It Takes Two

As the age-old saying goes “good things come in pairs.” This fall, the boldest pieces become a double entendre

This fall, V explores eye-catching looks from the top fashion houses presented in the Fall Winter 2022 season. Malika Louback & Leon Dame star as the perfect pair, sporting genderless garments from Prada, Burberry, Dior, and more. Styled by Anastasia Barbieri, Malika and Leon prance around in leather trench coats, flowy dresses, and fuzzy fur coats, showing off the versatility of each garment. V approaches this fall season by enforcing the idea that clothes have no gender. From New York to Paris, Fall 2022 was based around a theme of gender fluidity and reflecting the wearer’s intellect and beauty. We went back to the basics but elevated. Long A-line silhouettes were met with layers on top of layers. Monochrome looks from head to toe dominated as a key trend this season. Photographer Nathaniel Goldberg captures the dynamic duo in striking poses flaunting highly sought-after garments and accessories that are quintessential for the crisp autumn ahead.
