New York Fashion Week has kicked off a month of fashion extravaganza with a slew of autumn/winter 2022 collections that are already making us wish summer could be over and done with.
Designers including Khaite, Michael Kors, Gabriela Hearst and Carolina Herrera are showcasing their new designs IRL and if it’s a sign of things to come, then expect to up your fashion game come the new season.
Here’s everything that’s happened so far.
New York label Khaitehas become the go-to for women who want to invest in everyday pieces with a hint of femininity and glamour, and this collection is no exception. The show notes explained it was ‘Defying neat distinctions between past and future, reality and illusion, decadence and restraint, Fall/Winter 2022 proposes a profoundly personal wardrobe of nuance and strength, designed to be cherished and made for now.’
This translated into decisive silhouettes in luxe fabrics and pieces that walked the edge between the masculine and the feminine.
“For our Fall collection we found inspiration in the stars. There’s always been something so fun and intriguing to me about pop astrology and the idea that our personalities are influenced by our birth signs. We worked with artist Anita Inverarity on twelve key prints that represent each sign of the zodiac and have incorporated these across a variety of looks across the collection. We wanted it all to feel really eclectic with a sense of fun. We picked up the symbols and icons of the zodiac in our detailing and finishes and there’s a conscious clash of fabric textures in each look. It’s a collection that’s high on finer details. Maybe that’s a bit of the Virgo in me coming through!” – Creative Director, Nicky Zimmermann.

‘For this show, I wanted to bring the excitement and energy of a night on the town to life—because I think right now, no matter where you are, we’re all craving that. And the clothes are really everything you need for stepping up, stepping out and making an entrance,’ says Michael Kors.
