Kean Etro signs his latest collection at the artistic guide of the brand, proposing a vision aimed at linking poetry and sensuality. Between kaftans and Sangallo lace shirts, for the Milan FW Spring Summer 23, Etro tells the encounter between the sensitive nature of poetry and the beauty of love. A masculine eroticism that between silks, transparent gauze and lace, characterize a collection that runs through an external and internal world at the same time. The journey that the brand brings to life during the fashion show to the viewer is exciting. A utopian vision of a great creative director who closes his career by retracing the passion and care with which he worked on the brand. A thought also addressed to Marco De Vincenzo who will surely be able to welcome and respect the brand’s thinking by incorporating a future vision, creating collections capable of evoking the strong personality of those who create and those who choose to wear Etro.

The men’s spring-summer 2023 collection is a tribute to the American artist Tony Viramontes died at the age of 32 from AIDS.

A creative work on new silhouettes that dynamically play between length and height between suggestions and moods in the style of the 80s. Discover Moschino on Michele Franzese Moda.
The Brioni Spring/Summer 2023 Collection is another trip into Roman nonchalance, with a casual spirit it captures itself in the spontaneous shapes, in the softness of a tailored cut that, without ever overwhelming the wearer, suggests a relaxed formality. Everything is soft and light, be it the suit, the trench coat, the sporty blouson with a small collar and the field jacket or an evening dress with a shawl collar. The Maison promotes a soft vision of tailoring for a summer of pictorial colors inspired by the cultural heritage of Rome and materials such as washed silk, very light wools and linen. A fusion of cognac brown, earth, yellow, blue, gray, black and white but also accents of pink, orange and light blue in the suits that define this collection, dresses made to accompany life, in the long term, in search of eternal beauty.
