Paul & Joe Spring Summer 2023 at London Fashion Week

A true ode to life and nature; Paul & Joe Spring Summer 2023 collection designed by Sophie Mechaly invites us to be enchanted. Here, the clothes grow and bloom in a secret garden where chimeral bestiary, enchanted seas and wild grass are illustrated like paintings, poetically magical and mystical. Magical mushrooms are embroidered and printed on luxuriant silks,  evoking  the decadent symbolism and imagination of 19th century English literature. Like a Lewis Caroll Wonderland tale, embroidered maxi flowers bloom on long organza skirts.

The positive energy instilled by this captivating garden is also translated through colors ranging from Limoncello yellow to pistachio green, marshmallow pink to coral orange and hot pink. This season also sees the transformation of the suit. Light yellow and sea-blue dyes are enhanced by a touch of lamé combined with coordinated skirts. Strapless dresses take on the shape of a heart. Printed stripes hypnotize the fluid movement of silk georgette. Driven by a refreshing candor and innocence, the collection summons childhood, giving free rein to spontaneity, facetiousness, curiosity, and creativity. These are the “Almighty” masters of this summer wardrobe, signed Paul & Joe.
