Each year, a fresh set of It-pieces arrive on the fashion scene that are scooped up by all of the insiders. For the year ahead, that will be no exception. While we’re still just getting started in 2022, there are already some major designer It-items that have arrived at cult status and will define fashion this year. Here, I’m focusing on pieces that are having a moment, but also have serious staying power.
Just because they’re *it* doesn’t necessarily mean they’re brand new, so I’ve included everything from the just-dropped designer pieces everyone’s talking about to luxury heritage pieces that are now more popular than ever. Ahead, the 10 It-pieces that are already defining fashion in 2022—from the designer sneakers that are nearly sold out everywhere to the platforms that are about to be huge to the iconic bag that’s somehow cooler than ever.
