Taipei Fashion Week returned this month, first showcasing Spring Summer ’23 collections via a themed group opening show before the unveiling of collections from designers participating—all with a focus on sustainability. Read on as we recap four of the SS ’23 collections showed by some major names taking part.
Rickie Chen and CHIH-I Tu of be homme presented a show titled CV & Stylish, featuring versatile and genderless fashion which isn’t tied to sizes or seasons. For Spring Summer ’23, the streetwear-leaning brand doubled down on simple, sophisticated and multi-purposeful staples that will win over fans everywhere.
Designer duo Dou Teng-Huang and Chang Lee, Yu-Ching were back with a collection that blends natural, traditional, and spiritual references for Spring Summer ’23. The result is ‘A Maze of Time,’ which clears the slate and resets the brand as it enters into a new world post-pandemic; one where clothes are delicate and soft without sacrificing strength and a presence.
Fashion meets function at the brand oqLiq, and Spring Summer ’23’s collection ‘Aura Protection’ was no different. On this occasion, designer Hong, Qi opted to focus on water resistant, moisture wicking pieces that bore prints and patterns like plaid, camouflage, and herringbone with contrasting zippers and detailing.
Designer Shen, Zi-Qin is doubling down on Seivson’s brand DNA, with a collection of attainable but aspirational structured and standout pieces for daily life. New this season is the introduction of a screw cap logo, because as the designer puts it, “Screw caps are so ordinary, but are essential for everything from making a table to an airplane. I expect Seivson to be like a screw cap: essential for customers whether it’s a small accessory or on a garment in a big fashion show.”
