AUTUMN WINTER 2023/24 COLLECTION
Paris, March 6th 2023 – Playful, innocent, bright and beautiful — the return of Bruno Frisoni’s eponymous collection is an exuberant affair. Evolving each season with a sophisticated inertia, his designs form a constellation of exquisite stars: silhouettes that toy with sculpture and artifice, one as pure as another is theatrical.
Extolling an individual virtuosity, the Fall Winter 2023 collection is a graceful study of colour and line. Designs expand upon the foundation set down a year ago, one that reaches back through a lifetime of curiosity and obsession with architecture, photography, and the decorative arts. Jewel tones flood the collection with dense colour, from marigold to violet, olive, dove grey, iridescent petrol green, hot pink and yellow gold.
Intertwining stories explore sensuality in supple grain and patent leathers, stretch or padded nappa and even shaved shearling, creating a panoply of textural creations from knee-high boots to sandals, pumps and pointed flats. Drape and geometry each offer elegant shapes and details, from softly ruched mules to square peep-toes and pointed pumps, as contrast elastic and swathes of grosgrain ribbon create a sensuous interplay on skin.
The ’Pumpette’, with its signature angled toe, take a star turn in recycled denim studded with classic copper rivets, swathed in shaved shearling, or given a Pop Art twist adorned with snap studs and detachable satin mice. Adorned with a single giant cabochon jewel, the new ‘Knob’ pumps complement the shining ‘Comet’ and sparkling ‘Cristalle’ bijoux styles. Other new creations include the ‘Pillow Bow’ mules crafted with a puffy bow at the toe and a sleek elastic arch strap, and the ‘Draped Ballerina’ with both a ruched pointed toe and heel.
Reinforcing the collection’s timeless verve, signature models return in new iterations with the festive ‘My Rose’ stilettos rendered in metallic pink patent, bright silver glitter and black satin, the ‘Crash’ mules in shiny nappa, and the ‘Bootube’ in satin and suede.
Editor’s Note: Applied across the collection, a new 8.5cm heel height joins the 10.5cm and 5cm models for a comfortable, versatile allure.
