3 Fresh Trends from NYFW S/S 22

After a year and a half without traditional, in person, fashion shows, New York Fashion Week - one of the world’s most important fashion events - returned in grand style: more than 90 brands presented their proposals for the season, guaranteeing an air of revival - as expected and celebrated by the fashion universe.

Several stylists took advantage of the wealth of iconic settings offered by New York for their long awaited audiences. Collina Strada, for example, chose an urban garden to present her collection that claims a more sustainable fashion, with recycled material. While, Ulla Johnson opted for the stunning Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.

Despite the long-term uncertainties, the industry's recovery has been more concrete and fashion seems to have, once again, said, with a clear and resounding voice, that the future will be nothing short of bright – literally. In terms of style: the colours are bright and saturated, the tailoring is relaxed and the prints are playful, fun, unusual and even psychedelic.

Some very promising news has emerged including some trends that have already appeared in previous seasons - and that won’t be leaving the scene anytime soon. The shows of the main international fashion weeks are always an important reference for small brands and entrepreneurs: the challenge is to combine inspiration, based on the visual aspects of what tends to achieve commercial success, to the identity and, of course, the uniqueness of each one.
