Paris, 2022, post covid times. Fashion people sweep the world. Pink, blue or yellow-haired silhouettes, color the streets of the French capital.
Isabelle Decis a french fashion editor equipped with the sensibility of the details necessary and armed with an old polaroid camera makes her way through the busy streets on a scooter and goes back to back to parades, showrooms, and parties to give us in an instant tone of SS23’s vintage. A particularly rich and prolific season. Radical collections: Balenciaga and Santiago Sierra, denouncing the Ukrainian war; Ester Manas and her round women no longer struggle to exist; claimant: Stella McCartney and her approach to the world in harmony with nature and animals; Provocateurs: Dries van Noten and his colors, his burlesque forms, punctuating a desire for pleasure we can’t imagine; finally, conceptual: Louis Vuitton and Nicolas Ghesquière with the 50-meter «Monster flower» by Philippe Parreno. «An idea of dangerous beauty, almost carnivorous» and “A contemporary fashion,” is a reflection of a skeptical society in a search for transparency, change, and response.
