Live Review Round-Up: London S/S 22 Womenswear

published on 24 September 2021

Live from London, features editor Hetty Mahlich and fashion critic M-C Hill review the S/S 22 womenswear shows, unpacking whether a return to physical shows was justified.

In a schedule dominated by younger brands, with Burberry, Victoria Beckham and more absent, designers turned to the notion of fashion as performance. Charles Jeffrey invited guests to a nightclub in Farringdon, taking the LOVERBOY label back to its roots, whilst as menswear designers Saul Nash and S.S Daley looked to their own experiences in the British school system with theatrical performances.

Are your clothes wearing you? The most successful womenswear designers this season presented clothes embodied by the wearer. LVMH Prize-winner Nensi Dojaka stepped up the technicalities of her minimalist, delicate designs, but lacked the real woman element found in Rejina Pyo's poolside offering. Here, and at Supriya Lele, there was a successful dichotomy between an amped up sophistication and the notion that sex really does sell.

Stefan Cooke and Molly Goddard reflected on their graduate collections, with Goddard and Simone Rocha's clothes underlined by notions of motherhood this season. Craftsmanship took centre stage at Richard Malone's show at the V&A museum as they unveiled a coveted collaboration with Mulberry. Meanwhile, Matty Bovan continued to explore the idea of hypercraft, in a fashion film by Ruth Hogben.
