The Fall-Winter ’23 collection from South Korean label SOLID HOMME, held in the 19th century ballroom of Élysée-Montmartre, is a masterful blend of vintage and modern styles, reprogramming tradition and nostalgia into fresh codes.
Designer Woo Young Mi takes inspiration from Spanish Basque artist Eduardo Chillida and the Bauhausian base, creating a collection that imbues functionality with freeform detailing against a palette reminiscent of winter landscapes.
The collection features tops that extend to mid-length in cardigans and outerwear, while baggy pants are elevated through the curvature of the silhouette. Hallmarks of the preppy wardrobe such as letterman jackets, boat shoes, and varsity stripes feature heavily across the collection, providing a sense of nostalgia. The oversized bags, strapped and hung to the back of ear-apped caps, reinterpret the classic Y-back suspender. High collars are exaggerated to cover models’ faces, while beanies are tucked at the back or doubly layered for extra shaping, some punctuated by Chillida-inspired motifs.
This collection is an embodiment of the brand’s aesthetic and a perfect representation of its unique vision. SOLID HOMME has managed to successfully merge the past and the present, creating a collection that is not only functional but also visually stunning, and in doing so, the brand has set a new benchmark in the fashion industry.
