Paris Fashion Week A/W 2022 is MY FAVORITE FASHION OF ALL!! If you know anything about the history of fashion you know Paris was THE FASHION INSPIRATION FOR CENTURIES!
Long before New York, Paris’ Haute Couture dictated the vision for ready to wear.
It’s been more than 50 years since anyone has given the Americans a run for their money, but I believe PARIS IS THE CITY TO LOOK TO FOR INCREDIBLE FASHION IN 2022!! Many ready to wear designers are now using Paris streetwear to inspire their creations.
I am omitting “In My Cart” section you’ve seen in previous fashion reviews. For Paris, it’s easier to just say as a blanket statement… EVERYTHING GOES IN THE CART!! If it’s a collection that’s not my vibe, then I will keep in that section & let you know what I would add to my closet.
Next, I would like to say for A/W 2022 PARIS = GOWNS! Everything from train length mermaid styles, to sparkling columns. Paris dry cleaners are going to MAKE BANK as unclean as the streets of Paris are, lol!!
Finally, before I get the ball rolling. My OLD ASS, jumped up & down every time an 80s SUPERMODEL (my era) walked in the Paris shows (see below ⬇️) And by the way, THESE BITCHES DON’T AGE!! Like a fine wine, they ALL got better with age 🤯

The other Dior A/W 2022 goodies were:
- Athleisure details on classic cuts
- Bold colorful trouser socks to extend the athleisure vibe
- Asymmetric pleated skirt suits
- 90s houndstooth IS BACK HELLO!!
- Dior version of waxed denim is amazing
- EVERY kitten heel, glove, & headband is NEXT LEVEL!
WAIT… Tour Eiffel sparkling white as a backdrop in a glass wall room… DECEASED!
After a few looks my mind immediately went to 80s LUXURY FASHION. Not logo overkill but what made 80s fashion SHINE like; big, bold bangle bracelets & chandelier earrings, RICH TEXTILES like silks & YSL signature leather + REAL FUR, YAY!!

Jonathan Anderson also gave us more STIFF STRUCTURED pieces than past seasons.
IN MY CART: I am adding this section because Loewe A/W 2022 DOESN’T VIBE WITH MY AGE GROUP. However, I do enjoy seeing what Loewe creates each season and you can always find some ITEMS TO BOOST A TIRED WARDROBE:
- Faux fur pelt mini skirts as an updated layering piece
- Silver ribbon stiletto sandals
- Cape with painted lapels
- Moon boots
- Chocolate trousers with pull details paired with cropped button down cardigan
When he takes his current season’s shape & explores all the different ways he can use it WILL BLOW YOUR MIND. Like taking a classic sweater & CREATE IT BASED SOLEY ON THE THE SHAPE IS NEXT LEVEL!!
We’re getting multi-layer chiffon basket weave bodices for their interpretation on the corset and the COLORFUL THIN PLASTIC hats, sunglasses, hair pieces & other accessories ARE EPIC!!!
- Goth style pearl choker necklaces
- Layers with oversize coats
- & more

She became a HOUSEHOLD NAME in America in the 90s, when she was co-stylist on the first few seasons of Sex & The City.
Naturally, with the 90s goth trend being IT for 2022, I was excited to see how the new designer, Andreas Kronthaler, would refresh the VW archives
It’s a stretch, but you can find pieces that will work in your wardrobe but there were very few looks that WOW’d me.
Appreciate the gender inclusiveness of the designs however, Imitation of Christ (IOC) did those eye masks more than 2 years ago.
- Chocolate printed large neck ruffled blazer suit with ruched fishtail skirt, peplum & bracelet length sleeves FIERECE
- Gladiator style sequin stilettos with buckle accents
- Ballet flats with & without pom poms
- Large diamond print dress with corset details & puffed shoulders
- You know the MY FAIR LADY style hat is in my cart but IOC did it better
- The platform, strappy, chunky heeled shoes are very 90s sexy
- Can I say YASSSSS to the pleated pieces! Don’t get it twisted (*wink) pleats, ruching, & ruffles are not a trend for Elie Saab. When they create these pieces or details, it’s the BEST YOU WILL SEE!
- They took the rose trend and created it as a colorful burnout textile WHAT?!!!!

This is a luxury brand that designs BANGIN’ LEATHER & true Paris chic looks.
There are some INCREDIBLE DESIGNS like the thigh-high pirate style stiletto boots FOR MEN!! Also extending the gender bending feel by putting men in “Daisy Duke” shorts!
FELL IN LOVE with the printed looks that were all 1 catsuit from the shoes to the gloves, but HOW DO YOU PEE?, lol!
The A/W 2022 IT BAG looks like a high-end leather bin liner and the finale light blue backless gown was EPIC!!
WHAT’S NEW: This season designer Pierpaolo Piccioli reminded us we’ve been through some hard times, came through it, NOW LET’S CELEBRATE LIFE!! Piccioli says he’s going to give you the pieces to do it in PINK! Even the set was all pink.
For A/W 2022 Valentino brought back skyscraper platform heels, but in a latex like fabric to stay on trend. Now let’s be clear, these are the same type of heels that took down Naomi Campbell at the Vivienne Westwood show in the 90s.
To do a 22 minute runway where 95% is pink and you’re still RIVETED & DROOLING OVER EVERY PIECE is GENIUS & a challenge. You have to see to understand everything from the garment, jewelry, shoes & accessories are ALL PINK, yet it’s NOT GARISH OR OVER THE TOP!!
Oversized coats NEED THEM NOW! Loving the scalloped neckline & WANT EVERY PIECE IN THE SHOW!
You are shocked when “THE GOTH” SECTION OF ALL BLACK begins. It’s really only at that point you realize how pink all the other looks are. However, the all black (& I mean all black, like the pink), felt right. The pieces were NEXT LEVEL & like every season I can’t wait to see how they are going to top such an EXTRAORDINARY COLLECTION!!
Finally, 90s SUPERMODEL ALERT: Kristen McMenamy SMASHED IT with the finale look!
For A/W 2022 easy casual looks to UBER RICH designs walked the runway. HIGH-END FABRICS with easy cuts, column silhouettes & subtle cut-out /slashes.
The duster coats are HELLA CHICH and I’m LIVING for the logo tee shirt style skirts + drop waist, spaghetti strap dresses with ruffle hems DECEASED!
We are being graced with CONFECTIONS like a pearl shift dress with matching choker, beaded vests, & stunning hair jewelry. The eveningwear in leather is BOLD & SEXY and the little pearl evening bags are SWEET AS PIE!
As mentioned before, Givenchy covered the 2022 trends their way. Instead of glitter they opted for pearls & beads, showing only 1 large paillette strapless column dress. The thigh high boots are BEYOND SEXY with pointy toes & wedge heels YASS!!

What I love about Stella is she’s a COOL CONFIDENT WOMAN so she really designs for herself; coming from her heart & soul. She creates pieces that are missing from her closet in turn rounding out your closet with FRESH BANGIN’ PIECES!
Another thing I love about this long running brand, is every look is LUXURY HIPSTER LONDON even when showing in Paris. Stella is also known for her prints & cheeky pieces like the 60s style denim (HELLO BEATLES) and the bralette tops cut beautifully with a sweet loop detail.
MENSWEAR WAS NOTICEABLE ABSENT this season & disappointed there wasn’t more diversity in their model selection like every other collection.
YES, THERE WAS LOTS OF BLACK, more than past seasons (Agnes b.’s signature color is navy). And we got reds, greens & yellows + chunky shoes.
In my opinion the A/W 2022 collection WAS GREAT BUT, I’ve seen better from this house.
LOVED the knit topped dresses, JAWDROPPING PRINTS & ruffled 40’s shoulders on blazers & jackets.
LV decided to show in the grand hall of the Musée d’Orsay (visited on my trip to Paris – short art vid below). SPECTACULAR PLACE FOR A SPECTACULAR COLLECTION!
There are tons of pieces I’m coveting; a few notables are:
- Thin strapped shift dresses in boucle with sequin accents & large pockets on the outside OVER EVERYTHING from cowlneck sweaters TO white button down shirts & ties GENIUS!!
- The watercolor printed ties are SUBLIME
- I CAN’T EVEN with the blue & lavender boucle pieces
- Roses over their signature LV logo bags FIRE!!
- LOVING the sky high glitter platform shoes (think I saw a peep toe)
- Long cream duster with black bows paired with matching mini skirt & thing high mock croc boots
- One shoulder sequin bodysuit
- ALL the thigh high boots
- The printed sequin pants
- DUSTER COAT with bow belt & fur trim

- 90s tartan style plaids
- Harem hem pants & more
We got STUNNING KNITS & leather shift dresses. The long logo wool socks & low wellies are cool but the THIGH HIGH LOGO WELLIES ARE COOL AS FUCK!!!
And HELLO GLITTER CAPE & plaid tights. One more mention is the black sequin collarless relaxed fit suit BEAUTIFUL.
How do they continue to MAKE MAGIC after all this time!!
Also new was the frayed edge brief shorts & the oversized jackets & coats. DYING for every SQUARE-TOED BALLET SLIPPER with thick wool socks like leg warmers; I am a former dancer after all!
NEED EVERYTHING of course but definitely the WAXED PYTHON + large woven sequin shift dress with leather belt, HOLY SHIT!!
And finally, OBSESSED with the 1 collar out look! Watch EVERYONE WILL BE ROCKING THIS TREND! Leave it to Miuccia to give us A TREND NO ONE THOUGHT OF!!
