Today we are happy to come back to the most unexpected fashion collaborations of the last 2 months.
Y/Project and Jean Paul Gaultier
A vintage air, vibrant colors, trompe l'oeil, graphic lines, here is what we found during the Y/Project show at Paris fashion week for the fall/winter 2022-2023 collection.
Through this collection, Gleen Martens paid homage to Jean Paul Gaultier by presenting feminine and masculine silhouettes reinterpreting an iconic print used by the couturier in the 90s. For this collection the Y/project designer plays on the layering of dresses, shirts, sweaters, coats to give movement, the effect of which is accentuated with the trompe-l'oeil which suggests naked bodies.
This collaboration also extended to haute couture with corsets that were all the rage for the spring/summer 2022 collection. Gleen Martens totally managed to put in this collection while keeping the glamorous spirit of Jean Paul Gaultier.
Dior and Birkenstock: when chic meets comfort
During Paris Fashion Week for the Men's Fall Winter 2022-2023 collection, Kim Jones presented her revisits to the German brand 's iconic models: the Milano sandals and the Tokio mules.
These 2 models display a utilitarian style, a comfortable, functional and elegant look. The designer was particularly inspired by the love of Dior and the house for gardening, by adding floral embroidery on the Tokio model. These models can be found from June 2022 in taupe, gray, brown and beige colors.
Superplastic and Gucci: when fashion goes to NFTs
It's been a few months now that many luxury brands have launched into NFTs, and so it's Gucci the latest to launch a limited series of digital collectibles.
