Kiko Kostadinov FW23 Celebrates the Forgotten Pioneers of Avant-Garde Women's Fashion

Drawing inspiration from Anne-Marie Beretta, Krizia, Irene Lentz and Sorelle Fontana.

Kiko Kostadinov presented its Fall/Winter 2023 collection at Paris Fashion Week, celebrating those who paved the way for avant-garde womenswear.

Drawing inspiration from names like French designer Anne-Marie Beretta, Italian fashion pioneer Mariuccia Mandelli (aka Krizia) and American costume designer Irene Lentz alongside Roman sisters Sorelle Fontana, the profound collection fused classic tailoring with a contemporary color palette.

Arriving in vibrant hues of “Vermillion,” “Magenta,” “Grass Green,” “Chartreuse,” “Violet,” “Cobalt” and “Teal,” the collection aimed to challenge conventional perceptions of dressing, offering a deconstructed approach to design, intrinsic to that of Kiko Kostadinov.

Digital prints and hardware came courtesy of London-based Estonian painter Mariann Metsis, offering an unrefined palette of canine forms and abstract hues, paired with a DIY arts-and-crafts aesthetic, arriving in the shape of felted knitwear and blanket scarves. Elsewhere, the collection featured utility-inspired silhouettes, taking the form of trench coats, blazers, voluminous trousers and padded overcoats.

Take a look at the eclectic collection above.
