One notable collaboration shown at Paris Fashion Week 2023 is the collaboration between Sacai and Carhartt WIP. sacai is a Tokyo-based fashion brand founded by Chitose Abe. The brand is known for its sleek and modern details. The collaboration with Carhartt WIP combines the functional features of the outdoor brand with the clean look of sacai, as seen in the pictures above. In short; a unique collaboration.

Perhaps the most unique creations shown at Paris Fashion Week 2023, are the Botter x Reebok x HP sneakers. Botter is a design studio with its roots in Amsterdam. The brand focuses on sustainability within the fashion world and does so with striking, dynamic designs. The sneakers in collaboration with Reebok and HP have a 3-D printed silhouette and combine striking colors. The result speaks for itself.

Japanese fashion designer, and protégé of Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo, Junya Watanabe showed several pieces with brands such as Palace, Carhartt WIP, and Levi's in his new AW23 collection. Watanabe is known for his designs in which he uses various brands as inspiration, without actually collaborating with them. However, it seems we can expect a Palace x Junya Wantanabe collaboration soon.

The Nike Air Footscape silhouette appears to be making a comeback. The model, introduced in 1996, appeared in a collaboration with sacai. The two names are no strangers to each other and have worked on several collections in the past. The sacai x Nike Air Footscape has a sleek design and comes with an asymmetrical upper. The double laces hint at the work of sacai, who more often returns this in his designs.

After more than a year since the death of Virgil Abloh, menswear designer at Louis Vuitton and founder of Off-White, the high-end brand showed a new collection last week, this time led by KidSuper. Colm Dillane, better known as KidSuper, is a New York-based designer and artist and is the mastermind behind the new Louis Vuitton collection.

With the motto "more is more," the collection comes with a lot of eye-catching prints, colors, and unique designs. Whether the designer will take over Virgil's legacy in the near future is not yet known.

Timeless approach Dior

High-end brand Dior is not to be missed during Paris Fashion Week 2023. The brand showed timeless items for both its women's and men's collections, taking inspiration from the works of Yves Saint Laurent. Timeless suits, detailed dresses, and sleek designs set the tone. Actor Robert Pattinson's outfit was also a hot topic as he was seen in a Dior outfit fitted with a skirt.

Daniel Arsham

The creations of artist and designer Daniel Arsham are also not to be missed in the Paris Fashion Week 2023 recap. The artist, known for collaborations with IKEA, Tiffany & Co., and adidas, came up with a clayed jacket that was "broken" out of its mold, so to speak, before appearing on the runway. The artist uses marble in many of his works and gives his creations a crystallized look. The pieces shown on the runway are typical of Arsham.
