From Versace's homage to the '90s to Dior's exploration of classic Greek mythology, these are the best looks from the Cruise 2022 runway shows

Dior

Maria Grazia Chiuri presents a triumphant collection of white and gold, inspired by feminine power and freedom. Staged in the Panathenaic stadium built entirely of marble, this Cruise 2022 collection is a symphony of classic silhouettes, from tunics and peplum to flowing dresses made from a romantic combination of fabrics, including soulfi silk by Myrto Papadopoulos.

Versace

Versace is at it again, tapping into the youthful vibrance of eras passed. From the baggy puffer jackets with fleece to the tiny miniskirts of '90s supermodels, these pieces are plastered with a brightly-coloured refresh of the house's iconic codes. Our favourite detail is the return of the cellphone keychain, one of the hottest trends from that era which we hope comes back in a big way soon.

Louis Vuitton

Nicolas Ghesquière brings his trademark eclecticism for a futuristic and energetic collection staged at Axe Majeur, a monumental art installation in Cergy-Pontoise, France. Marching band-inspired jackets, oriental embroidery, puffy shoulders and an colourful remix of classic leather boots and accessories, the collection brims with joy and positivity.

Max Mara

Max Mara paints its Resort 2022 collection in the bright, pink-and-scarlet hues of geraniums that populate Ischia island off the coast of Italy and inspired Truman Capote's book, Local Colour. The artfully clashing patterns are splashed onto relaxed silhouettes to create ensembles that make us long for travel and island-living.
