It was a moment that confirmed what had been brewing in fashion: that gender-neutral style had fully arrived. At the Autumn/Winter 2022 collections, insiders and influencers converged en masse in androgynous, oversized outerwear, boxy tailoring, clunky footwear, sweater vests or tracksuits. Think Annie Hall 2.0, runway edition.
This season, Louis Vuitton led the way with a knockout collection that might just put ties back on the map… for young women. Squid Game star Hoyeon Jung opened the show wearing loose-fitting striped trousers, a leather jacket and a floral printed tie. It was a decidedly mannish look, save for the star’s long, flowing locks, setting the scene for a series of gender-bending, bold-shouldered suits and bomber jackets. Dresses were styled with sporty rugby shirts, reminiscent of how a young co-ed might raid her boyfriend’s closet.
