Fashion house MILA SCHÖN presented the Fall Winter 2023.24 Womenswear Collection, with a presentation held on February 23rd, during the ongoing Milano Fashion Week. Creative designer Marc Audibet is the epitome of conceptual elegance and is therefore the natural choice to bring new life to the legacy of Mila Schön, with whom he shares so many subtle connections. A collection that is timeless but also very grounded in the present. As Brancusi used to say: Simplicity is the sister of intelligence. Audibet has made this quote his guiding star. He views simplicity as the outcome of a meticulous and precise construction to achieve an aesthetic as far away as possible from extreme consumerism. Clothes and accessories made to last, that shape a new art of living a simply contemporary dimension.
FALL WINTER 2023.24 COLLECTIONS
Grandeur and rigour. Clothing and decor. Planning and passion. Long-term vision and practical pragmatism. Imagination and realism. Temperament and discretion. Experimenting and streamlining. Fashion has the ability to penetrate and distil concepts from a variety of artistic and architectural inspirations.
Marc invented stretch fibres in mono and doubled versions, Mila the mythical doubled fabric. A parallel path to uncover a form of design that enables a healthy and joyous relationship between a woman’s body and the clothes she wears. An elegance that comes across in every line: this is their common, indelible, contribution to fashion. Proof that good ideas, in design as elsewhere, stand up unyielding to time and seasons. Their research is nurtured by “reductionism”, a term which is derived from Latin and entails breaking down a complex phenomenon into its building blocks. Working by subtraction, to reach the essence in the combination of lines and forms in sustaining a body in motion – a creation that tends towards the essential as opposed to the spectacular. – from Mila Schön
Just like me, Mila envisioned a wardrobe for an international, demanding, and refined clientele. Her models were the essence of simplicity, matched with rigorous and flattering cuts, uplifting the spirit and therefore freeing the body. Contemporary art inspired her to create modern, efficient clothing to bring out an intelligent form of beauty. – Marc Audibet
