At the Louvre’s Cour Carrée, in a playful and colorful setting, the Louis Vuitton Men's studio presents a Spring-Summer 2023 collection that combines the philosophy and legacy of its late artistic director Virgil Abloh, who died in November 2021. As rapper Kendrick Lamar delivers an intense performance, silhouettes reinvest traditional tailoring through loose or baggy cuts, flashy colors, and bold details, such as XXL buttons, three-dimensional embroidery, and childish patterns. Standing as a celebration of imagination and creativity, this show closes a chapter and paves the way for a new era.

    Rick Owens sets fire to the Palais de Tokyo with his Spring-Summer 2023 Men’s show

    Despite the burning sun shining on the Palais de Tokyo on Thursday, June 23rd , Rick Owens exorcised our fear of the end of the world induced by pandemics, wars, and global warming, through a breathtaking performance – three flaming spheres like burning suns placed above the fountain crashed quietly one after the other into the water. In this apocalyptic atmosphere, the Californian designer composed a collection inspired by a trip he took to Egypt, and more precisely to Edfu, the Ptolemaic temple of Horus. Tulle dresses designed to protect from flies are worn over silk shirts wrapped around the body, while shoulders widen and loose light shirts and pants float on the silhouettes. Iridescent pieces evoke beetles’ wings, the work on the denim in collaboration with the Parisian label Paradoxe makes them appear faded and damaged, and the nylon is more resistant than ever. Although very personal, Rick Owens’ Spring-Summer 2023 Men's collection moves us at the deepest level, encompassing our fear of extinction and our desire to survive for a few minutes only.

    Chanel celebrates tweed in its fall-winter 2022- 2023 collection

    “We followed the footsteps of Gabrielle Chanel along the River Tweed, to imagine tweeds in the colours of this landscape. Like that of a long pink coat mottled with blue and purple, or a burgundy suit with a delicate gold shimmer. This is what Gabrielle Chanel would do on her walks through the Scottish countryside: she would gather ferns and bouquets of flowers to inspire the local artisans for the tones she wanted”, Virginie Viard explains about her fall-winter 2022-2023 collection for Chanel. At the Grand Palais Éphémère, Chanel’s artistic director and designer displays a brand-new ready-to-wear collection that once again celebrates the Scottish carded wool and emblem of the fashion house: tweed. As for the rest of the collection, wellingtons, jackets in psychedelic colours, black velvet trousers, and tight skirts shine a light on the free creative spirit of the Swinging London during the 1960s in the UK.

    For the first time ever, the Musée d’Orsay in Paris opened its doors to the fashion sphere to host Louis Vuitton fall-winter 2022-2023 runway show. This season, Nicolas Ghesquière pays tribute to the rebellious youth with oversized silhouettes. Baggies are made with corduroy and thick wool and worn with bomber jackets, blazers with spectacularly large shoulders, or XXL shirts. When they’re not designed after polos, the little dresses remind us of schoolgirls’ pinafores. Along with floral patterns from the 70s, black and white photographs taken by David Sims are printed on several pieces, while large stripes inspire grungy looks.

    "I really wanted to create a synthesis of powerful sophisticated femininity, with an interplay of multiple American and Parisian influences, sports and craftsmanship. Next to her stands a contemporary man with an instinct for chic nonchalance. On the runway, both are grounded by a sense of reality," Matthew M. Williams explained about his fall-winter 2022-2023 collection for Givenchy. He imagined outfits in which the house's couture heritage meets his own more streetwear world. Faded jerseys were layered, sequins and pearls adorned denim, tailoring was boxy, while little transparent silk dresses were delicately hand-embroidered or decorated with ruffled flounces. There were also wool dresses with ruffles inspired by the world of sports, in spectacular colours and mesh. Coats held a special place in the collection, in XXL versions that hugged the body, worn nonchalantly over a sweater and straight trousers, while for men, Givenchy revived urban and casual silhouettes.
