What do we want from our closet in 2023? Far from the high voltage, look-at-me glamour of late last year, what feels current are clothes with quiet authority — the seasonless kind that perfectly combine wearability, luxury and style. We want simplicity and versatility, but also pieces that help us to express who we are. We want to feel and look good in multitasking classics that form the foundations of our outfits and make getting dressed easier. We want quality, ease and timelessness — a modern trench, the perfect white shirt and wear-forever denim. It’s about celebrating those wardrobe essentials that ever-so-quietly elevate an ensemble.
