KNWLS’ Western Romance is a Futuristic Affair

Live shows are back in full swing at London Fashion Week and ahead of their latest collection for KNWLS, Charlotte Knowles and Alexandre Arsenault injected high-octane energy back into the affair. For their spring/summer 2022 collection, KNWLS revisited their signature corsetry, low-rise trousers, body-con fit, and bold prints with a bit more attitude with the addition of heavier, bohemian textiles like snakeskin cowboy hats and belts, suede, leather, and denim. Thomas De Kluyver, Soichi Inagaki, and Sylvie Macmillan created a futuristic beauty look with highlighted technicolor hair; far-out, frosted colors on lips; thickly, colored mascara; long, horned nails with attitude; and freakily colored contacts. Cast by Anita Bitton, the show opened with Jan Baiboon, closed with Jean Campbell, and had the dominating talent in London this season with Ajok Daing, J Moon, Lindsey Wixson, Lin Yap, Nyarach Abouch Ayuel, and Nyaueth Riam. Check out a sneak peek shot by photographer Eva Al Desnudo of the S/S 22 KNWLS below.
