Simkhai has released its new Pre-Fall 2023 line with supermodel Amber Valletta. The newest release from the brand comes as an adventurous departure from traditional tailoring and silhouettes. The collection plays with the notion of fit and feel, experimenting with different textures to create a diverse range of aesthetics. Each piece is a balance of space and composition, manipulating shapes with juxtaposing textures and techniques.
The line emphasizes wearability, as the complete collection is meant to supplement an entire wardrobe with pieces for each season and every occasion, serving as an elevated version of everyday wear. Each item is individually tailored to the Simkhai brand. Knits texturize the planes of satin fabrics, making pieces like the floor-length white dress a dynamic canvas. Pieces like the oversized blazer dress with a crystal carabiner trim are an elegant portrayal of a classic yet modern look. The results are soft yet sultry looks that build intrigue the more it is observed.
With Valletta as the perfect muse for the new chapter of Simkhai, photographer Drew Vickers and stylist Camilla Nickerson were tapped in creating the imagery for the campaign and helped bring a new side out of Valletta for the photographs. The newly debuted campaign helps signal a welcoming of renewed energy as founder Jonathan Simkhai’s new vision for the brand arrives fresh off of the exciting rebrand at the last Fall Winter 2023 show in New York City.
