FESTIVAL SEASON

What to do in summer 2023 – and what to wear while doing it?

In Spain the temperatures already exceeded summery heights while northern Europe is still stuck in a rainy spring. While both sides might wish for the opposite climate, trips are planned and last years summer favorites will be brought out soon. Therefore, it is finally time to fill whichever gaps are to be found in your wardrobe while sipping cocktails in cool couture on your couch.

Whether you plan to lay by the pool in Puglia or slay in Santorini the time of summer vacations is rapidly approaching. With it are garden parties and festivals to be seen on the horizon. Fringe is the detail made for every festival season, a long-lasting love affair rekindled every year. With that come some boho-inspired elements, which haven’t been around in the last couple of years. Think ruffles, and layers but this time more elevated and less boldly patterned.

GUCCI | 44 IT

Full of fringes the top by Gucci is softly following the wearers every move. The loose cut base is decorated with satin strings to create an almost armor like effect, which makes every necklaces an unnecessary adornment. While some skin is shining through deep neckline, the shirt is still
covered up with just a small edge.

YVES SAINT LAURENT | 28

YSL took a miniskirt and created a very cool garment. The short skirt is decorated with small metal stars at the hem and the waistband. Furthermore, the hem is left frayed, for another added edge. With four functioning pockets the piece is perfect for summer or colder days with tights.

PACO RABANNE | 40

Paco Rabanne got an American inspiration. A western shirt is kept tonal in a satin material, with round silver push-buttons to close at the cuffs and front. As an added bonus the crème base is decorated with metallic silver flower embroidery and embellishments.

PRADA | 40 IT

A ruffled top by Prada is creating a tiered effect. The light silk is softly caressing the wearer, while the colors make the piece eclectic and more fun. Added on velvet spaghetti straps give a further illusion of lightness, while the straight, almost boxy cut of the body grounds the piece. In conclusion, the garment is giving boho in the best way possible.

PHILOSOPHY DI LORENZO SERAFIANI | 34

For his resort 2017 collection, Lorenzo Serafini went all in on the details. The dress alternates a striped fabric printed with a micro floral pattern and black lace, creating a patchwork of materials. With some tie-up details, the vintage-inspired layered dress looks like a mix of a 60s girl with some western influences. Ending over the wearer’s knee the midi-dress can be appropriately styled for basically any occasion.

FERRAGAMO

Ferragamo is a brand of juxtaposing attributes. On the one hand the very proper and conservative maker of staples for the aging upper class but as could be seen in the early oughts’ or the fall/winter 2023 runway the brand can also be for the fashion-forward. Like here: the idea of a matching belt and bag is very conservative but due to the pink and cream coloring in pony hair, the set gets a very different vibe. The typical circular Ferragamo hardware is seen as a blet buckle as well as on the bags strap, making sure the branding is subtle enough not to be noticed by everyone but only those in the know.

YVES SAINT LAURENT | 36

YSL is one of the brands which manages to consistently serve looks and rarely had one bad collection. One of the pieces responsible for the brands’ success might be this leather skirt. Ending around the knees, with all the zippers decorating the leather skirt it goes from conservative to a cool-girl aesthetic. Due to the zippers at the front, coming up from the hem, the skirt can be opened or closed to the wearers liking and showing off some leg.

MIU MIU | 44 (IT)

Miu Miu excels in feminine and frivolous designs. This low-rise skirt is the epitome of the early oughts fashion. On an orange base flowers appear to be painted on with watercolor giving an abstract and artistic design to the clean lines of the skirt.

STRENESSE | 36

The cream chiffon dress is loosely wisping around the wearer. Added ruffles create a playful note, which only is enhanced by a neck holder, which holds up the very light garment. A straight cut is balancing the piece, which is perfectly suited for a very hot day in the sun.

YVES SAINT LAURENT | S

Estimated to be part of the spring 2016 collection by Hedi Slimane the mini skirt made of jeans fits the grunge and glitter theme. Created with festivals in mind it could be paired with heavy boots or wellies or be more daytime appropriate with sneakers for a laid-back city look.

product details

NINA RICCI | S

A rare find is this Nina Ricci vintage cover-up, in a yellow knitted maxi dress style, embroidered with white paillettes to give the piece a special something extra. The delicate embroideries are shaped like one of the best-known signifiers, a dove, taken from the famous Lalique perfume bottle, together with the brand’s name.

PUCCI | 42 (IT)

For everyone loving psychedelic prints and the color orange, this bikini is what dreams are made of. Pucci designs are always timeless, as it is not easy to pinpoint the exact moment in time a pattern was created, which makes the pieces evergreens in every closet.

GENTLE MONSTER

The experience-based eyewear brand has been founded in Korea. Gentle Monster's shops are designed like art exhibitions and change with the presentation of every new collection – a very unique concept. But as outstanding as their business ideas are their sunglasses, like this model, the Alley Cat. An extravagant cat-eye effect is created by the blue-orange tortoiseshell effect frame. The modern pattern is set against futuristic, perfectly round and mirrored blue lenses. These oversized glasses are all-rounders and can accompany you from the sidewalks to the slopes.

YVES SAINT LAURENT

ERDEM

A bold cocktail ring can spruce up a classic black dress and turn it into a fashion statement. This one consists of a cluster of three Aventurine-Quartz stones on a messing setting. The orange and dark green hues of the stones are beautifully paired with the gold of the rings setting and thereby perfecting the warm tones of the jewel.

RETROFÊTE | XS

A wrap dress might be known for being perfect for meeting the in-laws mixed with a hint of sexiness but this one is something different. Here a bold metallic fabric softly is flowing around the wearer, if the maxi dress is wrapped. The flounces at the bottom of the skirt are softening the strong shoulders that end in three-quarter length sleeves – overall a design juxtaposing sweet and bold elements for a surprisingly versatile piece.

LONGCHAMP

Longchamp is known for the Le Pliage bag made out of nylon and being very durable. But for those who dislike the material, there is a beautiful alternative: the Le Pliage Cuir. Made completely out of leather and coming with a crossbody strap. For the roomy bag, the brand made a fabulous advertisement about 11 years ago, with Coco Rocha as the face of the campaign.
