The menswear fashion week has come to an end with the final brands presenting their menswear Spring/Summer 2023 collections this weekend. We discover some of the looks on the runway from Loewe, Celine and Paul Smith.
Loewe Menswear Collection, Behind the Scenes
This latest collection from Loewe, we are sure will be one that is remembered for some time. Not only did the brand create unique pieces of apparel, but it was able to fuse together nature and technology. Grass growing on fabric, birds flying and fish swimming on screens, this was a combination of art, real nature and digital production. This experimental process was developed in collaboration with Paula Ulargui Escalona, as plants were grown into the clothing, they needed perfectly timed maintenance to be runway ready. It was a poetic vision that expanded perceptions and boundaries.
For Paul Smith’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection, the brand revisits the 1980s art scene to offer a refined take on classic menswear silhouettes. From daywear to nightwear, imagined being worn on a hot summer’s day, the collection presents an effortless take on formal codes in shades of soft lavender, earthy brown, powder blue and sea coral. Artistic prints and floral patterns are airbrushed on for a hazy finish, seen on shirting and outerwear, capturing the humidity of summer and the essence of nature.
Celine returned to the runway and closed this year’s menswear spring/summer 2023 fashion week. The collection titled “Dysfunctional Bauhaus”, was presented at Palais De Tokyo as Creative Director, Hedi Slimane pays tribute to this museum and institution. The clothing collection made references to American rock star fashion, in the form of leather jackets, pointed-toe boots, ripped denim and of course, an American flag. The clothing also featured works of art from David Weiss, Alyss Estay and Renata Petersen.
