Top 5 Trends Spotted At New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2022
Fashion's favourite capital did not disappoint
The Big Apple got its mojo back in September as the New York Fashion Week returned to actual runways after a hiatus of 18 months. Extravagant shows and experimental street-style seemed like the mandate for designer. Freshly produced fashion brings along new trends, which promise to dominate the closets of fashion connoisseurs until the next season. Scroll below for a closer look at all the statement-making moments we witnessed.
1. Bare Your Bra

Surprisingly, the basic bras of your closet emerged as the most recurring trend on the NYFW catwalk. It’s spring/summer friendly and has the nod of approval from design houses like Michael Kors, Tom Ford and Moschino.
2. Big And Bold Cutouts

Mini cutout details just don’t do it anymore; designers have decided to take this cut-and-slash trend to a whole new level. Hollow cutouts in the centre-front, side and torso (barely, attached to the skirt) are the new formats followed for this audacious pattern. This season, Prabal Gurung, Threeasfour and Victor Gelmaund sent down looks presenting their own versions of this unapologetic style.
3. Shimmer And Shine Returns

There was no dearth of glamour and shine during this year’s New York Fashion Week. After a long period of normcore at-home clothing, labels decided to take matters into their own hands and unleashed glitter bombs on the ramp. Tom Ford injected a large dose of it in his formal-wear designs; Brandon Maxwell infused it in his resort-chic ensembles.
4. Relaxed Suiting In Action

As the world resumes back to work, it’s only fair to have transitional clothing that is stylish yet comfortable. Drawing orders from that memo, designers Peter Do and Christian Siriano presented an array of anti-fit suits, jackets and flared trousers.
5. Big Bags Are Back

We’re sad to inform you that the itsy-bitsy bags are officially out of fashion. Big and functional bags are back and ready to reclaim their throne. Don’t know how Gen-Z would react to this, but millennials are definitely happy about the extra space. A strong case for its comeback was made by Tory Burch at the New York Fashion Week, as the oversized arm candies hung effortlessly on trench coats and knit dresses.
