Classic sportswear, glamorous beauty and sheer revealing are the main themes of Fashion Week this season. As designers adapt to the post-COVID world, many have looked to the past while others focused on the present for their spring 2023 collection, resulting in a wide selection of outfits for those who want to wear them. Customers crave variety. At Victor Germaud, for example, the collection nods to influential Geoffrey Beene and Stephen Burrows in clean lines, simple fabric use and minimalist silhouettes. Puma returns to New York Fashion Week fueled innovation in the American sportswear movement, with a dynamic line of clothing envisioned by female creative director June Ambrose. Tory Burch continues to explore the sport theme with her tribute to Claire McCardell, but her collection also includes blouses and sheer dresses that exude youthfulness.
Like every season, denim fabric re-emerged on the runway, avant-garde and wearable. These have been seen at Area, Dion Lee, and Masha Popova, among other designers. Joseph Altuzarra launch his own product on denim, send a dress, a maxi dress and baggy jeans down the runway.
Elsewhere, the aesthetic has been much more festive. At Tom Ford, the catwalk has been transformed into a retro-inspired dance floor featuring sashaying models in sparkly gowns and sequined coats to separate. Other designers have followed the evening gown theme, seen in 16Arlington embroidered evening gowns or Khaite strapless evening gowns. Finally, tassel detailing made its way onto a number of catwalks, from Jason Wu to London-based label Feben.
