Intimately Yours

Spring 2023 Fashion Trend

As if writing a love letter to that most feminine of items, the intimates’ category was taken out from under. The slip dress, an item which has been a summer and winter mainstay for its versatility, was giving Main Character energy at Burberry, where it was worn over mesh catsuits. Jersey basics proved their worth at Diesel and Dolce and Gabbana, while Matthew Williams Givenchy and Victoria Beckham used the opportunity as a branding exercise.  And at Dior, although earmarked as ready-to-wear, Maria Grazia Chiuri will do well to separate out the delicately trimmed and ruffled shorts, mini bralettes, and knitted tanks and re-merchandise them as a lingerie capsule.
