Paris: Isabel Marant and Ludovic de Saint Sernin promise a torrid summer

Translated by

In Milan as in Paris, the runways continue to put forward rather skimpy and sexy outfits for next summer. Transparencies, impalpable materials, ultra short clothes, and visible underwear define the new silhouette for spring-summer 2023. Just like Isabel Marant and Ludovic de Saint Sernin, who presented their collections on Thursday in the French capital.

A relaxed summer for French house - Isabel Marant

As always, the crowd hurried to Place Colette to witness the last show of the evening that took place in the gardens of the Palais Royal. The Isabel Marant show is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated of Paris Fashion Week. Thursday evening especially with Bella and Gigi Hadid walking the runway.

The designer took us south towards high temperatures with very short outfits including mini-skirts, tiny shorts and micro-dresses. The collection featured very wide armholes highlighting bare shoulders. Belly and navel also play the stars revealing themselves in looks a little more sporty and nonchalant composed of low-waist cargo pants and bra.

A vaguely exotic and oriental atmosphere emerges from the collection with a series of pieces with Berber influences, decorated with silver sequins and embroidery, cut in floral prints, or crossed with golden highlights. Ruffled dresses, fine bodices adorned with trimmings, a bolero sparkling with sequins, everything seems to vibrate in the heat.

Crochet one-piece swimsuits and beaded tank tops complete the women's summer wardrobe, while men take an even more casual approach with beautiful loose knit and crochet pieces.

A shimmering and sensual summer for - Ludovic de Saint Sernin

As he celebrates his brand’s fifth anniversary, Ludovic de Saint Sernin continued with an erotic vibe, dressing men and women in exactly the same way without distinction of gender. He reinforced his statement with a series of increasingly sophisticated sexy models, while enriching his wardrobe with more consistent and commercial pieces.

For next summer, men are taking on a sensual, virile, Roman legionary-like style, while women are showing off their very revealing outfits. Laced-up, high leather boots with no heel and banded skirts topped with a studded belt are the basis of the uniform. The centurion skirt is also declined in studded and fringed leather briefs, or in flared strapless tops with big pleats, also made in a minidress version. The skirt also comes in khaki canvas.

A scarlet anthurium with its yellow pistil, on a one-shoulder top or hanging on the wrist as a bracelet, attracted attention. The collection included uber-tight leather pieces such as a bustier, shorts, tank tops, pants as well as tulle veil draping over the body and fine knits.

For the evening, men put on fully laced pants, revealing the roundness of their buttocks, while women adorned themselves with glittering Swarovski crystal mesh ensembles, dresses or draped miniskirts matching the bra.
