The Fall Winter 2023 Story:
Today, luxury brands are required to cultivate a collection’s attention to lightweight materials and lightness of construction. The attention to detail signifies a Maison’s design philosophy converted into garments.
This season, there is a playful take on the fusion of accessories and garments that embrace a relaxed sensibility elevated through historical signatures and principles of comfort. For example, established luxury brands, emerging designers and buzzy technical players alike mixed relaxed apparel with sportswear at the forefront of the fall collections. In 2023, American consumers choose to celebrate the pioneering spirit of drawing inspiration from a brand’s heritage while looking to the future of merging style categories.
Beauty that becomes functional: soft, comfortable garments with a refined allure and, at the same time, with a perfect fit for all silhouettes. From production to the selection of raw materials, from attention to detail to style, up to choices in the field of sustainability, thus becoming a guarantee of values and virtues and excellence and the best quality materials and workmanship.
The new vision inspires discovery across various style platforms through the personal relationships the retailer fosters with its clients. The customer-centric mindset fuels acceleration by elevating and strengthening the brand and customer experience through every touchpoint. In short, a brand’d history and core values have become just as important to the consumer as the creative designs.
An abundant number of brands draw inspiration from the their rich history while driving innovation to strengthen the luxury retailer’s high-fashion positioning moving forward and breaking boundaries while drawing upon the magic, heritage, dedication to customer relationships.
Womenswear continues the study of new propositions of femininity today. A mixture of strength and gentility. It is a reflection on refinement, celebrating subtle details and nuance over bold gestures. The power and clarity of reduction with a strong emphasis on rigorous new tailoring silhouette, narrow and elongated. A feeling of lightness and fluidity is explored through airy proportions and soft shapes.
A focus on fabrication. The sensory richness of clothes; the iridescent shimmer of metallic paillettes, furry textures on sandals and flowing safari shirts. Intense depth of colour; rust, ecru, lilac, ink and olive tones. Parkas in apricot, citrine and mint rooted in fine craftsmanship imbued with the soul of the Maison’s history.
