Top trends
for the autumn/winter 2023 season

For discerning fashionistas and for those who simply like to keep up with the latest fashion trends.
Here is a review of designs that must be present in your wardrobes this season.

Power suit
For the office and everyday use

The look inspired by the corporate dress code will be one of the hottest trends in the coming season. Although the designers haven't given up on experimenting with fashion, they focused on improving classic and well-known silhouettes in this year’s collections. They embraced every wardrobe staple like blazers, suit pants and pencil skirts and rediscovered their potential by playing with form and even colour.

The Saint Laurent collection is the one that has particularly stolen our hearts. Anthony Vaccarello opted for elegant blazers with oversized shoulders and matching pencil skirts. He alternated between black, navy blue, white and graphite, presenting 14 variations on the theme of the office look, confusingly reminiscent of the feminine workwear of the 1980s. Designs in black and white were predominant in the collections of Alexander McQueen and Dolce & Gabbana, while grey - in a rather uncommon edition - appeared on oversized models by Balenciaga and... Diesel.

Dries Van Noten and the UK’s darling Stella McCartney were among the designers who indulged in patterns. The Belgian chose to cover his works with floral prints, while McCartney decided to employ autumn’s most popular pattern - the check.

Wasp waist

After last year’s dominance of low-rise models that accentuate the hips, it’s time for designs that emphasize the waist and bring our figures visually closer to fashion's most covetable hourglass shape. With an enthusiastic look at the collections of influential brands, we can confidently claim that the versatility of this trend is so great that it will make creating both minimalistic and daring styles a lot easier. The choice is entirely up to you then.

The forms by Balmain, Bottega Veneta and Versace are the most notable. As for the first brand, we experienced designs that combine two trends in one, since Olivier Rousteing enriched extravagant tops and blazers with this season’s most desirable peplum-inspired constructions. Matthieu Blazy offered dresses with an elongated waist, topped off with a shape reminiscent of designs from the 17th and 18th centuries, while Donatella Versace launched a series of form-fitting models, which additionally balanced the proportions of the silhouette thanks to the use of shoulder padding.

As we seen in the collections of Alexander McQueen, Alaïa or Dolce & Gabbana, a simple belt can also be the waist-highlighting element. Sarah Burton and the French fashion house’s creative director opted for a leather-crafted version that is not always as classic as it might seem, while the Italian duo turned it into a metallic corset-like form, adorning ultra-sensual dresses in a gold hue.

Woke up like this

Although nightwear-inspired designs were already seen last season, this autumn, this trend is set to revamp. Seductive transparencies and lace will still be en vogue but on a level with items reminiscent of cosy and comfortable pyjamas. What does this mean in practice? We will still choose lavish and richly detailed outfits for the big evening events, but in the morning we would slip into voluminous wool jumpers, striped shirts and shoes that look like home slippers.

Let’s start with this casual look that has mainly appeared at Bottega Veneta, Ferragamo and Lanvin. We liked the proposal of the first fashion house the most. We still admire the show-opening silhouette in a semi-sheer chemise, the cotton pyjama sets and oversized sweaters, which the creative director paired with thick socks.

Which brands have intrigued us with this sensual interpretation? We can answer without any hesitation: Jacquemus, Gucci and Nensi Dojaka. The 18th-century-inspired lingerie chemises and transparent creations in white by Simon Porte, the ultra-colourful transparencies juxtaposed with tights from the Italian brand, and the Albanian designer`s dresses finished with lace and tulle inserts are our favourites.

Metallic gloss
from head to toe

Shimmering sequins and extravagant fringes will give way to items with a metallic finish this coming season. The fall collections of our favourite fashion houses show that this trend is not just about quality, but most of all - quantity. The most important rule regarding evening wear that guided the creators and you should follow too, is the more the better. Here are the brands that will help you.

If you are fond of colours, take inspiration from Ferragamo and Rick Owens this autumn. Maximilian Davis, current creative director of the Italian brand, swathed dresses in red and navy blue, while the American designer, who is adored by avant-garde fans, chose lime green, pink and maroon. Silvery and gold tones - rated as the most desirable by trendsetters - made a big impact during Blumarine, Dolce & Gabbana and Dries Van Noten catwalk shows. The brand known for its Y2K aesthetic found the perfect balance between these two colours, while the two others focused on gold. Gold is used not only on dresses and tops but also on blazers, coats and jackets.

Comfort
comes first

Comfortable, warm and most of all - pleasant to the touch. The sense of comfort is doing great in fashion and will be something much more than a trend in the coming season. As we already mentioned, this year’s collections are primarily a reinterpretation of familiar cuts and textures, and the faux furs, refined velvets or sheepskin textures we are now discussing are by no means an exception.

Even though timeless shades are always a safer option - as brands such as Alaïa and Chloé have proved - this autumn we encourage you to experiment a bit with shape. We, for example, were impressed by Jonathan Anderson`s models in classic colours, but with an unexpected design. The fur tops with a central pocket from the collection of his own brand and the fleshy Loewe coats looked stunning. To our surprise, the Jil Sander duo didn’t fall behind and even managed to woo the staunch minimalists with shiny grey dresses and jumpers.

On the other hand, the hearts of the most daring fashionistas were stolen by Gucci. Every possible colour appeared on the catwalk of the Italian brand, but some of the designs that stuck with us the most include an emerald sweater and neon pink and blue fur coats.
