FW23 ‘THE QUIET BOTANIST’
“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.”
A bright green splash of color pushes through the earth, a microscopic new beginning is set in motion, the seeds of change stir restlessly in the ground. Is it magic or science? Is it a miracle or a chemical mix? Our FW23 collection, The Quiet Botanist, celebrates the natural universe and the curious minds of our young entrepreneurs and scientists who are constantly seeking out new answers to ancient universal mysteries. We pay homage to our budding scientists and quiet botanists and their desire to investigate the individual elements and interconnected systems that make up this periodic table of life!
A CLOSER LOOK INTO FW23
Experimental, easy-to-wear garments with an edge of street and a nod to the future make a dramatic entrance this winter. Bright green neoprene A-line skirts and silver new age puffer coats sit alongside cool black and cream tricot jerseys and classic check wool coats. Velvet devoré dresses in earthy copper brown tones combine with silver raincoats and shiny bomber jackets.
Gold and black stripy stretch pants sit under hoodies with periodic table prints. White cotton dresses with tulle overlays and shadowy plant prints make a botanical splash, pairing beautifully with plaited tricot raw white cotton jerseys and shiny bucket hats. Plain black comfy blazers with matching trousers become statement pieces. Mix them up with soft fleece tops and washed-out denim pants for a sophisticated take on street style. This is wearable art. This is comfy cosy street style. This is the Quiet Botanist.
