Marwood observes: Tie trends A/W2023

Each season, we watch the shows. As the editors and models move from NYC - London - Milan - Paris, the Vogue Runway app updates us mere internet observers with video, stills, details of every look straight from the runways. The menswear shows conclude in January and the women's in early March and the fashion trends for A/W'23 (or F/W'23) begin to emerge. 
One noticeable trend this season is tailoring and ties, and the women are leading the way. Labels such as Christian Dior, Hermes, Prada, Alexander McQueen, Undercover, Ralph Lauren, S.S.Daley and Margaret Howell stood out for their powerful silhouettes and contoured, tailored lines. We have captured a recap below to inspire your style... 

The necktie became central to some of the strongest looks by Alexander McQueen and S.S.Daley. Dramatic silhouettes of angular shoulders and meticulous tailoring, accompanied by spread point collars (which) held black leather or sequined ties in their grasp. These were confident, stylised, modern women, dominating menswear with self assurance. 

Undercover and Christian Dior adopted straighter, elongated silhouettes and boyish proportions reminiscent of old Thom Browne and Dior menswear. Slim ties with slim cuts gave the models an edge of charisma and playfulness. 

Yet some looks played with textured ribbon ties and ruched fabric shirts or shiny shearlings for added glamour. Prada, classy as ever, showed silk tone-on-tone looks with sculpted heels and the most perfect fitting trousers. 

The last group to note is Polo Ralph Lauren, Hermes and Margaret Howell. All known for holding their own firm ground in terms of classic inspired style and menswear influences. Trend is not high on these labels' agendas, yet they always manage to create relevant and desirable outfits that capture the imagination in a wearable and real way. 

On the tie front, the colours are safe and steady in dark brooding tones of black, ink and brown. Take what you will from that. The most inspiring part of this trend is finding tailoring that works for you, and proportioning it with collars and ties that personalise your look and character. Colour and pattern with a perfect shirt - whether tonal, or contrast white - can look effortless. We love to see formalwear back in business.
