The summer 2023 that awaits us will be between dream and reality, between lights and shadows: a remix of trends from the fashion week catwalks

Fashion is not just clothes and accessories entrusted to a taste or a vision, but it is also the storytelling of what happens to us and we live. How did the designers of the last fashion weeks imagine the coming summer of 2023 ? Surely among the trends emerge dreams , sensuality , a rediscovered desire for beauty and playfulness narrated by graceful colors, semi-transparent fabrics that discover – after the comfy, over and covered necessary to survive the years of the pandemic – but in a play of light and shadow , those of our times, convinced with hi-tech garments, jackets and aggressive leather outfits, as if to act as safety equipment. From New York to Milan, passing London and Paris, next summer's symphony definitely plays these dissonant notes.

Summer 2023 trends: sensuality between dreams and dark shadows, from Alberta Ferretti to Versace

A certain dark soul was breathed in Milan on the Gucci and Versace catwalks in particular, in stark contradiction with the bright and dreamy openings of Alberta Ferretti and Fendi. Draped dresses but with a texture so light as to be sewn on in cut-out games and skirts that parade in a sensual and dynamic dance, the trend of next summer favors a tight-fitting dress but at the same time that shows off in movement.

This sensuality can also be felt in the Versace house but less innocent, so from the magical and abstract whiteness we move instead to a sacred and profane style where it is the mix and match in dark nuances that prevails: satin tops embellished with lace to combine with miniskirts tight crotches and a leather jacket, while the naked dress is stolen directly from the underwear wardrobe, in a colored version and to be combined with a pair of socks.

Leather outfits, the revenge of black, military looks: from Off-White to Dolce and Gabbana

There are two great revenge that we will see next summer: the leather jacket , generally put aside at the beginning of spring when you prefer the denim jacket, to wear not necessarily in black , even if it is precisely this basic color that steals the scene in a season that traditionally puts it aside, if not reserving it for special occasions.

So you no longer feel out of season if your summer wardrobe is teeming with black outfits, as well as if you are developing a penchant for leather, imitation leather and derivatives, because trends are moving towards new geographies: the fluorescent blue of Off-White with its hi-tech garments, outfits and leather accessories tell us about a style that travels between the military and the motorcycle , perhaps because summer as well as autumn is no longer the same as always.

Black was also the predominant color of the Dolce and Gabbana fashion show. Thanks to the hand of Kim Kardashian, only the presence of the animal, jewel and denim costumes, created a detachment in the alternation on the catwalk of basically dark silhouettes, which among very sensual garments and rigorous and elegant total looks told of a summer from live with caution.
