SS23 UNDERWATER fairy-tale reinvented
Once upon a time in a faraway land…
The call of water nymphs singing in the crystal-clear waves of a wondrous, magic sea. A moment, suspended in space and time under the sapphire surface. Blissful peace and light of gold and silver filling the heart with the wonder and magic of being. A mischievous smile on her lips, she walks the crystal halls of the underwater realm, joining the happy, carefree nymphs, twirling and dancing with them as one, watching rainbow bubbles bursting in an endless sea of thousand shades of colour. A splash of rosy sunlight and white foam, a cerulean sky through the mirror of water. Coming to life with the first rays of the bright spring sun, a new tale unfolds like the tender silken petals of an enchanted rose.
The new ARISTOCRAT Spring/Summer 2023 couture collection is a breath of fresh inspiration for a new season of beauty and magic. A dreamy tale of an underwater realm, the designer’s vision is as subtle as a touch of sunlight upon water, reflected in the refined harmony of hand-woven linen, the elegant sheen of freshwater pearls and warm touches of golden amber. Pure, expressive lines, hugging the wearer like tenderly caressing waves on a warm day and beautiful water and sunlight shades accenting the gracious form and the gentle flow of the fabric.
Never failing to surprise, ARISTOCRAT delivers a collection to strike one with its elegance yet also charms with an unexpected twist of playfulness. Feminine as always, dreamt into being with the unmistakable touch of a designer passionately devoted to even the smallest detail, evoking memories of half-forgotten fairy-tales and enlivened by bold statement prints created and hand-painted by Anna Kustikova. Elegant forms daring to be different with whimsical drawings. Delicate embroidery, crystals, silk flowers and finely crafted stitching meet pure delight of connecting to the inner child through art and feeling the innocent joy of being stirring within the soul. The collection invites on a journey – a journey deep within the underwater realm, awaiting full of revelations.
It is a realm of magic with gracious plants floating in the water, filled with golden glimpses of sunlight captured in minute drops of amber. A realm of a faraway laughter like a twinkling silver bell, singing the very essence of this world. A laughter gently awaking the inner rebel and unlocking the secret of this collection. Daring to be bold and free. Haute couture paired with the wild spirit of an artist; beauty paired with mischievousness. Beauty so pure it is of an otherworldly quality, yet with a sparkle of humour. This beauty is no object meant to be admired from afar. It is one that one finds within.
