Paris fashion week ss23 might be overshadowed by the whole Kanye drama, but the craftsmanship and talent shined bright once again. And for the few of you that don’t already know, as this has gone viral, involving even Vogue in it, Kanye West publicly attacked Vogue contributing editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson during fashion week. After the editor’s feedback on the Rapper’s “white lives matter” shirt on an Insta story, he furiously dragged her all over the Internet, commenting on her appearance and fashion relatability, and skills.

 

 That being said, one can’t help but wonder, “Is there room for this kind of L.A. feud and humiliation in one of the most prestigious fashion events in the world?!!!”. It seems like fashion weeks and the fashion scene, in general, have become more of a space for celebs to shine and promote their products or solve their “issues”, rather than a space of creativity, freedom, and talent. Does fashion really need all this?? And for what, for sales? Aren’t creativity, craftsmanship, legacy, quality, talent, and people enough?!! 

 

 So besides Kanye’s controversies, there is so much more that actually deserves our attention in this Paris fashion week ss23. Louis Vuitton was the perfect way to close the fashion month. As always, Nicolas Ghesquière impressed the crowds by playing with proportions and bringing the iconic LV zippers, clasps, and buckles supersized to the front stage. MiuMiu took our breath away once more, with nothing more than the absolutely necessary, layered cotton pieces and oversized pockets, as well as the iconic super mini skirt that’s here to stay apparently.

 

 In contrast to Miuchia’s reality check, Thom Browne on the other hand went all the way to Wonderland, embracing all kinds of weird and unique dressed in a lot of taffeta. In the meantime, Stella McCartney held her most sustainable show so far, with references to her years in Chloe. Matthew Williams followed the elevated streetwear path incorporating hardware pieces as the times’ demand.

 

 Virginie Viard stayed true to Chanel’s timeless DNA, but at the same time brought a very much-needed, fresh playfulness to it. Since we’re talking legends right now, Valentino, as expected, left us speechless, paying attention to color rather than prints or patterns.

 

 On the exact opposite side, Demna broke the mold for Balenciaga, having the models walk a muddy terrain and Ye opening the show in a security jacket, which isn’t exactly exciting anymore. Of course, the ever-loved City bag reimagined in a full leather gown is what stole the show!! 

 

 Furthermore, we were impressed by Coperni’s liquid fabric dress on Bella, referring somewhat to McQueen’s spring 1999 painted dress. Anderson’s  Loewe anthuriums made quite a spectacle, and Saint Laurent’s big shoulders gave major empowerment vibes. 

 

 Also, Victoria Beckam’s debut in Paris, Satoshi Kondo showing the first collection after Issey Miyake’s passing, and Isabel Marant’s take on Y2K is worth being mentioned. 

 

 Now let’s see all the beauty of Paris fashion week ss23 in pictures.
