Hot Fuchsia—the New It Color? and Other Takeaways From Fashion Week 2022 | Architectural Digest


“An escape from realism” is how Pierpaolo Piccioli, creative director of Valentino, referred to his brand’s recent Fashion Week presentation in Paris, an event where the heaviness of current events hung thick in the air. Models clad in fuchsia capes, gowns, and suits from the Valentino Pink PP Collection emerged onto a runway of the same electrified rosy hue, drawing the attention of editors, influencers, and other tastemakers around the world.

And Valentino wasn’t the only couture house that took to pink this season: For Prada’s Fall/Winter show, models emerged from a futuristic tunnel omitting a softly luminescent hue of lilac.

Every Fashion Week season, it’s moments like these that give us a sense of where taste—be it in fashion or interiors—is headed. Below, we’ve rounded up some of AD’s favorite moments from Fashion Week 2022 from Milan to Paris, London, and New York, for a healthy dose of aesthetic inspiration.

Hot fuchsia may just be the new hue to watch, as attendees at various Fashion Week 2022 events can attest. Here, a close up of the shade at the Valentino show in Paris.

Bottega Veneta

In Milan, Bottega Veneta embraced eye-popping green, a signature left over from former creative director Daniel Lee. The newest designer to take the helm, Matthieu Blazy continued the legacy of the “parakeet” shade at the Palazzo San Fedele, where the building’s neoclassical façade showcased green in each window and door. Once inside, the color confined itself to the runway and encompassed an entire range of greens.

Viewers sat in an industrial space among stripped unfinished stone walls, metal construction poles, and fluorescent lighting, a striking backdrop for Blazy’s first show. One by one, models emerged in an array of statement ensembles decked out in sequins, feathers, and fringe. The signature leather pillow bags accompanied the looks, while also providing a seat cushion for showgoers (a party favor they were encouraged to take home). Portable furniture with Bottega panache? We’re here for it.

Old Meets New at Louis Vuitton 

Nicolas Ghesquière’s presentation of the Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter collection exuded the finest version of Parisian quotidien. Staged at the Musée d’Orsay—a fashion first—models strutted along a vaulted exhibition hall lined with 19th-century marbles. Natural lighting from the domed glass ceiling illuminated the clothes and sculptures alike. Amidst the idyllic, aspirational setting, Ghesquière dedicated his collection to the youth and their cultural impact, who look to the future in hopes of a better one.

Valentino Thinks Pink

If you’ve spent some time on the internet, odds are by now you’ve seen the monochromatic Valentino show somewhere. Although reception wasn’t unanimously favorable—The Cut, for one, shared concerns that the color was more “Pepto-Bismol” than anything else—it’s hard to dispute that it made a splash.
