Fall 2023 Fashion Trend

We typically associate pastels with spring, so it’s intriguing to see them trending across the Fall 2023 runways. For many brands and designers – especially the biggest names – the season felt like a refocusing and a refinement of core brand identity via long-lasting wardrobe staples; perhaps pastel fits this somewhat more conservative and considered approach than bright colors might, offering a bit of chromatic expression without loudness.

Nonetheless, the runways still bloomed with soft color, with brands like Anrealage and Collina Strada mixing and matching for a sort of haute-minded pastel punk, while Bottega Veneta and Altuzarra opted for elegant monochrome ensembles.
