A display of elegance.
Through a mostly black and white color palette — save for some silver and muted green — the Spring 2023 line highlights the craftsmanship of the house's atelier through construction: blazers with sharp shoulder pads, corseted dresses, cinched overcoats. As always, Chiuri imbues the collection with touches of femininity, expressed through floral appliqués on a sheer top, puffed sleeves on a dainty cardigan and playful tassels swinging at the hem of a full skirt.
A long black silk cady dress and a purple velvet gown feel reminiscent of Baker's style and the era she lived in, as did the glam on all the models. The house also paid homage to the performer with the set, which featured artwork created by Mickalene Thomas using images of Baker.
Many celebrities — including brand ambassador Yara Shahidi, Anya-Taylor Joy and Jisoo of Blackpink — were in attendance. The star-filled front row aso included Rachel Zegler, Kirsten Dunst and Elizabeth Debicki.
