Pastel hues, like cool, fragrant dawns. Flowers that bloom on happy days. United Colors of Benetton dresses Spring Summer 2022 in the brand’s signature cheerfulness, knitwear made with recycled yarns (or with re-used polyester). As always, keywords are quality and comfort, relaxed fits, wearability in all sizes, and an Italian chic that needs no explanation. An example? The Iconic rhinestone women’s tshirts, the dreamy prints from Escape to Rome and clean cuts and breezy silhouettes of Endless Seaside. It’s an endless game of rustic, pop and country chic mixing and matching that features knitwear worked in rib, lattice or cablestitch, and beaded embroidery, used to embellish organic, contemporary-cut color-blocked tricot topwear. Floral, maxi, sixties and psychedelic all-over prints feature on dresses, suits and shirts, to be worn with delightful blackberry-stitch pullovers. Ruffled dresses, tops and shirts, with elegance and grace. Summer hues are strong and decisive: fantastic pinks, brilliant greens, deep oranges and pop reds. This is practical fashion to wear in town or just as easily at the seaside, on vacation, on a boat. Clean lines for tank tops, midi skirts, poplin tops with puff sleeves and shirt dresses to wear belted at the waist. Everything must be cool and fresh, in light gauze and viscose for dusters and wide trousers.
There is no shortage of stripes – multicolored – on sleeveless Tshirts and boxy-cut striped cotton pullovers. For romantics, there is the poplin maxi dress with buttons, low necks and flounces at the hem. Also, a highlight are dresses in a linen blend, light as a sea breeze. United Colors of Benetton means Italian chic: feminine embroidery on cotton and ruffles. Bare shoulders, freshness, a hankering for the seaside and freedom. The summer dress is a must-have: easy and practical, with floral prints, bows and spectacular printed skirts.
This collection also features delicate “macaron” shades in cottons. Sweaters, hoodies, joggers and Bermuda shorts: all come with basic, minimal cuts and are good for the environment. And last – but not least – are the 100% BCI Cotton Iconic Benetton T-shirts across prints and rhinestone embellishments.
For the United Colors of Benetton man, SS22 focuses on a heritage style, made of cottons and light fabrics in earthy colors like olive, khaki, beige and sienna. There’s something for everyone: Bright iconic color blocking, cargo shorts, nautical striped T-shirts with messaging and shirts with tropical prints with relaxed-look and fit pants.
A very cool, urban fashion, being at ease in spring and summer in any city. These looks are combined with eco-sustainable materials and stretchable fabrics, for example; Denims with Flexi Waist.
A sophisticated, agile vibe, which uses shades of navy and lead, enlivened by touches of bright yellow. It all adds up to an understated masculinity with a strong cosmopolitan streak. Must haves include printed shirts, Lyocell Linen Lounge Pants and Striped Tees. The athleisure look is prominent, featuring interlock trackpants with graphic branded crew necks tees. Classic striped Polo tees and shirts come in fluid colors: pastel is as much for “him” as is blue. . Denims are authentic with sustainability at its core. The entire denim line uses BCI cotton and EcoGold fiber, that is, biodegradable polyester.
Made with beautiful materials that respect the environment. Welcome, summer!
