BACK TO BLACK

The looming change in seasons brings not only a shift in weather but also a transformation in our wardrobes. As with every year it is the silver lining easing us away from the days of golden sunlight and into new trends and fall fashions. This time around its less about oxbloods and oranges but something darker. Currently, multiple global crises are impacting our fashion choices and made it onto the mood boards of almost every big designer. Furthermore, the fall trends indicate a move towards more business-like attire and less romantic detailing. The era of excessive sparkle is giving way to clean lines, sheer fabrics and understated elegance. Black, with its eternal allure, is resurging, finding its place in blazers, coats, and other statement pieces.

Fall 2023 is all about muted tones, perfect to exude sleek elegance. Black, navy and hues of brown take center stage, channeling a sense of timelessness. The core ideas are versatility and long-term investments. Therefore, shoulders are structured and hems reach around the mid-thighs of the wearer. Dresses can easily be worn for daytime and nighttime while long black coats are mad to be passed from parent to daughter and further down the line. These basic yet sophisticated pieces can easily be elevated with statement-making accessories for a more opulent look. These can be changed from year to year, keeping these staples in rotation.

NENSI DOJAKA

Nensi Dojaka trained to become a designer with a focus on lingerie. This education can be spotted in every design she puts out – just like this one. Here sheer panels are paired with a non-see-through fabric, all of which is held up by delicate straps and a subtle chain. It looks like it could have been part of her 2021 collection, due to the versatile combination of brown and black allowing almost every kind of shoe to be paired with the garment.

SAINT LAURENT | S

This dress is a slay. The black mini dress on first glance looks like an overly long tank top but is so much more. With its clean silhouette, it is not only a no-brainer for any occasion but also perfectly flattering on every wearer. With elongating sleeve cutouts, the garment stretches the silhouette while the knitted material tones down the garment. Subtly woven through silver threads give the piece the last something special – a perfect piece for every occasion.

ROSIE ASSOULIN | 8

This elevated staple is created out of a stiff taffeta. The garment retains a beautiful shape, bordering on avant-garde, as the upper part of the garment seems to consist of a shawl delicately wrapped around the wearers’ shoulders. At the left shoulder, it can be tied for a dramatic effect or left open for a more laid-back look. Lastly the long sleeves balance out the wearers’ bare shoulders to create a flattering garment with unexpected details.

SONIA RYKIEL | 42

Best known for her knitwear, Sonia Rykiel did have a broader design portfolio. She has translated her skill to a long coat with clean lines, collarless, akin to a sweater. The piece becomes particularly intriguing with six decorative mock pockets and large, glossy buttons. Perfect for all those days when the first cool autumn winds are felt or for a mild summer evening.

VALENTINO MISS V | 44

It is repeatedly emphasized that a classic black blazer is a staple that should not be missed in any wardrobe. Here's an example from Miss V, Valentino. The collarless, high-necked jacket can be worn open or closed, offering a variety of possibilities. Closed with black buttons and subtle ruching on the shoulders, the piece remains elegant and understated without appearing dull.

product details

DIOR | 38

The perfectly tailored vest by Dior is an iteration of the famous Bar jacket of the Maison. Since the introduction of the garment in 1947 and with it the New Look the basic idea has been in almost every collection of Dior, no matter the current creative director. Here the jacket lost the sleeves and grew in length but kept the immaculate tailoring. The heavy material gives the vest a luxurious feel, while the elegance and simplicity of the cut will upgrade every look. Worn on its own, over a turtleneck or a blouse, this piece is as versatile as flattering.

product details

LANVIN | M

A sleek and clean look cannot be finished without the perfect coat. The double-breasted coat by Lanvin is not lined and therefore light enough to be worn all year around. As only detail brown mock-croc buttons are used on the otherwise sleek piece, without any branding or embellishment.

product details

VIONNET | 48 FR

Black, long, and elegantly slinky are the three words that best describe this Vionnet dress. In a typical Vionnet manner, the dress is advantageously smocked to bring out the wearer's best features. Due to a nude, long slip, the dress gains a layer of interest and modesty while appearing like it is leaving the wearer bare.

product details

HUGO BOSS | 34

This black lambskin coat in a patchwork design is rather atypical for Hugo Boss. The coat made out of 100% lambskin gets the different structures through different treatments of the material. In order not to overload the piece, it is a clean design without any frills and details. The coat is closed with two push buttons but looks particularly good when worn open, so the unlined inside is visible, on which the finely treated soft lambskin can be seen.

YVES SAINT LAURENT RIVE GAUCHE | 40 FR

Black velvet was a staple in the 80s, 90s and is today. Here it is expertly used to decorate a structured garment in a very typical YSL manner. Accentuating the waist as the cut of the jacket is, it is giving the wearer a fabulous shape. This only is enhanced by very bold shoulder pads, an element that has as well been seen on YSLs 2023 fall|winter collection.

product details

LANVIN | 36

The coat is in a typical robe style: soft and roomy. It's a very comfortable and loosely draped coat, making it typical of the fashion house. A fur trim made of Mongolian lamb and midi-length gives the characteristic touch of Lanvin glamour.

LOUIS FÉRAUD | 38

A maxi cape made of velvet surely used to be for the big entrance. Today this vintage dream can be used for not only that but as well some more current and less glamorous looks. With its leather trimmings and matte buttons with gold detailing the cape has a much cooler aesthetic than what it surely used to be intended to initially.
