Six years after his debut collection, Ludovic de Saint Sernin showcased his new collection as the closing show of the menswear calendar for Paris Fashion Week.
The Spring/Summer 2023 “Lust” collection serves as a tribute to the celebration of queer desire, joy, and power. Ludovic de Saint Sernin challenges prudish moralism by rejecting lewd stereotypes commonly associated with queer expression. In their place, the brand offers a collection that celebrates androgyny with a collection that exudes sophistication.
The collection evokes a romantic ambiance, reminiscent of a tranquil summer evening. Neutrals are gracefully infused with touches of black and patent pops of Calder yellow, green, and navy. The overall effect is visually pleasing, offering a soothing palette.
Contrasting elements bring life and intrigue to the collection, such as sweeping mermaid skirts complemented by contrasting leather embellishments.
What sets this collection apart is its wearability. With a range of neutrals and elevated basics, these pieces can seamlessly fit into anyone’s wardrobe. The collection’s sleek and versatile nature make mixing and matching effortless.
As the fabrics cascade down the runway, Japanese tweeds and gossamer materials are skillfully employed in generously cut, airy tailoring. Ludovic de Saint Sernin remains true to his signature style, maintaining ethereal and wearable androgyny.
Ludovic de Saint Sernin is a French fashion designer that launched his gender-fluid brand in 2017 and quickly garnered attention for his innovative designs and use of sensual materials. With his unique approach to luxury fashion, blending sensuality, and a minimalist aesthetic, Ludovic de Saint Sernin created the name that is known today.
“Lust” is a Ludovic de Saint Sernin classic collection with beauty seeping through each design. However, one might wonder when we will witness further evolution and innovation from this talented designer.
