The refined femininity of wrapping column skirts, reminiscent of the '50s, returns for winter '22-'23, reinterpreted by the most disruptive and visionary designers. Starting with Margiela who designs them with rich ruffles only on the hips in order to create a sort of ‘balloon’ effect, crafted from the most classic fabrics, such as herringbone-patterned wool but also acetate and washed-out denim. Gucci's pencil skirt made from red snake-print leather, flamboyant and shiny, to be worn with a very high, contrasting belt, has already taken Instagram fashionistas by storm. The most romantic pairing is with Miu Miu's satin ballerinas, already a cult object and symbol of comfort, in an original design that almost exactly mirrors the slippers of graceful dancers. Featuring a bow detailing, an elasticated strap with logo, they are to be worn with wool socks slightly down the calf for the ultimate cool look.
