Fashion brand KHAITE presented their Resort 2023 Collection that fuses the eternal allure of escape with the enegry of New York City. The collection brings the balance of opposites such as sharp and soft, past and future, masculine and feminine. Modern looks feature flashes of nostalgia: the darker, denser glamour of the late ’70s and early ’80s. Star of the lookbook is supermodel Mica Argañaraz captured by fashion photographer Hanna Tveite. In charge of styling was Vanessa Traina, with set design from Nicholas des Jardins, and casting direction by Piergiorgio Del Moro. Beauty is work of hair stylist Joey George, and makeup artist Cyndle Komarovski.
“The louche elegance of Studio 54, swathed in lamé and captured on black-and-white film. After-dark worlds where worlds collided. These reference points inform a new, 21st-century hedonism that emerges through the moody gleam of black sequins, bustier bodices, knitwear shot through with Lurex sparks, and miniskirts bisected by two-way zippers. Embellishment, in forms ranging from hand-applied Swarovski crystals to cashmere-lined fringe, is integral, not an afterthought.” – from Khaite
