Christian Wijnants returns to the Paris Fashion Week cycle with a runway show for Spring/Summer ‘23 season for the first time in over 2 years. The collection inspires to deliver a joyous tenor, a message to embrace life, and act as a true ode to summer. To encompass the tone of optimism and beauty, the collection palette ranges from pastel green hues, crimson red tones, to a season-special floral print and XL long floral necklaces. The inspiration behind the makeup comes from waking up from a short nap on the beach, at the end of the day, with hints of sand still on your face, truly embracing the sense of summer.
The SS23 silhouettes; across pants, blouses, jackets, dresses et al. are kept free form to align with the summer reminiscent mindset of freedom, leisure, and fun. Linen pieces and sets are given a twist with wrinkle detailing, cotton seersucker texture makes an appearance in the form of a halter neck jumpsuit, and billowy poplin dresses are made special with knot designs and layers of draping all to culminate the essence summer easy living. With a recent store opening in Berlin and an inspiring Spring/Summer ‘23 collection, Christian Wijnants embodies the optimism of the season.
