CALZEDONIA X LAETITIA CASTA SS23
The SS23, beachwear collection by Calzedonia is rich and colourful, designed to create a summer defined by a myriad of colour shades and different styles dedicated to women and their femininity. The on-trend bikinis of the season are elegant and sophisticated, reflecting the most sought-after fashion trends with meticulous details in sophisticated shades. These are combined with the most colourful pieces, perfect for a day at the beach, relaxing by the pool, but also cocktails at sunset and exclusive beach parties: unforgettable summer moments featuring the signature Calzedonia label.
Among the different ranges we find the exquisite and refined Coastal Chic line, enriched with sensual sheer details, 3D appliqués, embroidery and sophisticated patterns, in contrast to the youthful Summer Festival range: inspired by travel and adventure, it showcases denim-effect patterns and the now-iconic crochet construction enriched with shiny metallic threads in bright, must-have colours of the season.
There is also a range inspired by nature, the sea and the intense shades that symbolise them, namely Wild Nature: a palette of natural shades inspired by earth tones mixed with a blue colour scale to recall the ocean and its evocative landscapes. The prints are colourful and echo flora and fauna, with captivating animal prints, botanical patterns and tie dye motifs, even available in shimmering, iridescent fabrics.
Alongside the bikini collection, there are plenty of beachwear proposals on offer, ideal for mixing & matching with swimwear, as well as for wearing on different occasions throughout the day.
Linen shirts – a staple for every occasion – come in the colours of the season, as well as in neutral white, black and ecru, and can also be matched with linen-blend Bermuda shorts and the new 100% cotton shorts with a smock stitch at the waist.
Another favourite this season are the long crochet trousers that are back with a see-through finish. These can be complemented by the gilet – a brand new addition – also made using the same technique, which can be worn together or separately for a casual beach look.
There is also a wide range of caftans, which are a chic choice for everyday wear this summer: decorated with embroidered trims, crafted in sangallo lace with gold sequins or made in mesh with a frayed effect at the hems. New proposals in beige include the fringed knit that reveals the silhouette and the woven-knit gilet with gold lamé threads, which is both luxurious and refined.
Wrap-around sarongs and dresses embellished with inserts and macramé patterns complete the Calzedonia beachwear range for the swimwear season, which is rounded off with a selection of colourful beach towels to match the garments in the range.
Calzedonia’s Summer 2023 is classy and sensual, but also marks the brand’s evolution towards inclusivity in all its forms. For example, the SS23 campaign featuring the French model and actress Laetitia Casta becomes an expression of timeless femininity and refinement.
