LVFD AW 22/23 collection - Boldness, elegance and abundance are some of the main key elements that you will come across in the new collection “Romantic opulence”. According to the words of Lucie the overall concept behind her upcoming set revolves around “ the people around me, a mix of beautiful and sad”, she says.
Romantic opulence represents the perfect juxtaposition between abundance and sadness, melancholy and exuberance. These contrasting elements prevail throughout the whole collection through materials, colour schemes, patterns and textures.
However, the garments feature neutral colours such as ovary, black and silver, with nuances of baby pink. To contrast the simplistic shades we have cut-outs, transparencies that add structure and shape.
In addition, persistent in the theme of juxtaposition materials and fabrics in fact, DISSIMILAR fabrics such as vinyl and tulle are paired together. Although these different patterns clearly contrast each other because of the different materials and texture, we are still left with a cohesive harmonic and romantic look.
Most importantly, it is remarkable the use of materials such as sequins, fringes, feathers and pearl drapery that provide dynamism and movement to most garments. In addition, bling and rhinestones details are included in some garments THROUGHOUT the collections, these are Preciosa studs and crystals.
LVFD’s SS23 collection “Hardly Soft” was showcased on the 1st of October 2022 at Paris Fashion Week. The collection celebrates the beauty that exists in both sides of a woman; the hard and the soft, the fierce and the delicate, the invincible and the vulnerable.
This duality is reflected throughout the collection with the unique choice of materials, textures and shapes. Shimmering sequins, soft florals and flowing silhouettes are beautifully unified with bright colour blocking and structured vinyl pieces. The boldest forms are decorated with intricate embroidery, imitating the dance between hard and soft. The fun and ease of spring and summer time is captured with bright purples, blues and greens paired with pink and purple pastels.
The Hardly Soft collection embodies the rose as well as it’s thorns, made for every woman who loves herself for her vitality but also her tenderness.
