With each season, Pierre Kaczmarek of Georges Wendell continues his insertion of new frequencies to revitalize the label. For the young designer's fourth collection as Wendell's creative director, the brand looks to the multifaceted nature of Paris. Specifically, the new Spring/Summer 2023 collection was inspired by the maze-like salons and libertine history of the restaurant, Lapérouse.
Tailoring remains a primary design focus for menswear, but pieces are met with twisted design details. Relaxed suits came to life in slate blue and dandelion yellow shades with both pinstripes and solid fabrics. Adding to these pieces is the mixture of supima cotton alongside wool fabrics. Altered constructions come into play through button-down shirts with razor-like hems and string-closure silk shirts. Elsewhere in the collection is casual denim, a paneled hoodie with matching gray pants and cut-off ties.
