Loewe Spring 2022. FROM VOGUE: Jonathan Anderson is definitely not in the “back to normal and forget” camp of fashion. He was on a mission to mark his comeback runway show at Loewe with a massive creative change. “We’ve had the pandemic, and now we have to come out of it different,” he said. “I think it’s a moment of experimentation. If you’re going to reset after this period, you need to allow a moment to birth a new aesthetic. Start again.”

Balenciaga Spring 2022. FROM VOGUE: “Well,” remarked Demna Gvasalia, with a considerable amount of laconic understatement, “we needed something fun to happen.” With an epic stroke of his genius for messing with fashion conventions and absurdist social commentary, he staged a Balenciaga return to Paris that was both a fake red carpet celebrity-studded, movie-style premiere event and a real one. “I’ve wanted to do a premiere concept where the guests would be the show for many seasons,” he said. “It was nice to have a social occasion again. I hoped it would make people smile.” Smile? It was hysterical.
