My favourite looks from Fashion Weeks for spring 2023. In black and white
So good to have the fashion weeks back on track in all their glam & glory! Therefore, I had to make my list – list of favourite shows and looks. But looks that I would wear. Of course, there are all in black and white. With a hint of blue or cream. Here hey are – my favourite looks from Fashion Weeks spring 2023.

This year, London took us by surprise with some unusual shows and a very eclectic street style scene, Milan was more glamours than ever, New York had a lot of anniversaries to put on the scene (Proenza Schouler its 20th, Fendi celebrated 25 years of the iconic Baguette bag, and Puma’s 75 years) and Paris, oh, Paris… beautiful as always (sorry I missed you, next time I will be there, for certain!).
From New York shows – Proenza Schouler and Michel Kors got my attention. Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez gave a new name to sensuality and joy; I love the jumpsuit with enormous ruffless on the sleeves! Meanwhile, Michael Kors did what he knows to do best: to put on the catwalk the original American jet set vibe mixed with some office (but yet sexy) elements.
At Milan, Jil Sander was, as always, minimalist at its best, in black & white, layerings and clean cuts. At Ferragamo, the young designer Maximilian Davis made his debut and he tried to “re-energize” Ferragamo fashion house, while at Missoni… surprise, surprise! The new creative director, Filippo Grazioli gave up the colours and tried the Missoni iconic stripes only in black and white for some part of the show. The same version of the sleek silhouette of the season was proposed on repeat, with variations only in lengths, which were either midi or über-mini. Very nice done!
London was a bit darker this season. At Burberry, apart from the iconic patterns of the house I found some black & white silhouettes just perfect to be put on the wish list. Another show that caught my attention: Erdem, with a collection inspired directly from the British fashion history: all the kinds of sweeping shapes, prints, and embellishments, trench-ballgown with a train, hems, a touch of antique-contemporary undone-ness.
Paris Fashion Week, as always, brought in the capital of France a lot of talented designers. I will mention here only four show (from the main calendar) even I saw so so many young brands and new talented designers! Saint Laurent was one of the public favourites shows (and attracted a lot of celebrities in the front row). Love the silhouettes! Stella McCartney put on the stage a 87 percent sustainable collection, with some cuts inspired by the history of the house, while Dries van Noten collection was purely breathtaking, with transparency and lightness contrasting with precision in masculine jackets and mousseline skirts. My favourite though? Sacai collection: I put on the wish list all the items (at least all in black and white). Pleats are the main motto at Sacai this season for the designer Chitose Abe, and we are about to find them in pants, skirts, tuxedo jackets and so on.
