STATE OF MIND

AW22 TREND REPORT

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that while winter isn’t all that much fun, winter fashion is.

Shift your mindset and counter the temptation to stay at home in your track pants (we’ve done enough of that for a lifetime) with fabulous new-season fashion that inspires and protects you against the elements without ever sacrificing style. Whether you’re cleverly styling your beloved floral dresses with chunky knits and the perfect new-season boots, or crafting well-layered autumn outfits in earthy autumnal colours, the sartorial possibilities of cooler weather are endless.

Not sure where to start? Our AW22 Trend Report is here to help simplify autumn fashion, and help you craft new winter outfits in the process.  From the emergence of abstract prints to the return of the ‘mini suit’ (to the unexpected It-colour you’ll be seeing everywhere this winter), we break down the six must-know trends for the new season that will elevate your style, and your confidence. Using tangible, real world styling advice, we’ll help you to seamlessly incorporate these trends into your existing wardrobe—with a few new investment pieces thrown in along the way. Put simply, consider this the failsafe way to avoid the ‘what should I wear’ conundrum, this autumn, winter, and beyond.

  • ABSTRACT PRINTS
  • CRAFTWORK

ABSTRACT PRINTS

Forget the ‘black, white, and navy’ box you’ve spent the last few years living in—it’s time to embrace joy-making colour and abstract prints. Spotted on the runway at Sandro, Prada, and Burberry, this new trend proves that fortune really does favour the bold.

CRAFTWORK

2021 was the year we all took up recreational knitting—2022 is the year ‘craft’ enters the fashion mainstream. Designers ranging from Zimmermann to Chloè are embracing a craft-inspired aesthetic on the runway, courtesy of patchwork motifs, quilting, crochet, and macrame. Not totally convinced? Here’s how to seamlessly incorporate the look into your existing wardrobe.

LILAC

Every season, there’s a bold new statement colour that you can’t help but fawn over. This season, it’s lilac. From minimal ribbed day dresses to delectable accessories and perfectly-tailored power suits, trust us when we say: the purple reign is upon us.

SHIMMER AND SHEEN

Step into the new season decked out in one of its most dynamic new trends: sparkle and sheen. Whether it’s a statement-making sequin embellished party dress or a floor-skimming gown with asymmetric cutouts, a touch of glitter will transform your after-dark wardrobe this autumn and winter.

COLOUR BLOCKING

Feeling trapped in a sartorial rut? The answer to reviving your existing winter outfits is maddeningly simple: add a little colour. Well, a lot of colour. This season fashion has fallen head over heels for colour-blocking.

MINI SUITS

Official PSA: The skirt suit is back. And while we’ll always have a soft spot in our heart (and wardrobes) for one Cher Horowitz, this season’s iteration is more compelling than pleats and tartan.
