What were our favorite shows of FW23 MFW? Easy: Sunnei, Diesel, and MM6. Read about the shows below.
Sunnei has always placed emphasis on being more of a cultural staple rather than a brand, and their recent appearance at Milan Fashion Week solidified that. After their womenswear debut in 2018, Loris Messina and Simone Rizzo worked their designs into different tailoring to excite their growing audience. With women being a big percentage of their audience, Messina and Rizzo created a collection that they felt spoke to that audience with a bit of a grungy vibe to match the rock music playing at the venue. Models were crowd surfing across the audience in their runway looks, which emphasized the importance of playing with different textures, colors, and occasions. Messina and Rizzo designed fun and easy pieces to add to your wardrobe to make you feel confident and free.
Diesel boldly decked out their set with thousands of condoms, dropping jaws everywhere. Does it really matter what's to come when the runway is lined with condoms? Models in very Y2K-esque outfits strutted down the runway to loud music wearing. The looks featured things like low-rise jeans, metallic tops, see-through jean maxi skirts lined with mesh, and distressed business suit sets. The message was clear, much like the contraceptive memento; be safe and have fun.
MM6 Maison Margiela
The MM6 Maison Margiela collection allowed those watching to experience the inter-workings of layers as they were accentuated or removed while the model was walking. With more of a disruptive feel in comparison to their previously very detailed tailoring, forearm-length gloves were seen under leather tops with no sides and pleated business pants. Thigh-high metallic boots accentuated a structured hoodie/short set. Although traditional Margiela may not have made its impression through this idea of deconstructed, distressed pieces, MM6 is certainly having fun playing with new fresh ideas.
