Things that you aspire to shop for FW22? Definitely a hand-crocheted cashmere dress or other pieces in the colorful Peacock pattern, the Diana or Nina bag, and a boxy blazer, all from the Gabriela Hearst Fall/Winter 2022 collection! The designer’s warrior-inspired lineup of investment pieces is a fashionista’s dream!
And the list of must-haves from her eco-friendly universe goes on…
I like the Carr Dress, which is handmade using macrame, the art of knotting. Each knot is hand tied by artisans in Bolivia. The multi-directional stripes and the open shoulders make this dress a festive manifestation of color.
The next thing to crave for months is a nappa leather double-breasted trench coat with a woven leather & silk crepe de chine armor-like shoulder panel. It showcases exquisite craftsmanship.
Add as an extra layer, the Farrell Blanket, which is crafted in Bolivia by Madres Y Artesanas Tex – a non-profit organization that provides work to artisan women from rural areas in Uruguay since 1968.
Inspired by the armor of Samurai Warriors, the Eno dress has a crossover top that is knit with rows of ottoman ribs.
Equally coveted is the Blitz Dress, knit with one of the softest, most luxurious yarns in the world, a cashmere/silk boucle. It has full sleeves and a billowing bodice gathered into a leather corset that accentuates the waist.
Last but not least, I love the pieces featuring a bold print titled ‘A place called home,’ derived from a series of pastel drawings of the magical life of trees by Ana Martinez Orizondo.
Besides such statements, the whole collection is filled with the finest quality neutrals and luxury basics including coats, suits, and other layers. The palette includes cognac brown, black, red, ivory, orange, green, and yellow in shades that are ultra-sophisticated.
