The two big trends from the previous seasons, the comfort-driven home and lounge-wear stories and the dreamy cottage-core theme, have come to a point of saturation. A vitalized spirit that stimulates the senses directs us to new and exciting futures. As society still tries to manage the global upheaval and consequences of the pandemic, a positive and ready-to conquer mindset has infused the masses. Looking back at previous historic periods, post-crisis, and the lavishness and indulgence that followed the years and months of anxiety and suffering, those flamboyant desires come as no surprise.
While history is repeating itself, a thematic turn towards a nostalgic and luxurious interpretation of glamour is inspiring maximalist shapes, reinventing feminine codes and emerging new historic references. For the fabrics of the upcoming FW22 season this influence translates into the return of old classics. Classics, that symbolize a lavish and extravagant escape into nightlife, culture and seduction. Livetrend has tracked the main fabric trends linked to this resurrection of ancient luxe. Instagram and the past runways have begun to be filled with those materials. Setting up your festive and evening lines for the fall/winter 2022 season it is worth to consider those influences and secure new eye-catching and best-selling styles.
