The moment Lily Collins appeared on screen as Emily Cooper, everybody knew that Emily in Paris was going to be an easy binge with its sentimental storyline and captivating wardrobe. Causing a buzz with a showcase of unique outfit ensembles curated by Patricia Fields and Marylin Fitoussi, the second season of the Netflix show was no stranger to international fashion designers and haute couture favorites. Emily’s sartorial wardrobe has evolved this season into a colorful palette composed of runway-ready pieces from Valentino, to fashion staples by none other than Elie Saab.
In the first episode of season two, titled “Voulez-Vous Coucher Avec Moi?”, the protagonist champions a boxy green short-sleeved jacket from Elie Saab’s Spring 2021 read- to wear collection. Paired with a Versace multicolored ribbed knit polo and a vintage Thierry Mugler checkered skirt, Cooper’s outfit gave us a taste of the season’s style orchestra.
Besides Elie Saab, other well-known designers like Oscar de la Renta, Roger Vivier, Mary Katrantzou, La Perla, Vassilis Zoulias and Rianna + Nina have also got their fair share of screen time in the latest season of the feel-good show. In case you haven’t binge-watched it already, S2 of Emily in Paris brings back characters like Mindy and Camille, who play the role of Emily’s two best friends, summing up a trio of fashion icons serving us some major 2022 wardrobe inspo.
Not only did their outfits catch the eye of fans, they also were noted by online retailers, who were quick to partner with Netflix to feature looks and pieces from the show curated by luxury brands for a fun online shopping experience. Most importantly, one of the themes embraced by the wardrobe choices this season is sustainability, with couture looks offered by the Renaissance Project, run by a Paris-non profit organization that recycles cast-off outfits.
