The most anticipated fashion collabs of 2023
From the previewed Louis Vuitton and pop art artist Yayoi Kusama's collection, to exclusive capsules presented at the latest fashion shows, here are the most stylish and anticipated international collaborations for 2023.
Louis Vuitton X Yayoi Kusama
The French label, owned by the luxury group LVMH, reunited with pop artist Yayoi Kusama, after a first collaboration ten years ago. For this second chapter, initially unveiled during the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2023 fashion show, the Japanese artist has painted her psychedelic polka dots - forming a hypnotic pattern - all over Louis Vuitton's monograms, on bags, shoes and even perfumes. In the luxury brand's Parisian gallery of dreams, called "LV Dream", the label is showcasing its trunks reinvented for this audacious fashion collaboration that flirts with contemporary art. The pieces, which have been available for pre-order in China and Japan since January 1, will go on sale worldwide on January 6 in all Louis Vuitton shops.
Forget the summer body! For its spring-summer 2023 collection presented last October at the Palais de Tokyo, Ester Manas unveiled looks worn by models of various sizes and announced a future partnership with Ganni, the Danish minimalist fashion label. A collab that is obviously inclusive and democratic, just like the philosophy claimed by the Franco-Belgian duo Ester Manas and Balthazar Delepierre. A white T-shirt with two hands clasped together to form a heart and several styles of shoes (mules, moccasins, sandals and studded clogs) signed by the Scandinavian label were revealed as a preview during the show. The two brands then left a few clues about their alliance on social networks. To be continued...
Supreme X Balenciaga
The American Tremaine Emory, who has been Supreme's creative director since last February, has teamed up with the luxury label Balenciaga to design an exclusive collection of ready-to-wear and shoes. Here again, the beginnings of this collab were revealed on the catwalk during Paris Fashion Week on October 2, with a white T-shirt ripped and flocked with the name of the Spanish-born designer's house, thus combining streetwear and high fashion. The capsule, which is scheduled for spring 2023, echoes a previous collaboration with Louis Vuitton in 2017, where Supreme tagged its name on bags, denim jackets and even skateboards.
Longchamp X Fatboy
With their colourful collection of oversized inflatable poufs based on the canvas bag model "Le Pliage", Longchamp and the Fatboy furniture brand are laying the foundations for "glamping", a glamorous version of camping. These accessories, available in candy pink, apple green and carrot orange, can be taken to the deck or the beach and are made entirely of recycled polyester and upholstered in LWG (Leather Working Group) certified leather. The summer capsule will be available on the Longchamp e-shop from February 7.
Masquespacio X Monoprix
The French Monoprix chain, created in 1932, has teamed up with Spanish interior design company Masquespacio for a summer collection, with aniseed green and pastel pink accents, inspired by the pop world of the 1980s. From women's wardrobe to plates and fruit bowls, this capsule includes around 50 pieces of ready-to-wear, tableware and home accessories, all featuring geometric prints. This capsule will go on sale on March 29, and Monoprix promises a colourful summer with another collaboration to be unveiled in May, designed with Lisa Gachet's label Make my Lemonade.
