Spearheaded by an all-female creative show team. London-based designers and Central Saint Martins alumni Francesca Capper and Natasha Sommerville reinhabit the definition of sexy for their latest Spring Summer 2023 Collection. With nostalgia and femininity at the core of their design, this season's ultimate muse was themselves, having heavily referenced their Autumn Winter 2021 Collection. With a broad fan base including mega-watt celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Dua Lipa, and Megan Thee Stallion, the label sets forth a powerful primitive undertone found at the core of the collection, as the designers also reflected on the current state and climate of the world.

This collection features encrusted rhinestone hardware juxtaposed with ultra-powerful femme cuts, draped and flowing silk chiffons, laser engraved latex, lacquered lace, silk tulle ruffles, and suede tassel trim in earthy tones such as deep purples and neutral camel shades. Contrasted by high-octane crystallized elements synonymous with the brand.

The designers introduced denim to their offering with jeans and corsets that have a lacquered finish, reflected through the lace detailing on the micro skirts and dress hems. The corsetry is continued in the form of latex, lace, and fishnet. The return of the iconic heart crystal buttons featured in the core shapewear styles has expanded to include leather and chiffon looks, with heart metal eyelets making space for organically laced seams and skirt splits.

The infamous shapewear classics at the core DNA of the Poster Girl aesthetic have become fully sustainable as of Spring Summer 2023. This category has been developed using recycled yarn only to be durable, supportive, and flattering while remaining soft.

For the first time, the label has expanded into another category to create handbags. Continuing from the success of the Resort show in Miami, exaggerated buckle hardware is embellished on four newly developed handbag styles and throughout the footwear selection, which offers bold and exciting textures. The luxe hardware is also found on micro skirts and low-slung leather hip belts.
