The shows culminated in Paris, with the newest collections from Chanel, Dior and Louis twinsburg milan fashion week spring summer 2023.In some truly masterful casting, Guccis Alessandro Michele enlisted 68 sets of identical twins for his spring/summer 2023 show.
Titled Gucci Twinsburg, the show was inspired by the designers mother and her twin sister,two extraordinary women who made their twinship the ultimate seal of their existence.As he explained,the grace of their duplicated and expanded love gave rise to my eternal fascination for the double, for the things that seem to reflect equal to themselves. The resulting collection was a tribute to the magic of twins and, in duplicating the clothes, an exploration of the way in which they seem to lose their status of singularity, are a reflection of each other, and yet still allow for the expression of individuality.Dior.Each Maria Grazia Chiuri collection is about opening up room for the creative imagination. the house wrote in the show notes. For this ready-to-wear show, she has adopted the image of a map of Paris from the houses archives.Through this, Grazia Chiuri traced her own path, between autobiography and reflection, and then nodded to the Tuileries Gardens, created according to Catherine de Medicis wishes.An Italian noblewoman who arrived at the French court in 1533, she is an emblematic figure of the relationship between women and power, and Maria Grazia Chiuri is fascinated by her political intelligence and the innovations she pioneered, such as heeled shoes, the corset, and Burano lace, which were all brought into the royal manufactures.
Fendi.fendi spring summer 2023 new york fashion week.Fendi opened New York Fashion Week this season with a show celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Baguette – and creative director Kim Jones, along with Silvia Venturini Fendi, enlisted an impressive line-up of collaborators for the occasion: Marc Jacobs, Sarah Jessica Parker and Tiffany & Co.I didnt want to do a traditional collection for the anniversary – rather it’s a celebration of a time, of the moment the Baguette became famous, said Jones.I relate that time to a sense of freedom in excess and fun – both qualities the Baguette possesses.The result was a joyful tribute to the iconic piece – as interpreted by each of the creative collaborators – spanning both clothing and accessories: from classic handbags to minuscule clutches, wristlets, pins and even jewellery.Saint Laurent.This season, Anthony Vaccarello was inspired by American choreographer Martha Graham, who was known for reshaping and revolutionising modern dance. He was particularly drawn to the tube dresses that her dancers wore in a 1930 production, and used these as the basis of much of the collection, sending clingy, draped, hooded dresses down the catwalk in a variety of earthy tones. There was also, of course, lots of leather in the form of floor-length coats, and he dialled up the glamour with sharp shoulders and killer accessories.Tom Ford.tom ford spring 2023.As to be expected, there was glamour galore on the Tom Ford catwalk, which amped up the sparkle and shine to close New York Fashion Week with a bang.There was metallic tailoring and an emphasis on lace underpinnings, with disco-ready dresses shimmering down the catwalk, while the grand finale saw the Hadid sisters close the show in head-to-toe sequins, with big hair, bigger heels and even bigger earrings.
Dolce & Gabbana.For spring/summer 2023, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana teamed up with Kim Kardashian – who they describe as the ultimate muse. With Kardashian playing the role of collection curator, the trio went through the brand's 90s and 00s archives, selecting some of her favourite pieces, and looks that they felt were inspired by the reality TV star – many of which were then slightly tweaked and repurposed to make a new collection exploring the most authentic DNA of Dolce & Gabbana.If it is true that fashion moves forward in search of ever-new expressions, when creativity is firmly rooted in its identity it knows how to transcend time and space, explained the show notes.Thus, even when it is rethought, repurposed, reinterpreted through the eyes of the present and the consciousness of the past, it retains its most genuine nature while managing to speak to many different generations.
Prada.prada milan fashion week womenswear springsummer 2023.For spring/summer 2023, Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons presented a collection designed to be a sequence of realities, with a focus on contrasting elements.There is an interrelationship between the raw and the sensual, between delicacy and roughness, explained the show notes. "The collection plays constantly with dissimilitude and paradox, shifting between different visions, separate realities.The pair also invited film director Nicolas Winding Refn to conceive an experience around the collection, which took the form of an immersive installation and a series of short films exploring the lives of women and modern femininity.
Bottega Veneta.bottega veneta spring summer 2023 milan fashion week.Elegance met utility in Matthieu Blazy's second collection for Bottega Veneta, which was focused on the quiet power of the everyday, set against a colourful catwalk designed by Italian architect Gaetano Pesce and featured a surprise star turn from Kate Moss in jeans and a checked shirt.The premise is simple the collection is about a contrast of characters on the go, invited to travel through Gaetano Pesce’s landscape, Blazy said. I wanted to design not just for one woman or one man, but for women and men. From the perverse banality of the everyday nubuck looks, to the eroticism of ultra-sophistication through tailoring, via the look of the bourgeois left of the past, to the souvenirs worn by a high-brow traveller... The whole world in a small room.
Salvatore Ferragamo.I wanted to pay tribute to Salvatores start by bringing in the culture of Hollywood but new Hollywood, Maximilian Davis said of his Ferragamo debut, unveiling a renaissance of the brands Hollywood history.Its ease and sensuality; its sunset and sunrise.The designer embraced flashes of fetishism, elevated everyday essentials and sleek, draped eveningwear. The collection was also inspired by the sparkling red shoes Ferragamo made for Marilyn Monroe in 1959, with crystals scattered throughout, while the Wanda bag (first introduced in 1988 and named after Salvatore’s wife) was reinterpreted in sleek new proportions.It was about looking into the archive and establishing what could be redefined to become relevant for today, he explained. I want each piece to feel playful, but also desirable as an object. To stand on its own.
Burberry.In what transpired to be Riccardo Tiscis final collection for the British fashion house (before announcing the appointment of Daniel Lee as chief creative officer), Burberry showed its September show in London a few weeks later than planned, having delayed out of respect for the royal family after the Queens death.The A-list catwalk saw Naomi Campbell, Karen Elson and Bella Hadid walk, while Kanye West sat on the front row.In summer, in Britain, the beach is a place of democracy, of community,Tisci said of his inspiration for SS23. It is where people from all cultures can join together in simple pleasures. I wanted to translate that ideology that emotion – to an entire collection. I wanted to express that spirit of togetherness and joy, that reality. We explored a new sensuality a consciousness of the body. I was inspired by the liberation and openness of youth, of people embracing their bodies and revealing them a pride in themselves, who they are, their identities. Their freedom.
Michael Kors.michael kors spring 2023.Michael Kors transported his front-row guests to the ultimate luxury getaway for his urban resort spring/summer 2023 show – a collection of sleek, city styling set against a backdrop of lush greenery.Urban resort to me is the best of both worlds, it’s the luxury and sleek elegance of city life with the laid-back glamour you find in the best resorts, says Michael Kors.This collection uses a lot of elements that you normally find on holiday—lots of white, lots of bareness, soft caftans, bare strappy sandals—mixed with the crisp tailoring and polish you need in an urban environment.There was an emphasis on movement and light, accentuated by shimmering liquid fabrics and high-shine sequins, providing the sort of pared-back glamour for which the brand has become known – designed to be worn in whichever luxurious destination you happen to be jetting off to next.Versace.versace milan fashion week womenswear spring summer 2023.If there was ever a sign that fashions obsession with Nineties and Noughties nostalgia isn't going anywhere, it's Paris Hilton closing the Versace show in a sparkling pink chainmail mini dress and fingerless gloves – a look that could have come straight from her wardrobe in The Simple Life era.She was the grand finale in a typically starry catwalk line-up – featuring everyone from Bella and Gigi Hadid to Irina Shayk and Emily Ratajkowski. The show saw a more gothic turn from Donatella Versace, who this season was inspired by rebellious women, blending darkly romantic bridal looks with slashed dresses and lots of leather. I have always loved a rebel, a woman who is confident, smart, and a little bit of a diva, the designer said.
Giorgio Armani.giorgio armani milan fashion week womenswear spring summer 2023.Giorgio Armani created a collection that was designed to soothe for the new season, inspired by an overall sense of lightness – both in terms of weightlessness and luminosity.Models showcased pieces in delicate and diaphanous fabrics, in colours that shifted from golden neutrals to purple and inky blue. Silhouettes were long and liquid, and evanescent like a desert mirage, explained the show notes. Ethereal, airy and fluid, any weight was both literally and metaphorically lifted, to embrace the female figure with sweet spirituality.
Stella McCartney.Blending fashion with art, Stella McCartneys latest collection featured the work of legendary Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara, inspired by his slogan Change The History. Minimal and sensual in design, the collection was made with 87 per cent conscious materials, the brands most responsible to date, while it also featured the luxury industrys first-ever garment made from regenerative cotton, a T-shirt.
Valentino.Entitled Unboxing, Valentino moved past the pink for spring/summer 2023 with Pierpaolo Piccioli presenting an idea that focused on individuality, referencing how couture collections are made. Almost every design featured a base (a T-shirt or tank top) made to match the models skin colour, created in stretchy fabrics so that they could fit a range of body shapes. This idea came about when thinking about the bustiers which are used to underpin couture gowns.Loewe.Jonathan Andersons latest collection for Loewe was based on the erotic tension and precision of an anthurium flower, which he described as a product of nature that looks like an object of design, and is treated as such. This was an example of natural fake, he said – things that can be found in nature that look fake, but are in fact real. Some references to this were very literal with dresses, tops and footwear adorned with three-dimensional floral details.
Givenchy.Presented in a show that focussed completely on womenswear, Matthew M. Williams explored a transatlantic clash of city wardrobes for Givenchys SS23 collection. More specifically, he looked at the cosmopolitan dress codes of France and America.This collection is an investigation into the dress codes that tie us together across mentalities and continents: two culturally specific wardrobes from very different places – Paris and Los Angeles... It's a study of the elements we associate with Parisian chic and California cool, and how those contrasts have integrated in the digital, borderless world.
Off-White.Off–White defined the grey area between black and white. It was the space where Virgil explored nuances and challenged notions of luxury through style and dress...It belonged to the culture as much as it was Virgils own, and over the decade since its founding, it has defined an era. Now, in our hands, we are entrusted with a legacy that we must handle with care. And in the year since his passing, one question prevailed: where do we go from here? Under Ibrahim Kamara, the houses new image and art director, Off-White presented a collection that was a celebration of Abloh's life and work, while also touching on an important pressing issue facing America today, abortion rights. Off-White collaborated with artist Jenny Holzer, launching T-shirts that will raise money for Planned Parenthood.Even when dreaming up new worlds, we must speak about the harsh realities of our present everyday lives, the show notes read.Balmain.With Cher on the catwalk and Kylie Jenner on the front row, Olivier Rousteing made a splash with his latest show, which he named The Balmain Festival.It is this houses annual celebration of the beautiful possibilities that might be achieved by combining the best in music and fashion.So, to close this year’s festival, we couldnt possibly think of a better artist than Cher. After all, she’s been making it clear to everyone — ever since the Sixties — just how powerful the perfect combo of those two arts can be.
Proenza Schouler.proenza schouler runway spring 2023.Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez were inspired by water as a symbol of life for their spring/summer 2023 show, with a collection also heavily influenced by their personal histories.The sensuous and fiery qualities of Lazaros Latin roots coupled with the pragmatism and grit of Jack’s American experience blend to create a narrative at once effervescent and urban, she show notes explained. The clothes accentuated the contours of the body, with figure-hugging knitwear, ruffles to add volume and fringing to exaggerate movement.
