The future is female, and the future of fashion has no boundaries, no rules, and no room for anyone who disagrees. Kim Shui's Fall 2023 Ready to Wear show is right in line with that vision - ultra feminine, ultra sexy, and the definition of confident.
The looks in this show will inspire any cool girl that loves Y2K fashion, and inspire all of us in how to recreate classic looks while breathing fresh and trendy new life into them. Early 2000's fashion was present, but this collection elevates the vision to new heights. Fierce models powered down the runway in big dark shades, and middle parts, giving just as much attitude as each outfit. Classic Y2K mini dresses were reworked with fun prints and innovative lines to push the boundaries of the closet staple.
This line is exactly what today's young fashion lovers want - no bras, bare legs and bold mini skirts, so mini one model wore one as a belt. Bright and fun patterns were used tastefully and uniquely paired together. The presence of snake skin felt like a nod to shedding skin, showing skin, and the importance of both for women today. Women are shedding societies rules for what we're expected to be, and wear. Confidence in one's outfit is a rebellion alone in today's world. Being sexy and embracing your femininity is a rebellion. This collection confidently rebels and looks incredible doing it.
Comfort is key - silk and lace were also prevalent in this collection and more nods to classic feminine silhouettes from the early 2000s. High fashion silk babydoll dresses and lace slips reinvented to be worn outside of the bedroom. While some looks included a classic strappy heel, others had comfy fuzzy rave boots. The pairing of a sexy skimpy going out look with a furry rave boot will absolutely be a big trend following this collection. Proving to be ultra provocative and comfortable while looking ultra cool. Bedazzled cursive 'K's were sprinkled about - a hint at the fabulous Kim herself.
