Germanier's SS23 Collection Proves Opulence Owns Everything

Featuring a 52 meter ostrich feather upcycled coat.

Germanier has made a triumphant comeback to Paris Fashion Week with its Spring/Summer 2023 collection, unwavering a powerful vision and range of distinctive styles that never cease to shake up the French capital.

The concept of “Annihilation” served as inspiration for the label. Kevin Germanier, the Swiss-born designer behind the emerging house, explained in the show’s notes, “Taking holes and bringing them to light, appropriating destruction to transform it in a positive way.”

The LVMH Prize semi-finalist’s notion of creating luxury that injects magic into the modern world was ubiquitous in a vibrant line-up that comprised exploded collars, tantalizing cut-outs, glitter-strewn edges, embroidered meteorites, spurts of pearls, faceted cabochons and borderline asymmetries.

Featuring shirts that become draped sheaths and blazers that turn into short suits, the SS23 range is an unapologetic presentation of glamour through arresting details and irreverent design codes. Upcycled garments, from ties to shirts and bodies to caps, all indulge in poetic alchemy. The creative director emphasizes, “Even if I make an all-black collection, it will always be bright.”

The final look, an upcycled coat made of 52 meters of ostrich feathers, was a showstopping moment, hinting at a sense of drama and radiation energy. The crochet creations were a product of Brazilian craftsman Gustavo Silvestre, signaling the label’s commitment to eco-friendly details and motifs of hope.

Check out the collection in full above.
