Vision Lab: footwear and bag material trends Spring/ Summer 2023

Arsutoria Vision Lab develops the key concepts and trends for shoes and bags for the next spring/summer 2023 season, translating them into new material proposals, with creative genius and thanks to the collaboration with some of the most important companies in the footwear and leather goods sector.

Carlo Sorrenti, a passionate researcher of innovative biomaterials, is a product manager and consultant in research and development, specialising in materials for the luxury sector. The founder and CEO of the Domino Ego company, to-gether with Arsutoria’s partner companies, has interpreted the fashiontrends - shoes and bags - proposed for next spring/summer 2023 in the Arsutoria Trends Guide, and developed new and unpublished materials specifically designed for footwear and leather goods.
Escape and exoticism related themes innervate luxurious and prestigious materials and are expressed through materials with a soft touch, but with the unique taste of distant latitudes.
Technological innovation does not miss and reveals itself with highly coloured and rubberised surfaces, or in proposals developed on multiple levels with differ- ent materials and textures, unexpected combinations and bright colours.
The return to nature, in the appearance and substance, is renewed with earth tone creations and textures that recall veins and roots hidden in the ground.
Vibrant summer tones on surfaces that recall marble, contrasting flashes, sea beds or even denim are told with clamour. The chromatic exuberance reveals itself with solid colour backgrounds of great impact.
In this edition of Arsutoria Vision Lab, the collaboration with companies has also been extended to some of the best Brazilian tanning companies, within the framework of the Design Na Pele project, promoted by Brazilian Leather, a programme created in partnership between the Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry (CICB) and the Brazilian Agency for the Promotion of Investments (Apex-Brasil) which aims to promote Brazilian leathers in the international design world and grow Brazilian tanneries through diversified creative and design contributions, broadening their knowledge of design processes and raising awareness on hot topics, such as innovation for the benefit of sustainability.

sfilate donna autunno inverno 2023-24

When retro tastes like the future. That’s what A/W 23-24 catwalk shows look like

When Etro parades on the winter runways and you hear the echo of one or more quotes, but find that they are stylistic phrases that tell the future, that’s when you rediscover the wonder of fashion, whose task has always been the same: to teach us to look back in order to shoot forward, with that creativity and poetry that imagines the unexpected.

The women’s Fall Winter 2023/24 seen in the New York, Milan and Paris fashion shows certainly elicits references to the past, but it also knows how to be very futuristic.

Classicism and the colour black. Here are the trends shown at the men’s fashion shows for next A/W 23-24

Analysing the Men’s fashion shows for the coming Autumn/Winter 2023/24, one notices the dominance of an extremely luxurious atmosphere that pervaded most of the catwalks. A luxury that starts with the materials on which an incredible amount of innovative research was applied. The dominant trend has made the collections elegant, but dynamic; essential, but not minimal. There is a desire for simplification and cleanliness, yet without rigour.
