fashion brand COLLINA STRADA presented the Spring Summer 2023 collection at Brooklyn Greenway on September 9 during the just-concluded New York Fashion Week. Got Milkweed? The collection is based on the butterfly’s symbolic cycle of life, death and rebirth, and its literal role in feeding the world’s plants, including those we turn into fabric. For the collection, the brand collaborated with Vitelli on knitwear, Melissa on shoes, Unspun and Levis on jeans and Viron on boots.
SPRING SUMMER 2023 COLLECTIONS
Models float through the garden in floaty orange fiber organza dresses, ready to rule the red carpet in responsibly designed, regenerative pieces that can conquer Hollywood without destroying the real woods. The looks take us from the funky era of caterpillars to the sparkle of butterflies, though the collection embraces the reality that we’re all in that mysterious gooey in-between on our journey to do better by Mommy Earth. – from Collina Strada
