The 23 Best Modest Looks from the Spring/Summer 2022 Couture Season

The 23 Best Modest Looks from the Spring/Summer 2022 Couture Season

Ikram Abdi Omar for Antonio Grimaldi
The spring 2022 season was a big one for modest couture, with a large number of demure silhouettes finding their way on the Paris couture week runways and presentations.
Although an homage to Rome, Kim Jones’ collection for Fendi appeared to also have been influenced by the Arab world. Alongside the more obvious kaftans and abaya-like silhouettes, other dresses featured full sleeves, high necks, and lengthened skirts. At Christian Dior, Maria Grazia Chiuri offered modest clothing in various forms: from a suit with the house’s iconic Bar jacket to caped dresses and formal gowns. It also seemed important for Valentino to offer conservative pieces as it took upon itself to allow people of all shapes and sizes to see themselves in couture. Chanel’s take on modest dressing featured the classics such as the tweed suits, while at Viktor & Rolf, Dracula-inspired raised shoulders topped everything from suits to dresses. Modest evening and statement-making dresses came via Glenn Martens’ debut couture collection for Jean Paul Gaultier, including jacquard knit pieces, and gowns in bold shades of red and green. The concept was also championed at Italian designer Antonio Grimaldi’s show which not only opened with Somali hijabi model and former cover star Ikram Abdi Omar, but also cast her as the bride dressed in a modest wedding gown.

The Best Modest Looks from NYFW Spring 2022 So Far

This season’s New York fashion week is offering plenty of options for the modest woman. Designs that have been showcased so far seem to have a strong focus on ankle-grazing dresses, coats, fringes, and drapings, with colors ranging from dark neutrals to bright yellows and pinks as seen at Proenza Schouler. Peter Do, the new all-star designer is presenting a more futuristic take on the spring/summer season with a contrasting color palette seen in full-length coats with stitch detailing, and knit dresses paired with oversized,  “unconventional” purses. Other designers including Reem Acra, Christian Siriano, and Prabal Gurung have also put their spin on a modest dressing classic — the long dress.
