Vetements Goes Full 'Matrix' Style in SS22 Collection
Futuristic silhouettes and prints are complemented by fun logo tees, jackets and more.
Amid speculations of a name change, Vetements has unveiled its full collection for the Spring/Summer 2022 season. The virtual, off-calendar show had been teased over the past week through a series of futuristic, Matrix-themed posts on Instagram.
Continuing that same theme, Guram Gvasalia showcased a whopping 129 looks featuring straight-cut boxy looks emblazoned with digital motifs throughout. Speaking to Vogue, the disruptive brand’s co-founder based the collection off of the questions: “What is reality today? We live in this 2D world; the question is when you scroll through Instagram, is it Photoshopped or is it real? Do we consume the Internet or does it consume us?”
Strong shoulders take over dresses and coats, while the digital print is seen from head to toe on glossy boots. In true Vetements style, garments are highlighted with wordplay with phrases such as “Hotter Than Your Ex, Better Than Your Next” and “The Devil Doesn’t Wear Prada,” which Gvasalia revealed to be on his mood board for some time now. Contrasting the tailored pieces are sporty and comfier looks comprised of tees, jeans, puffer jackets and more arriving in a variety of prints including a warped design.
