Inviting an artist to design the set of a fashion show often brings a magical aura to a collection, turning this commercial event into a meaningful artistic one. This season, the fashion designer Matthieu Blazy invited the architect and designer Gaetano Pesce to create the space for the Spring/Summer 2023 collection he presented last Saturday, September 24th, in Milan. The ephemeral artwork unfolds in an imaginary pop-colored landscape made of a resin-poured floor and 400 cotton chains, which were also dipped in resin and customized with drawings in some cases. This piece of art delightedly celebrates the singularity and individuality of each person. “We are all different and this is our defining quality – otherwise, we are just a copy. We are all originals and this is one of the themes of my design”, Gaetano Pesce said.

 

 

After a well-acclaimed debut collection presented last February, Matthieu Blazy keeps exploring the meaning and intrinsic value of luxury with women’s and men’s wardrobes designed for all occasions. Pragmatic, playful, and extremely elegant, Matthieu Blazy’s most sober designs are in fact very sophisticated. As with the opening look of the Fall/Winter 2022-2023 show, the everyday pieces are made of leather or suede and adorned with ultra-realistic prints, like the checked shirt, jeans, or chino, which the artistic director defines as archetypes. The fox-printed goat fur coat follows the same pattern. The uniforms of working girls and boys become bolder when declined in shiny, sometimes printed, leathers, but are also more sensual, with split cuts, drapes, and subtle necklines. Then, Matthieu Blazy’s insolent sense of cut shines through in the timeless yet contemporary little black dresses, wool trousers, blazers, or overcoats. When it comes to evening gowns and suits, the Belgian-French designer’s approach once again grows away from tradition, with daring flashy colors used on precious fabrics, futuristic patterns, all-over fringes, complex three-dimensional embroideries, and suggestive see-throughs, as an invitation to glorify one’s own singularity.

    Loewe grows plants on the pieces of its Spring-Summer 2023 men’s collection

    Since 2013, head of Loewe’s artistic direction Jonathan Anderson has been redefining a look that is both playful and meaningful. For this Spring-Summer 2023 menswear collection, the 37- year-old Irishman, who also is the artistic director of his own label JW Anderson, has focused on paradoxical notions as a creative thread – the real and digital reproduction, nature and technology, the fusion of the organic and of the manufactured. In a virginal white space, silhouettes are unveiled as much as the surprising technical processes used for this season. Reworking in controlled shapes and cuts a wardrobe of essentials available in a range of neutral colors, the bombers, hoodies, and polo shirts echo the shirts, shorts, and waxed jackets, which introduce several processes improved in collaboration with Spanish designer Paula Ulargui Escalona. While a coat is covered with screens, other pieces merge with nature. Surprisingly enough, plants have been grown on trousers, coats, jumpers, and shoes even. Although it took twenty days to reach the desired level of growth, the poetic incorporation of nature in a “man- made” collection leaves us wondering about our fashion consumption and our relationship with nature.
