For this spring-summer 2022, the Caten twins thought of a digital show, previously filmed in an abandoned warehouse. The designers preferred to extend the wait for the next return in presence, waiting for the world to become an even safer place.
In any case, the Caten are very good with technology, sure that in case of mistakes you can immediately fix – while you can hardly, with a live event – and this made them feel more confident and focused on the goal.
The spring-summer 2022 collection is a combination of styles and influences; as often happens with the Caten twins, you hardly get bored looking at their garments, and even now it was not far behind. Also this time, the main inspiration was based on the desire to go back out in the night, to return to wear grunge clothes, but also frivolous and fun.
The creative duo then played on the antithesis to make better the idea they had in mind; Fairytale Grunge – the title of the collection – does nothing but confirm the desire of the designers to work on contrasts.
The garments are each the antithesis of the other, we pass from the light and the delicate – expressed above all by the floral patterns and the frills of the mini evening dresses- to others more transgressive and rebellious, made such by the wise use of denim, leather and vinyl effect of maxi boots and skintight black pants.
There were also plaited denim jackets and trousers, tailored jackets with camouflage prints, and butterfly wings for the models. Grunge mixes with fantasy and delicate elements, in a combination that, as surprising as it is, certainly does not clash. Dan commented on this: “Soft and tender and romantic. Tinkerbells”.
