Fashion brand JONATHAN SIMKHAI unveiled their Spring Summer 2022 Reflections Collection, that studies the past to better understand the present, on Saturday, September 11th, during the recently finished New York Fashion Week. The collection fuses dualities such as masculine and feminine, hard and soft, artful and sexy. For the SS22 season, Jonathan Simkhai explored the history of fashion as well as it’s attempts to visualize the future, from the 60’s space-age inspired collections, and the 1970’s reflection on the social movements, to the 1990’s spirit of anti-conformism and female empowerment, and the 2000 mash-ups of different styles and eras.
“Throughout the collection we continue to experiment with suiting. We deconstructed a vintage suit and reconceptualized it for spring in appealing and less serious varieties. Hand crochet is worked though all of our knitwear, offering new twists with fringe and tassel on the hemlines of gowns and trench coats. Adding new character within our airlike gowns, this spring season we are offering billowy cloud-like wisped hems, celebrating movement while paying close attention to form. Mini dresses and gowns are found throughout emblazoned with a new and unique custom guipure lace. And because we remain in the spirit of optimism we chose a tranquil and serene color palette ranging from ivory, champagne and shell to adriatic blue, lupine and scarlet red.” – Jonathan Simkhai
