Christian Siriano Resort 2023 Collection - Vogue

3 months ago 29

Christian Siriano is back with another collection and, as usual, it’s time to party. While the fall collection was “Victorian Matrix” themed (latex, gingham, puffed sleeves), resort is pure Siriano: all evening wear, with plenty of ruffles and plenty of tulle. It’s sure to appease his party-bound clients. “We couldn’t be busier in our business, with all the events happening,” Siriano says. “Not only with brides, but people going out to events. It’s been wild.”

The official inspiration was a 1950s tapestry owned by Siriano’s mother, but that almost feels beside the point when you’re looking at clothes that are so clearly just a part of the designer’s core identity. (Though if you are intrigued by the heirloom, Siriano turned it into a blue, pink, and green jacquard that’s most effective in a slim-fitting suit).

Siriano classic ball skirts with mermaid trains look familiar, but bright tulle separates, and ladylike sheaths are a surprise. Siriano has collaborated with the conscious basics label Bleusalt, best known for their supersoft sweats, on a handful of evening pieces. Made from Bleusalt’s signature textile (Tencel Modal), Siriano’s separates come in black, white, and magenta. It’s the designer’s way of showing that your black tie clothing doesn’t have to be stuffy and uncomfortable—a point made by designers like Halston in the ’70s as well. An off-the-shoulder black column gown is right at home among the rest of Siriano’s finery, though it is simpler and slinkier.
