There’s a time and place for formal, semi-formal and “serious” fashion, and for many of us, these occasions are few and far between.

Most of the time, clothes that are more casual and comfortable are our go-to for outings with friends, family meet-ups, shopping trips and travelling.

The Versace Jeans Couture Spring/Summer 2022 collection celebrates youthful experimentation and possibility, with riotous and bright prints featuring florals, leopards, and the unfurling golden leaves of the classic Baroque print.

The women’s collection is made up of romantic and sensual silhouettes with a contemporary twist, with printed jackets, matching skorts and skirts and twin sets and slip dresses reimagined with ruffled flounces and lingerie details.

Plisse is a recurring theme in the collection – featured prominently in activewear where jersey is paired with printed florals and unexpected pleated inserts.

The Gucci Nojum (meaning “stars” in Arabic) collection is inspired by the light coming from the night sky, and its range of products are designed to honour this theme through metallic and sparkling details in a delicate colour palettes.

This elegant and luxurious aesthetic of the collection is highly distinguished by intricate details, and dresses and gowns are characterised by the most refined features.

Crystals, sequins and cuvettes embroideries on light crepe georgette, fil coupe, and iridescent silk speak to the collection’s sophisticated appeal.

In an exclusive collaboration with the iconic Japanese anime character Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, Maje has introduced a limited edition collection with kawaii inspirations.

In this capsule, Maje revisits Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon’s feminine and assertive style, inspired by the love, boldness and femininity values.

Through an original monogram that mixes Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon’s silhouette with Maje’s Clover, the capsule includes several ready-to-wear and accessories pieces in three pop and acid colours: blue, pink, and yellow.

A palette in organic shades leads the transition from dawn to dusk, taking in warm orange sunrise hues through to brilliant sky blues and midnight blacks.

Earth tones further root the collection in natural colours, while points of bright red and acid yellow cut through.

Sunflowers are a running theme throughout the collection, which features youthful details throughout, such as a straight cropped fitted jacket with waist suppression, to a boxy zipped style, and other alternatives to traditional tailoring.

Kate Spade’s Spring 2022 collection is all about finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, and the brand incorporates joy, whimsy and optimism in all their pieces.

Fresh, bright looks with more patterns and colours honour well-loved brand codes with a blend of unexpected details and fresh takes on timeless designs.

Sunny yellows and passionate pinks sit alongside springy stripes and polka dots, allowing the wearer to celebrate everyday magic.

Emporio Armani’s Sustainable Selection for Spring/Summer 2022 features the liberating aesthetic of surfing, contextualised in a metropolitan scenario.

In this collection, sporty pieces play with the codes of formality, and are adorned with traditional surfing motifs.

Garments are characterised by oversized fits, bright shades and bold graphics such as psychedelic waves and stripes, including trench coats, blousons, T-shirts, button-down shirts, shorts and pullovers made of organic cotton, or blends of recycled cotton and recycled nylon.
