Fashion house ALEXANDER MCQUEEN unveiled its Fall Winter 2023 Collection, that explores beauty and power, on March 4th, during the ongoing Paris Fashion Week. The collection examines human anatomy, the anatomy of clothing, and the anatomy of flower, while focusing on cut, proportion and silhouette. It revisits construction of clothes before subverting it and turning it upside down.
FALL WINTER 2023.24 WOMENSWEAR COLLECTIONS
The foundations of fashion, cut on the body and inspired by the body within. The classic subverted: turned inside out and upside down. Volume is neat – strict – or exploded. Garments are dissected: slashed, sliced and twisted. Shoulders are strong. Waists are narrow. Heeled trousers elongate the leg: the bumster in reverse. The most prominent motif in the collection is the orchid, in its rarer forms cultivated but, after the daisy, the most common flower. It thrives in the air, resists being rooted and grows in the wild. Extraordinarily beautiful and infinitely adaptable, the orchid mimics both predator and prey. In the language of flowers, the orchid is a symbol of love. – Sarah Burton
