The latest fashion news in April 2022:
Kicking off our fashion news for April 2022 is Dior’s Spring/Summer 2022 campaign featuring It-girl Ji Soo. As Dior’s global fashion and beauty ambassador, the BLACKPINK star continues to shine in Dior’s ‘60s-inspired creations from Marc Bohan’s iconic Slim Look archives. This season’s creations are bold and flirtatious, filled with boxy and streamlined silhouettes. Our favourite fashion moment is spotting Ji Soo in a vivid yellow co-ord tailored suit with a matching Lady Dior bag.
Valentino returns to the city of Rome. The Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2022-23 collection will debut on 8 July, 2022 at two iconic locations: Piazza Mignanelli and Trinità dei Monti. In the Fall/Winter 2021 Haute Couture show, striking hues and sartorial elegance played a significant role in the collection. Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli expresses, “Roma is the place where everything starts, the life, the people, our stories, and identities are here. We belong to this place as much as this place belongs to the world and Valentino.”
As we look forward to Maison Valentino’s tribute to the wonder and beauty of Rome. Stay tuned for more updates.

If you love Kate Spade New York’s SS22 collection, wait till you see what’s in store for Fall 2022. The brand presented its vivid Fall 2022 collection at SoHo’s iconic 214 Lafayette townhouse in New York. Inspired by the comfort of home, the presentation evokes a sense of cosiness with rose-covered wallpaper, cosy plaid and the crisp pleat of a lampshade to match the silhouettes and tones of the collection. Apart from the dreamy collection, the brand also released its latest coffee table book, “Celebrate That! Occasions.” The new book features a collection of essays to inspire readers to celebrate every meaningful moment, whether small or large.

Inject colours and prints into your everyday wardrobe with Adidas x Marimekko. The two powerhouses are back with a third collection for Spring/Summer 2022. Staying true to the brand’s aesthetics, you can spot the signature Unikko print on tracksuits, leggings, tank tops, sports bras, accessories, etc. The joyful print is splashed on the UltraBOOST 22 and UltraBOOST 5.0 too. If you’re feeling bold, flaunt a head-to-toe Unikko print outfit. We recommend the Light Support Bra and Training Tights. Once you’re done breaking a sweat, layer on the Marimekko hoodie.
