oversized rugby shirts. Humble wardrobe items like basic white tank tops became standout pieces in a season when simplicity seemed to be paramount. Model Kaia Gerber opened the Prada show in a white tank top, and another was seen at Bottega Veneta, whose new creative director Matthieu Blazy showed it off with a pair of fashionable leather jeans. But there was new proof that strong tailoring is going nowhere: there were oversized power suits by Alessandro Michele at Gucci and sleek tapered evening looks by Anthony Vaccarello at Saint Laurent. Here are all the highlights from the Fall/Winter 2022 shows.
