The Must Know Fashion News of December 2022 This month’s fashion fixations (also known as the fashion news of December) focus on the elevation of staples introduced by Houses that propel them instantly from catwalk to cart.

At its most straightforward, MRBAILEY® of footwear-design studio CONCEPTKICKS® pays homage to the ZEGNA Triple Stitch sneaker by upsizing the iconic X’s on the upper of the shoe. If one prefers practicality that stays true to the design aesthetics of the House, it now has a removable insole, partial mesh lining for breathability and a toggled cord that allows one to slip in and out of it with ease.

The Triple Stitch MRBAILEY® sneakers come in black, white, gray and ZEGNA’s signature Vicuña color.

AMERICAN APPAREL
Themed around the concept of neighborhood gyms populating America, the New Balance and Carhatt WIP collection has American sportswear essentials — hooded jackets, sweatshirts, and beanies — and of course, a reimagination of the classic 990v1 sneaker silhouette. It now comes with a hairy suede upper and subtle reflective elements on its heel tab and logo.

The Must Know Fashion News of December 2022 EAST TO WEST
A re-imagination of the original Antigona bag, the aptly titled Givenchy Antigona Stretch now extends East to West for more space, comes embellished with Matthew M. William’s signature Givenchy lock and has a wider strap that allows it to sit more snugly on the shoulder .

Its exterior, however, still comes in the House’s signature box-like calf leather that takes on a patina depending on the way it is used.

PRESENT TENSE
Prada adds its own hue of happiness to the rainbow spectrum of colors we associate with gifting (namely, red, orange, and teal blue among others) with white, a color that provides a blank canvas for promises, possibilities and pure innocent joy as seen in the Prada Holiday 2022 Campaign starring Damson Idris and Diana Silvers who are lensed by David Sims.
