Richard Quinn Fall Winter 2022-2023 London. Review by Eleonora de Gray, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
Young English designer Richard Quinn recycling and recycling again, his fabrics, his looks from season to season. What’s new? Nothing.
He graduated from Central Saint Martins, in 2018 he produced his “famous” collection, lots of flowers, puffy silhouettes with little hint of BDSM. And in 2018 he made Queen Elizabeth II to believe that he is a new Alexander McQueen, time got frozen for this designer, so as his designs. In 2018 he made it to the Met Gala in New York, in 2020 he took a place in the Moncler Genius project. Richard Quinn repeats and recycles his own 5 looks over and over again.
And 4 years passed, and year after year Richard Quinn shows the same collection, as the previous others, the same fabrics, the same looks. What happened? That’s it? In 4 years all creativity wore off already? Or probably Richard Quinn doesn’t know that designers create different pieces for different seasons, and not repeatedly do the same look over and over again?
This is design of Richard Quinn from 2018. And then we see the same designs and looks in 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and it goes for 2023… how creative indeed. Anything new we can expect from this designer, or we are going to watch them over and over again like on a broken record for the next 10 years? How boring…
