For Pre-Spring 2023 Brandon Maxwell debuts a collection rich in vibrant colors, drawing from his love of dreamy coastal sunset hues. With California as his muse Brandon Maxwell reflected on the silhouettes from his FW22 offering and infused them with whimsy, joy, maximalism and camp.
Hand crafted with one of a kind prints meticulously placed using sophisticated techniques, the collection employs an in-depth construction process, honoring the classic Brandon Maxwell shape. With craftsmanship at the forefront, Brandon Maxwell fashions high-touch pieces like a transparent foil fringe skirt embroidered by hand. Ball gowns are reimagined in cotton and draped over petticoats, the result is a season that exudes both glamour and ease.
Printed silk cotton faille illuminates the essence of the tranquil California cool with polish and movement. Airbrush artwork on silks, satins, cashmere and pleated chiffon styles marry well with silk crepe back satin bonded for a more sculptural shape. Brandon Maxwell injects play with the color-blocked, dip-dyed, ombre “horizon” print with surf break and skyline.
Knits and denim continue to be important each season, for Pre-Spring 2023 sunburst pleated denim with ombre effect acid wash pair well with cozy and preppy knit sets that can go from lounging at home to an evening out.
