Guram Gvasalia presented his Fall/Winter 2022 collection for VTMNTS, in his first show at Paris Fashion Week, in a closed Monoprix supermarket. The message was “with every end comes a new beginning,” and so it showed, with a collection built on genderless styles and modern technologies mixed with traditional craftsmanship.
This theme was developed through the use of tailoring, with tailoring featured prominently in jackets, two-piece suits and coats. High shoulders and “frame” piping details, and together with pants with hidden zippers, which could transform the whole silhouette when opened, were also very prominent features. of the proposal. Outer garments, above all, were made in coated canvas (traditionally used in luxury handbags), monogrammed with the VTMNTS barcode. Boiled wool coats, denim garments and leather jackets also featured prominently.
Specially developed fabrics with adaptive technologies were a strong point of the collection that were perfectly combined with the concept of handcrafted construction. In addition, these gave the collection a unique aesthetic, which can change and evolve according to changes in the body of the person.
Finally, to say that printed leather coat, with a puzzle motif and an image of a blue sky with which culminated the parade was all. a reference to the past of its designer Guram Gvasalia after his parents fled a war-torn Georgia. “
Undoubtedly, a proposal full of power, with a lot to say and an interesting and direct look into the future of fashion and new materials in the industry.
