If you think that patterns are not important, but are just a small insignificant detail that serves to break the monotony of a solid-color wardrobe, you are very wrong. Just think of how important they have become in determining the aesthetics and DNA of iconic brands such as Louis Vuitton's monogram, Burberry's tartan, Gucci's double G or Versace's Greca. There are highly recognizable graphic signs like these, great classics that we find every season, such as stripes and checks, and new graphic patterns that make dresses, skirts and tops special. That of prints is an ancient world that is part of our everyday life and that constantly evolves to incorporate the changes, nostalgia and obsessions that we are experiencing. One example? The glitchcore patterns that were so popular in the SS22 collections.

To discover the other 5 patterns that will dominate 2022, read on.

 

Graphic fantasies

Bottega Veneta SS22
Marques Almeida SS22
Moschino Pre-Fall 2022
Versace Pre-Fall 2022
DSquared2 Pre-Fall 2022
Christopher John Rogers SS22

Burberry SS22

This year it won't be hard to find a pattern that best embodies our style, because besides checks, Rugby stripes and flowers, which remain among the most beloved trends, designers have let their creativity run free, proposing graphic prints, intricate geometries, ripple effect and tie-dye. The main inspirations from which all the major brands, from Bottega Veneta to Goom Heo, from Vetements to Marine Serre up to Moschino are three the '60s and the Mod era, but also the '90s Rave subculture and glitchcore. Pixelated patterns with their techno-psychedelic allure and saturated colors, poised between Matrix and miscalculation, invaded the spring-summer pieces of Balenciaga and Anrealage.

 

Shine all over

Versace SS22
Paco Rabanne SS22
N°21 SS22

Coperni SS22
Bottega Veneta SS22

Not only the iconic Oroton by Versace or Courreges and Paco Rabanne Space Age creations. In 2022, sparkle invades every brand and every item: from David Koma's leggings to Coperni's body, from the fringed miniskirts by Dolce & Gabbana to Tom Ford's colorful, bling-bling blazers, from N°21's mini-dresses to Gucci and Louis Vuitton's eccentric evening gowns. Inspirations come mixing different decades, from the roaring 20s (one of the major inspirations for the 2022 collections) to the slightly kitschy opulence of the eighties, but with a contemporary twist. Our tips: mix a shiny piece with a basic item like a white tee or a pair of jeans (Marques Almeida docet!) or, on the contrary, opt for a total look with shine all over dress, sandals, accessories and make-up.

According to Pinterest Predicts, the plaid pattern will have a triumphant return in every area of lifestyle: from clothing to nail art to furniture. So let's get ready to fill our closet with plaid outerwear, skirts, tops, pants, bags and bucket hats, whether colorful or in the more classic black and white. For a wow effect, the inspiration is the SS22 collections of Thom Browne, MSGM and MM6, but for those who have trouble indulging in a total checkered look, better to start by focusing on individual items that give a twist to the outfit. Let's add Ottolinger's bodycon dress, Vivienne Westwood's tartan blazer, KNWL's miniskirts, Coach's silk and cotton anoraks, Sunnei's long-sleeved t-shirts and Chanel's timeless jackets to our shopping lists for the new year.

Keywords: dopamine dressing. Let's get ready for the rainbow to pop up in our closets. For several seasons now, designers have been trying to convert even the most die-hard black addicts to more vibrant shades, but, this year, the might be almost inevitable. Banning neutral tones, the SS22 catwalks are full of energetic outfits declined not only in Very Peri, the Pantone Color of the Year, or in all the other shades of purple, but also in electric blue, green, yellow, turquoise, orange, fuchsia. The tip is to fully embrace the trend, choosing different shades of the same color or mixing different ones, as in a real rainbow that gives fun and optimism to our days. For inspiration just take a look at the latest collections of Versace, Dior and Valentino.

 

Neo Goth Black

Ann Demeulemeester SS22

Ok, the color, but if you too have a non-conformist soul and want to continue to dress as if you were the heirs of Morticia Addams and Nick Cave, then do as we do and thank all brands like Givenchy, Simone Rocha, Rick Owens or Alexander McQueen who have brought on the catwalk neo-goth models in total black. Some have matched the beloved non-color with leather, some with tulle, some with crystals and some, like Schiaparelli, with gold details, but the result is the same: total coolness. And then tell me what could be more perfect than a black outfit, with the only exception of a white tank top, by Ann Demeulemeester?
