With Covid-19 restrictions relaxed enough in Europe’s three major fashion capitals to welcome designers back from exile, shows in London, Milan and Paris chose surreal and original settings—from Prada’s Tetris-cubed space and Fendi and Versace’s “Fendace” jungle to Dior’s pop-’60s cubes and Saint Laurent’s smoke-machined view of the Eiffel Tower. Overall, much like designers in New York—where collections signaled a riotous, fringe-happy return to semi-normal social life—it was a swirl of positivity: “We needed something fun to happen,” Balenciaga designer Demna Gvasalia told Vogue. Scroll to see the best looks from London, Milan and Paris’s Spring/Summer 2022 Fashion Week, as selected by WSJ. Magazine’s fashion team.  For New York Fashion Week’s best looks, go here.
