Ten top trends from the winter 2022-23 womenswear shows

Justamente quando se vislumbrou alguma luz no fim do túnel da pandemia, com os desfiles físicos voltando, a temporada de semanas de moda foi interrompida pela guerra na Ucrânia, extinguindo o sentimento festivo. As coleções de outono/inverno 2022-23 que foram exibidas nas passarelas de Nova York, Londres, Milão e Paris de 11 de fevereiro a 8 de março de 2022 – originalmente destinadas a anunciar uma energia renovada de negócios e um novo normal que agora é atormentado por novas incertezas – contou com dois registos distintos, misturando roupas práticas e confortáveis, sobretudo fatos e casacos oversize envolventes, com outfits coloridos, mais sensuais e muito mais glamorosos, um hino à feminilidade que se manteve enclausurada nos últimos dois anos.

Operations suspended in Russia

From Burberry to Louis Vuitton to Rolls Royce, a majority of the worlds leading
luxury brands have suspended their operations in Russia

Fashion Weeks TV

In recent news, nearly every leading luxury has suspended business in Russia. Joining the likes of Nike, FedEx, and UPS, who cut ties with Russia on February 24, are luxury giants Richemont, LVMH, and Kering. The companies collectively own more than 100 luxury brands. These revered labels confirmed they planned to close stores and pause business operations in Russia for the time being. French luxury fashion house Chanel revealed via a LinkedIn post, “Given our increasing concerns about the current situation, the growing uncertainty and the complexity to operate, Chanel decided to pause its business in Russia temporarily.” Luxury giant LVMH with renowned brands such as Christian Dior, Givenchy, Kenzo, TAG Heuer, and Bulgari, among others under its umbrella, can single-handedly change the face of luxury shopping in Russia.

It decided to close all 124 boutiques in Russia without abandoning its staff. LVMH will disburse the salaries of its 3,500 employees in the country, a spokesperson told Reuters. Though Kering has a smaller workforce than LVMH, it has taken the same solid stance. The French multinational owns Gucci, Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, and Boucheron. Kering too has closed shops and vows to support all 180 employees. Following its counterparts is jewelry house Cartier which also disclosed a momentary hiatus of commercial activities in Russia and Ukraine.

Not just luxury fashion, but also luxury car manufacturer Rolls-Royce has stopped deliveries of cars to Russia. It is reported by Forbes with reference to the official representative of the brand.

“The situation in the region remains uncertain. In the current conditions, we are suspending the supply of cars to the Russian market. We continue to evaluate the situation, as well as the possible consequences for our business,” the company said. The British ca manufacturer is joined by German car brand Porsche, who replicated the cessation of the supply of cars to Russia. Porsche has a big business in the country with a presence in over 20 Russian cities. In 2021, a whopping 6,262 vehicles were delivered all over the country. It is not just the biggies of the luxury world that are adopting the above measures. Even retail platforms like Net-a-Porter, Mr. Porter, Yoox, and The Outnet have jumped on the ban bandwagon and asserted the suspension of sales of products to Russian buyers.

Iconic Handbags

Iconic Handbags

These six iconic handbags were inspired by legendary women
who have rocked the world of art, fashion, and politics

Art, fashion, business, absolutely nothing flourishes without women. The fairer sex has demonstrated to be triumphant muses to designers, artists, and even luxury labels. So iconic are these women; their namesake bags too have achieved cult status amongst womankind. The Birkin, the Lady Dior, and the Jackie are named after groundbreaking pioneers who rewrote the rules of fashion, followed diligently even today.

Coach

The limited-edition collection included small leather goods and stunning accessories, but the highlight was the cosmopolitan carryall. The line featured Gomez’s favorite red, black, and neutral beige hues. The singer gave the bag a personal touch and sent solid and heartfelt messages to fans. Inside, a patch reads: To be you is to be strong, and the phrase Love yourself first was embossed on the bag’s base. “It was really fun to create this collection with Selena and design pieces that are cool and feminine like her. When we designed the Selena Grace, it was about exploring the qualities Selena wanted in a bag and creating something that felt personal to her,” said Coach’s creative director, Stuart Vevers.

Hermès

The Birkin introduces its owner to the world in many ways. There truly is no better way to arrive after all than holding a Birkin. This mothership of all iconic bags is named after American actress Jane Birkin. Desired as a symbol of wealth today, the Birkin created in 1984 resulted from a chance meeting. Brkin struck up a conversation about her ideal handbag with former Hermès head Jean-Louis Dumas on a flight from Paris to London. From casual conversation to a creative exchange, the two collaborated on a sketch for the iconic Birkin bag the women of the world worship today.

Gucci

Whatever she chose became the fashion and whatever she wore became legendary! Jackie Kennedy loved the leather bag and often teamed it with her effortlessly chic look. She even used one of these bags to hide away from the paparazzi in the ’70s, evoking Gucci to rename the bag in her honor. Interestingly, the bag was initially called the Fifties Constance.

Dior

Um dos membros mais queridos da realeza britânica, a princesa Diana teve um impacto significativo em seus fãs e ainda mais no mundo da moda. A princesa recebeu a bolsa Chouchou como presente da primeira-dama da França, Bernadette Chirac, em 1995. Uma vez tocada pela princesa Diana, a bolsa naturalmente não poderia ser chamada por outro nome, e a Dior a renomeou Lady Dior em 1996 , em homenagem a Diana. 

Salvatore Ferragamo

Salvatore Ferragamo immortalized his loyal client and longtime friend, Italian bombshell Sofia Loren, with the stunning Sofia Tote. The bag debuted in Ferragamo’s Spring/Summer 2009 collection to pay homage to the actress. Loved for being equal parts practical and pretty, this perfect day-to-night bag comes in various materials like canvas, python, and leather.

Hermès

The actress first fell in love with the bag on Alfred Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief set. The handbag was dubbed as the Sac à dépêches in 1935. The epitome of Hollywood glamour made the trapezoid-shaped bag her companion in the ’50s. From numerous events to the announcement of her engagement with the Prince of Monaco and during her pregnancy, the Hermès Kelly bag was constant.

Dolce & Gabbana launches home interiors line, opens two ad hoc stores in Milan

After a soft launch last September in Venice, during the Alta Moda collection show, Dolce & Gabbana has made an emphatic entrance into the home interiors segment by opening in the heart of Milan the first two stores dedicated to its home decoration products. The project is ambitious: it includes imminent openings in the USA and France, and features a home accessories, tableware and home linen line designed internally, and a furniture line licensed to the Luxury Living Group (LLG).

Fashion Weeks TV

The luxury label led by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana has chosen a highly distinctive, original style for a range that is 100% made in Italy, featuring its signature Mediterranean codes, with bright colours galore and lavish decorations.

“The initial feed-back is positive, it’s a highly distinctive collection, with a unique design language that isn’t to be found among current home interiors lines,” said Andrea Gentilini, CEO of LLG. The line’s joyous, colourful aesthetic is emphasised by the stores’ neutral design, with interiors in black, white and grey, and floors in Basaltina lava stone.

The two collections (home decoration and furniture) feature the same palette and motifs, articulated in four well-defined themes: leopard, zebra, Mediterranean blue and Sicilian cart. The latter, inspired by the decorations of traditional Sicilian painted carts, with exuberant patterns in vibrant colours like vermilion, citrus yellow and royal blue, is a theme that Dolce & Gabbana had developed in 2016 for a collaboration with high-end Italian home appliances brand Smeg, with which the label created a range of kitchen appliances and utensils, from fridges to toasters and kettles.

Dolce & Gabbana’s first home interiors store, directly managed by the label, is located at 7 Corso Venezia, in Milan’s chic San Babila district. The store was previously home to the childrenswear and women’s ready-to-wear lines, which have moved to the label’s other stores in the city, in via Montenapoleone and via della Spiga 2.

The new store extends over 1,200 m2 on two levels, and showcases home and furniture accessories (candles, vases, platters etc.) and other home decoration articles, like table ware, cushions in duchess twill, printed quilts, home linen, rugs, small items of furniture in lacquered wood and more.

The second store is located nearby, at 23 via Durini, and is managed by LLG. It extends over 1,000 m2 on three levels and is decorated in grey and black, in a style identical to that of the Corso Venezia store. A huge chandelier has pride of place in the second store, home to the label’s furniture collections, including sofas, pouffes, tables and other sumptuous items of furniture, mirroring exactly the same themes as the accessories line.

LLG’s portfolio includes home decoration lines by Versace, Trussaedi, Bentley and Bugatti, in addition to the group’s own, brand-new line Luxence. The group has signed a 13-year licence deal with Dolce & Gabbana that goes beyond a mere licensing partnership, as Gentilini explained to FashionNetwork.com. “We work on everything with Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. They are both passionate about design and extremely knowledgeable, always involved and very demanding. Technically, this collection has been a challenge, and has led us to innovate in our manufacturing process.”

To reproduce on tables the patterns in Mediterranean blue and other colours, LLG has had to adopt special techniques. Equally, it used typical fashion industry methods to correctly calibrate the prints on each textile product, and the same for the inner decorations in many furniture items.

“Production-wise, it was undoubtedly more complicated,” said Gentilini, adding that “our products are made in various regions of Italy, depending on the specific craftsmanship involved. We have ambitious expansion plans for this line, notably in the USA, where in July we will open a Dolce & Gabbana Casa store in Miami’s Design District. We are also setting our sights on the Middle East and other regions, with monobrand stores we will operate either directly or with partners, as well as via multibrand retailers.”
 
As a showroom, LLG is sharing the Dolce & Gabbana building in via Broggi in Milan, where the label’s home decoration division is headquartered. Each of the building’s floors is dedicated to one of the four themes inspiring the collections, and also hosts the design and development offices for both the accessories and furniture lines. Nearly 40 people are working on the project, and the number is set to grow. 

The furniture line includes about 600 items, and the accessories and home decoration line 1,500. Products in each category are made by traditional Italian artisans, with blown glass objects made in Murano, ceramics hand-painted in Sicily, and fabrics produced in Como. Some 40 artisans in total manufacture the products for Dolce & Gabbana’s home interiors division.
 
In terms of retail distribution, the label is planning to open a number of ad hoc stores. In addition to the Miami store opened by LLG, three other stores, all directly run by Dolce & Gabbana, will be inaugurated by mid-June in Cannes, Capri and Puerto Banús, near Marbella, in Spain. The label is also currently negotiating with distribution partners, seeking either to open other monobrand stores, or shop-in-shops at multibrand retailers that are able to showcase the entire home interiors range.
