Fashion brand BYBLOS presented their Fall Winter 2022.23 Collection, that was inspired by the work of two unique artists: Japanese illustrator Hajime Sorayama, and Turkish-American new media artist and designer Refik Anadol, on February 28th, during the recently finished Milan Fashion Week. The collection mirrors the feelings and colors of these artists’ work with strong and self-confident looks. For the season, the collection is defined by reflections, flashes of color, dreamy metallics, and colored studs with high-tech rock and sporty details.
“The inspiration by Sorayama was interpreted in the thermoformed mini-stretch Lycra seamless dresses that are highly resistant and impossible to scratch, extremely detailed with a high-tech 3D process, creating a new staple “easy to wear” black or colorful dress. A liquid metallic stretch jersey for evening dresses also references the feminine illustrations by Sorayama, along with logo belts, rock star inspired accessories in gun metal grey or silver, and the must have “mini dreamy” stone bags.
Prints that recreate a smooth 3D subtle pattern for “remembering the future” reflect the art of Anadol, seen in extra volume quilted jackets or jersey dresses with vitamin antioxidant colors (from blue/turquoise to green/lime, or from fuchsia/pink to flash orange), for biotech creatures coming from another galaxy. Velvet stretch with iridescent reflective dots in different colors create the new season’s suit. The Chroma interpretation is translated in melted and faded digital effects seen throughout.” – from Byblos
