Haute couture channels myth, history and nature at Paris Fashion Week

New collections of famous designers were revealed at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week for Autumn/Winter 2023. The collections of designers Stefan Djokovic, Valeria, La Metamorphose, Zadi and Lena Erziak were characterized by a vague sense of symbolism, imagination and artistry, bringing to life the deepest human emotions and experiences.

Stefan Djokovic’s collection was a brilliant tribute to the mythical firebird, interpreted as a symbol of the autonomous woman. Vibrant colors of black, gold and red, orange, yellow and fuchsia realized the depth of the night and the intensity of light of the mythical creature. With intricate embroidery and a mix of solid and fluid fabrics, Djokovic’s collection visually embodied the legend of the Firebird.

The Fall/Winter 2023 collection was shown at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. Stefan Djokovic’s collection embodies the autonomy of women. Valeria blends the aesthetics of the royal court with modernity. La Metamorphose unveils nautical-inspired chiffon dresses and corsets. Lena Erziak’s collection, influenced by mycelium, emphasizes the need for connection.

Valeria, on the other hand, found inspiration in the glories of the past, especially in royal court costumes. Valeria’s designs strike a balance between past and present with asymmetrical designs and 100 percent natural materials, including wool, cotton and silk. A new knitting technique and unique details like upside-down zips and antique bronze snap buttons add an extra layer of authenticity to her collection.

La Metamorphose unveils a collection deeply inspired by the sea, which symbolizes strength, truth, hope and the mystery of human existence. With 25 models featuring chiffon dresses complemented by pearl-embroidered corsets and pantsuits embroidered with symbols of transformation, the collection beautifully captured the many hues of the sea. The show-stopper was a white dress that shimmered like the blue surface of water, symbolizing the beginning of new life.

Finally, Lena Erzyak captured the audience’s imagination with her collection, inspired by mycelium – the intricate network of filaments connecting the living world. The collection was a vibrant, visual vision that emphasized the importance of connectivity and balance in addressing conflict and the climate emergency. Highlights include handmade pleating, carefully stitched feathers and materials such as silk taffeta and duchess satin.

Overall, Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week 2023 was an exciting showcase of design talent and thematic depth, promising an Autumn/Winter season full of creativity and symbolism.
