The fashion trends – shoes and bags– for next spring/summer 2023 areinspired by the Lushlife concept

Concepts, inspirational images, major fashion shows and the new colour palette for SS 2023, these are the ingredients developed by Orietta Pelizzari for Arsutoria’s trend analysis.

The key concepts guiding the shoe and bag trends for next Spring-Summer 2023 identify a luscious lifestyle (LUSHLIFE) as the perfect remedy to combat the “depression” generated by the pandemic. A sort of revenge that wants to surround itself with new details and exceptional products. It’s the time to indulge in escapism and exoticism, but this must be accompanied by responsible attitudes towards the environment and diversity. Technological innovation also plays a key role: the alternative worlds it can open up finally point to a positive and optimistic future. Biomorphic, futuristic escape, meditative: these are the keywords that guide us towards materials, shapes and styles that best interpret the LUSHLIFE concept. Primordial structures that recall nature; technological and iridescent aesthetics that harken back to nature in an artificial way; ending with a more introspective and genuine nature. SS 2023

Colour palette

The colour trends for the next spring-summer 2023 are among the most important information to explore regarding the new collections. Following on from the previous concepts, the right shades are conveyed through the different fields and ways of use (business, classic, sport, etc.). Vibrant oranges, cool and artificial but refreshing tones, primary shades for the sneaker world… and many other colour combinations, schemes, and Pantone® indications that will influence the trendiest creations. And a surprise: a special fashion theme focused on exuberant colours.

In the dedicated Special issue you will find an in-depth analysis with inspirational images, concepts, materials, color palettes and the webinar Trends Guide created by our Trend Researchers dedicated to the forecasting of spring/summer 2023 trends.

sfilate donna autunno inverno 2023-24

When retro tastes like the future. That’s what winter 2023/24 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 autumn/winter 2023/24

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.
