For F/W 2023, Pierpaolo Piccioli takes black tie at face value, a figure of speech for a collection that builds around pieces drawn from every day. Conjecture and cultural capital are inverted – a symbol of masculine power, an emblem of orthodoxy and restriction, our preconceptions of the tie become theoretical architecture for a collection that toys with rules, emancipating meaning. Its ideological conceit is challenged, ultimately contradicted and redefined entirely.

My look: Ruffled wool and silk-blend mini dress, wool and silk-blend tie, Rockstud leather-trimmed wool fedora, and VSLING mini top handle handbag in black with sparkling embroideryall by Valentino, Astrilarge Botta 100 two-tone leather over-the-knee boots by Christian Louboutin.

LoL, Sandra
