ABOUT THIS TAKEAWAY GUIDE

AW 23/24 is a season that will be all about contrasts. Consumers will be seeking to reconcile the uncertainty of an ever-changing world, coupled with the need to feel grounded, comforted, and inspired. From movie-like, daydream-inspired vignettes of daily surroundings to a whole new appreciation for the ancient, mystical wisdom of the universe, it will be a season full of juxtapositions, complex craft, and a strong reconnection to our natural instincts. By loosening the reins on traditional expectations and order, we will be guided to a more authentic place.

Upon this new season, Informa Markets Fashion has partnered with the global forecasting agency FS (Fashion Snoops) to lead the way with an inspiring and informed look at what is happening for AW 23/24 in the womenswear market.

As a complement to the digital discovery session, this guide identifies the four overarching Design Aesthetics that will frame the season. Finding a way to align newness in design with consumer culture, these edited takeaways are meant to inspire and examine how each theme will influence color, silhouette, materials, print and pattern, and key items for the season ahead.

MYSTIC

The Mystic Design Aesthetic conjures up new ways to conceal and ultimately reveal new and unexpected silhouettes and moody design elements. While capes are layered on the outside, beneath the body is sculpted with corsetry and erotic necklines. The use of highgloss materials adds to the mystique, bringing a new sultry vision of sex appeal even to familiar shapes. As social lives flourish, occasionwear also plays a major role with glamorous going-out attire.

The bewitching shades in MYSTIC cast a darkly romantic spell, with hues like Bloodstone, Coal, Nocturnal, Jade, and Skyfall breathing new life into seasonal jewel tones—more mysterious than they are opulent. The entire palette is a modern day gothic tale with elements of earth, water, and air. There are witchy-inspired colors like Enchantment, Spanish Moss, Compost, Neon Night, and Pomegranate that float from the cosmos to the terrain, while delicate tones like Cool Taupe, Awaken, Heavenly, and Nautilus speak to the immense strength of ethereal pastels—seemingly floating while also feeling grounded.

MATERIALS

Material newness expresses a strikingly elaborate nature and whimsical spirit.

Jacquards and brocades seem to carry the same drama and charm as scenes depicted from an age-old fairytale.

Dark, inky glazes sink into hard or soft surfaces for a grounded almost night-inspired quality. Metallic yarns also work in a similar effect to excite and awe otherwise classic materials.

On the surface, these leathers offer a richly-colored appeal, but also support sustainable efforts thanks to chrome-free tanning or vegetable dyes.

Base layers continue to push construction boundaries with superlight but warming constructions. Opt for a delicate framework of micro gauge yarns that update sheers.

SUPERNATURAL SPECKLE

Deep jewel tones illuminate from the dark nocturnal backgrounds showcasing the intricate patterns that emerge through a spellbinding cloud of supernatural energy.

METAMORPHOSIS NIGHTBLOOMS NOCTURNAL TROPICS

Awakened from cocoons of dream-coated mysticism, butterflies hover between surreal noir and abstract fantasy with a fluttering of printed fascination.

Sleek photo prints, high contrast graphic styles, and fairytale-ready allover patterns embrace the unknown of the night and discover the beauty of fabled blooms.

Sweeping leaves take on a gritty wash of blurred formation, allowing the print to transform with a shadowed effect, swaying gently amongst whispers of fabled enchantment.

POETIC 2

Womenswear continues to gravitate towards simple staples that never really go out of style. Here we consider fabrics that are timeless and stand the test of time in an always-relevant wardrobe. A focus on knitwear champions novelty craftsmanship and set co-ordinates. Core shirting and classic patterns are also fair game for the everyday wardrobe, in addition to lofty outerwear.

The colors in POETIC are like rippling fragments of heart and imagination, full of earnestness and warmth. The left side of the palette represents the more eclectic part of a daydream, with Hazel, Oolong, Greige, Winter Sun, and Cherry Ice providing a kind of retro-inspired respite from the discord of everyday life. Brick, Introspect, and Baguette give us feelings of kindheartedness, while a temperate group of blues like Cascade, Aizome, Stormy Sky, and Ice go through a deep depth of emotions–from calmness and serenity to sincerity and gloom. Finally, some of the cooler pastels are a necessary balance to the warmer browns, emphasizing a wide range of sentiments

UNTAMED

In Untamed, we mimic the natural world through design with elements that speak to protection. Sustainable furs offer a literal take, while irregular or fuzzy knits embrace imperfections. Natureinspired prints make a statement, while convertible outerwear brings practical function.

The colors in UNTAMED are equal parts gritty and graceful, deep and delicate a palette that’s somewhat uneasy on the senses with a chaotic, disheveled presence. Compost, Willow, Supernatural, Ochre, and Greige are impactful greens and taupes that go from lush to dry, but they emphasize an all-natural appeal. Fire, Burlwood, and

Winter Sun inject a much-needed naivety into an otherwise grainy group of hues, while Teak, Raisin, Timber, Cherry Ice, Grit Grey, and Black represent the angst-filled parts of our personality.

CONTEMPORARY KEY ITEMS

SUSTAINABLE WARMTH

As there is a considerable shift towards sustainable solutions, faux and vegan furs are a driver for the comeback of fur looks on statement winter outerwear.

ORGANICALLY DRAPED

As an abstract interpretation of nature and organic growth, draped jersey lands on tops, skirts and dresses in solid earthy tones.

IRREGULAR KNITWEAR

Sweaters feature a renewed interest in imperfect stitches such as marled or space dyed techniques. Irregular surfaces also translate to nubby tweed fabrics on outerwear and tailoring.

WRAPPED CONVERTIBILITY

Wrapped convertibility illustrates the progression of utility and convertible items with deconstructed lines and quilted textures across most classifications.

YOUNG CONTEMPORARY KEY ITEMS

Puffers are updated with new A-line silhouettes and quirky quilting techniques that embrace surrealism.

Graphic mesh is amplified this season with nature-inspired abstracts and animal prints. Silhouettes hug the body, making this a great piece to stand alone, or layer under.

FELTED & BRUSHED

Tapping into the trend of novelty knitwear, felted and brushed surfaces take a cue from animated characters for a fun new take.

Eco friendly dyes, upcycled denim, and collaged materials create this patched up DIY look that feels vintage and youthful.

WOOLY FELTS

From a performance standpoint, plantbased alternatives continue to gain traction. The same holds true for trims, labels and closures that all explore these organic alternatives.

Stylistic alternatives to compost-inspired materials mimic the wild organic nature of root systems in tangled yarn forms and marled interest.

Revered for its natural thermoregulating properties, wool is updated to be more raw and unmanipulated in naturally felted compositions.

Accepting all the flaws and irregularities of the process, techniques embrace a more spontaneous sensibility. Surfaces appear unraveled from aggressive distressing that exposes the inner yarn.

PARADOX 4

Paradox brings to light directional shapes that recall 90s and early Y2K nostalgia. In womenswear this is interpreted through minimalism with updated versions of tube and column shapes, as well as new basics and minis. The young contemporary market pairs bulky jackets with sexy tops for a look that's reminiscent of early candid street style.

The colors in PARADOX are like a visual push and pull of tones and shades that reflect the many contradictions of modern life. Sweet-natured pastels like Lucite, Snowdrop, Introspect, Latte, and Ice are highlighted and underscored in a more powerful way when sitting next to brights like Cherry Ice, Fizzle, Neon Night, Butterscotch, and Polaris. A small but impactful group of neutrals further ground an otherwise prismatic palette. The chromatic experiment in weight and intensity illustrates how opposites coming together are made even stronger.

SIMPLE & STRAPLESS

Long and lean strapless silhouettes channel minimalism best. Column shapes apply to dresses but also extend to tube tops, in to both wovens and jersey knits.

00s NOSTALGIA

Micro mini silhouettes in both skirts and dresses speak to the early aughts. Schoolgirl styling is achieved by pairing mini skirts with long sleeve fitted crop tops.

NEW UNIFORMS

The new basics are defined by the comeback tank top and low-slung denim, which could be styled as either a casual or dressed up look.

Logos surface as a crucial way for brands to make basics stand out, from logos on jersey tops to even undergarments peeking out from low rise skirts.
