In the Fall 2022 collection during New York Fashion Week (NYFW), St. John, an American luxury knitwear house, reaffirmed its multigenerational appeal with nostalgic images of American dynasties. Creative Director Zoe Turner continues to build on the recent design direction.
“When you think of a dynasty it’s a powerful image. It draws focus on the different generations of women and that lineage that bonds them together. We have taken the St. John codes and channeled a fresh decadence and a daring glamour to further our own legacy,” says Zoe Turner
St. John’s collection included sharp-shouldered jackets worn with smart stirrup leggings, a button-down laminated bustier jacket and skirt and a bow front tweed bustier paired with relaxed straight 5-pocket tweeds. A bonded knit reversible coat is leopard on one side and black on the other while a quilted print jacket reverses to tweed for 2-in-1 precision.
The evening continues to be a highlight for Turner with a sculptural cream taffeta cocktail dress, a leopard midriff-baring draped top with matching floor-length skirt, a pretty-in-pink tuxedo jacket dress, while a sheer ruffled one-shoulder catsuit steals the show for after dark.
Strong tones of pink – raspberry, fuchsia and strawberry mousse – easily pair with a palette of cream, black, nude and red. Leopard print is a classic for the season while a 3D optic print adds to the unexpected.
