Style Points is a weekly column about how fashion intersects with the wider world.

Once, a collaboration was the ultimate in cred—high married to low, luxe mingled with quotidian. But after this just-concluded Milan Fashion Week, that kind of move looks so, well, 2020. Now, designers who once existed in their own never-intersecting, competing lanes are merging, with unexpected results. Perhaps the blueprint for this was the Gucci/Balenciaga linkup we saw at the former’s Aria collection in April, whose “hacked” pieces melded Alessandro Michele’s embellished maximalism with Demna Gvasalia’s Matrix-ready edge.

7 Trends From New York Fashion Week Spring 2022

New York Fashion Week is the first event in the industry’s traditional fashion month calendar, and thus it typically kicks off the season’s round up of trends (though lately, Copenhagen Fashion Week has become its own bellwether, in August).

The week had a decidedly carefree vibe for spring ’22, and swingy fringe was just one detail that gave it life.

Gabriela Hearst’s raffia and cork platforms in partnership with Clergerie were accentuated by a series of knit skirts and dresses that moved with

Pantone Unveils Fashion Color Trend Report for NYFW Spring 2022

Instead of looking outward to celebrities, professional sports teams and TikTokers for cues about color trends, increasingly pandemic-weary people are centered — first and foremost — on their own well-being and how different hues can soothe or invigorate them.

Pantone’s Fashion Color Trend Report for spring 2022 for New York Fashion Week is evidence of that. The 10 standout colors and five core classics cover the horizon whether designers or shoppers are in search of the serenity of familiar colors or revitalization through bolder shades. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said, “People are so focused now on their own well-being that those things that we might have looked at before, like the Olympics, are interesting to people. But the emotional quality of colors is really more impactful than anything else that is happening in the world around us. I know that sounds strange.”
