Fashion brand BORBONESE unveiled its Fall Winter 2023 Collection, that explores an idea of beauty to wear, on February 23rd, during the recently finished Milan Fashion Week. The collection was inspired by the soft colors and soft textures of beauty products, and it celebrates the beauty parlor as a place of empowerment and self-love. The key pieces include long coats and pencil skirts, small jackets, shirts, intarsia pullovers, dresses and tops suspended by chains covered in OP suede. The color palette reflects cosmetic palette – tones of powder and blush, amber, peacock and topaz of eye shadows, and burgundy of lipsticks. For the season designers Dorian Tarantini and Matteo Mena bring elegant precision and capture Milanese spirit.

“Chains dance like dense fringes at the hem of long skirts; jeans have a stitched seam instead of an ironed pleat. The cosmetic palette and the pervasive use of leather create synesthetic effects, which continue in the bags, both a complement and a seal to their conscious way of presenting themselves. As at the beauty counter, the colors express a variety of textures and consistencies ranging from classic OP suede in unexpected hues, to glossy naplak, to intensely tactile faux fur. The design of the accessories is amplified b the materials, creating a sensory kaleidoscope. Infinite is the new hobo with a sinuous profile, characterized by two intertwining chain links. Tweet is clean in design, but soft, with oversized metal details, while Reverse is a padded parallelepiped. Cortina has a rounded shape; in the small Tresor bag, the shoulder strap can be used as a necklace. The collaboration with Swarovski carries on, extending from 110 to include, this season, the Cortina. They are both made of nappa calfskin or recycled fabric, and decorated with Swarovski crystals and archival rivets.” – from Borbonese
