Fashion is cyclical, now more than ever. Elbow-length gloves were big on many of the 2020 runways — I posted on the ones in the Valentino FW20 collection. Sadly, soon after they were shown we went into lockdown and they flew under the radar. Now, short and long leather gloves are a staple in The Row’s SS23 and FW23 collections. Mrs. Prada put socks back on the catwalk and sparked a grey socks frenzy when she paired them with slingbacks, sandals, loafers, and sneakers in her SS22 Miu Miu show. The Row then showed them with flats in their Summer 2023 collection and Dior styled almost every look with socks in the FW23 collection shown in Paris week before last. And, Mrs. Prada may very well have made sheer and nude hosiery cool again with her recent FW23 Miu Miu collection. If she says nude tights are chic, I’ll go there.
