As a continuation from FW21, where the vest plays a big role in the 3-piece suit, it will play a front role for Spring/Summer. Even if it’s a piece of masculine inspiration, worn on the skin, the vest will speak to a feminine and glamorous consumer, interpreted as a sophisticated, yet alluring piece as well.

Tailoring Innovation

After a few seasons that tailoring has remained a big trend and now, with two seasons where comfort and loungewear have entered the product range of the various retailers, 2022 is the year to drive innovation in tailoring categories.

There was talk of the suit slump even before coronavirus forced us indoors and replaced our blazers with hoodies.
Plenty of designers believe we’ll be back in formal suits. However, contemporary tailoring is interpreted differently. Generally, oversized or genderless silhouettes are the new go-to fits and the most fashionable client demands hyper creative pattern making and layering. Cropped or belted silhouettes are also key to bring newness and innovation to your tailoring staples. Have a look at Moon_Choi_Studio to push the boundaries or keep an eye on thefrankieshop.
