Move over bright colours and make a statement this spring with darker hues and neutral shades
Fresh off the runway
At the brand's Spring/Summer 2023 showcase in Milan, Donatella Versace sent models strutting down the runway in eye-catching baroque-printed suits – one of the house's signature motifs. The bold patterns and oversized silhouettes make for blazers that are both fun and formal, brave and sensitive, all paired with trousers to match. The Maschera Baroque-print blazer is defined by its golden-hued, chain-inspired pattern and features sharp tailoring, bold motifs and a supple silk lining – everything that makes it very Versace. $3,322
For its latest showcase, Emporio Armani is mixing things up with a range of items inspired by its signature design codes and a few others that colour outside the lines. For instance, the house is proving that pyjamas don't just belong at home and canvas joggers seem perfectly in place at the office.
Our top pick from this season's must-haves is this patchwork-effect vanisé jacquard board shorts. Adding style to every occasion, the jacquard recreates a distinctive patchwork motif through the fabric’s vanisé weave. $400
Sleek and sophisticated
Montblanc’s signature leather collection, Extreme 3.0, gets a spring refresh with the addition of bags and small leather goods in a variety of new shapes and colours. The Extreme 3.0 line was introduced to keep up with the demands of the modern jet-setter, with everyday pieces that balance style with functionality, available in black and green. The latest update to the collection sees the introduction of two new hues: blue and grey.
Featured above is the Extreme 3.0 compact envelope with M LOCK 4810 buckle, crafted in leather with a carbon-fibre motif print and a fabric shoulder strap that can be attached or detached with easy-to-use hooks. $1,195
The Extreme 3.0 compact wallet that combines clean lines with luxurious leather made using a carbon-neutral tanning process. It has room for up to six credit cards and banknotes and also features a ring that can be attached to larger bags or a neck strap. $350
Among Christian Louboutin's new arrivals for the season is this pair of Dandelion Spikes loafers. It offers the softness of a slipper, making it a very comfortable choice, while effortlessly combining the elegance of an urban shoe. It is crafted in goose grey crosta leather, which is embedded with silver metal spikes, and outlined with a tonal grosgrain ribbon trim. The slender lines of the vamp showcase the maison's attention to detail and expertise. $1,335
In the frame
Ferragamo has unveiled a new collection of sunglasses for the season, inspired by the house's vision of elegance and style and its bold attitude. The palette encompasses classic monochromes and vivid shades while the sleek silhouette is enhanced with leather inserts on the temples. The style is integrated with solid, gradient or mirrored lenses and acetate tips. $385
Round it out
Complete your spring spree with the addition of one of the most iconic fragrances of the decade. Inspired by nature and its raw materials, the Sauvage Eau De Toilette from Dior perfumer François Demachy is earthy and woody.
It features warm notes of bergamot, pepper and amber wood, which work all through the seasons. The vibrant notes evoke the freshness of spring, while the woody accents work equally well in winter. $175
