WILLY CHAVARRIA unveiled his SS22 collection, “CUT DEEP,” on Sept. 8, inspired by his goals to cross the lines of traditional fashion norms and his visions of an amplified reality. The collection featured a wide variety of eye-catching looks, from baggy belted trousers, to leather racing jackets, to collared shirts, and more, in the setting of a lower Manhattan barbershop. His aim was to convey endurance and passion, pairing clothes that work with clothes that play, showing his wide variety of talents as a designer.

Chavarria’s SS22 collection seems to tackle retro flavors while keeping an eye out for the future, blending what some might call business casual with many quirks—exhibit A would be the baggy trouser pants that were created in khaki and black, but also red and bright pink.

At the forefront of his designs this year are collared shirts, some sheer and bold, some layered under bomber jackets, and some tucked into pants with a gold statement belt. He also designed sets of collared shirts with shorts, in both gray and plaid patterns, which really stood out among the rest of his shirts. Chavarria also seemed to be a fan of oversized tops, which were seen layered over pants in several different ways. With the trend of western styles coming into play this year, he channeled that energy for a few looks with cowboy hats, large belt buckles, and boots.

Though rarer, Chavarria did include a few casual looks with graphic tees, which were elevated when paired with a few layered chain necklaces. He also began to dive into the world of androgyny, designing a red top that could be thought of as a long shirt or dress, but open to the interpretation of the viewers.

Each outfit design was on point, down to the accessories, each garment secure and nothing out of place. Boldest of all was the decision to have some of the models who were wearing shorts wear black loafers with white knee socks, baring it all. We surely didn’t miss a single detail on these outfits—they simply just worked.

Partnering with Squarespace, select styles are now available for purchase on WILLYCHAVARRIA.COM. This partnership gives the option to donate to “It’s From the Sole,” which is a non-profit organization that provides footwear to the homeless in New York City.
