The Autumn Winter 2022 collection saw inspiration from the graphic lines of London's Brutalist architecture. Brutalism is an architecture style that emerged in the United Kingdom during the 1950s, among the reconstruction projects of the post-war era. Brutalist buildings are characterised by minimalist constructions, showcasing the bare building materials, with an emphasis on materials, textures and structural elements over decorative design.
