The Peak (Singapore)



In the 2006 film The Devil Wears

Prada, the intimidati­ng fashion magazine editor portrayed by Meryl Streep shoots down a hapless staffer’s pitch with the icy statement, “Florals? For Spring? Groundbrea­king.” Perhaps she would have been more pleased with the florals designers sent down the Fall/Winter 2022 runways.

At Dior Men, creative director Kim Jones imagined a conversati­on with the late Christian Dior. Flowers were one of the Dior codes he reinterpre­ted for the collection. These translated to lavish embroidery on tailored shirts and oversized sweatshirt­s that paid homage to archival haute couture, as well as Monsieur Dior’s love for roses.

Moving takes on the floral theme were also seen in Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter menswear, featuring the final collection showcasing the work of its influentia­l artistic director Virgil Abloh, who passed away last November. In head-to-toe looks, a vintage-style jacquard tapestry flashed riotous blooms. There were also bouquet bags filled with leather flowers on some models, seemingly paying respect to the late designer.
