Spring-Summer 23 Style Focus: The new rusticity The - Fabrics - Leather
Men’s and women’s looks for SS23 take collections combining sustainability and fantasy to the next level.
Continuing to play a central role, natural and plant-based materials blithely invade the season’s fabrics. Staking out a neo-country vibe, fabrics are rich in gaily artificial decorative effects. Natural materials move beyond the casual sphere, and vaunt a sensory tactility to update tailored looks with crisp, papery cottons and the virtuoso versatility of linen.
Nature at work
A major direction sweeping all sectors for Spring-Summer 23, rusticity gains ground in women’s citywear too, imparting both nonchalance and authenticity. Bast fibres team with silk or lyocell for looser suits that shed their stiffness.
The season’s suits are also marked by a strong presence of tweed, whose rustic appearance has an undeniable appeal. These fantasy fabrics also grow more colourful.
