Paris Fashion Week is finally starting to feel like it’s back in full swing, and the city’s top designers came out swinging. From the upcycled alchemy of Marine Serre to classic quaintness of Chanel, from the brilliantly voluminous structures of Sacai to Rick Owens‘ technicolor grandeur, Fall 2022 felt like a very strong runway season.
Miuccia Prada continued to push Miu Miu into exciting new deconstructionist territory, furthering last season’s destroyed and reconfigured office-wear and combining it with a subversive take on preppy sportswear.
Approaching their respective house histories with uniquely contemporary visions, both Nicholas Ghesquière of Louis Vuitton and Maria Grazia Chiuri of Dior layered on multifaceted historical and aesthetic references to create distinctly of-the-moment collections that guide these giants of the past stylishly into the future.
Rick Owens leads the pack with his monumental manifesto of cinematic art-deco glamor.
Here are The Impression’s Top 10 Paris fashion shows of the Fall 2022 season as selected by our Chief Impressionist, Kenneth Richard.
