Casablanca Spring Summer 2023 Collection

Posted by Admin.

The eternal hope of the spirit. Futuro Optimisto is harmony in creation. It’s knowing and believing that even the greatest storm can be a gateway for abundance. The deep understanding that all negatives can transform into a positive if you allow the vastness of the world to inspire the mind. The desire for a brighter future dissolves limiting beliefs and boundaries, elevating us to become masters of our own destiny — letting the beauty of the world unravel before us. The Spring/Summer 2023 Collection is told in the 3 vignettes below: Vaqueros, Phantastica, Nature & Architecture.

Vaqueros
Saddles and chaps, the scent of singed leather under the midday sun. Riding through tall grass valleys alone. The Vaqueros of the west coast of Mexico. The essence of freedom in harmony with nature. Earth tones of tan, leather and suede subverted into kaleidoscopic hues, injecting broad strokes of colour through a Casablanca lens. A surrealist take on life on the prairies where delicate ornament meets rugged utility.

Phantastica
Designing opportunities in the mind that the eye cannot see. An expression of our reconnection with the land – manifesting nature’s ability to heal the spirit. The infinite mindscape, the stretching of time and place, and the transcendence of self-limiting beliefs. Cosmic consciousness. A feeling of collective unity that tears away from traditional thinking.

Nature & Architecture
The free flow of nature meets the structure of manmade design The arch, an abstract symbol of strength. A spiritual portal. A complex prism allowing us to view the beauty of the world at a distance. Oceanic land-scapes unravel concealed allegories. Fantastical creatures inspired by the work of Pedro Linares–imagined by artisan-led workshop Zeny Fuentes y Reyna in Oaxaca — are a hallucinatory journey through the animal kingdom. The movement of the oceans, the evolution of architecture, and the unity of man and nature.

The Printemps-Ete 2023 collection, ‘Futuro Optimisto’, presents delicate lattice beadwork across dresses, tops, and skirts using an artisanal hand embroidery technique. Appearing on outerwear and denim is a new sustainable technique using a single thread of 100 percent recycled polyester. Silkwear remains a staple in the collection, continuing to serve as a vehicle of Casablanca storytelling – this season illustrates psychedelic night skies in Oaxaca and custom watercolour interpretations of nature scenes by Oaxacan artisans. Casablanca jewelry doubles in collection offering, in the form of charm bracelets adorned in natural pearls, psychedelic mushrooms, horseshoes, cacti and natural stones, meanwhile, enamel necklaces and intricate beading decorate 18k plated earrings. The classic Casablanca monogram is omnipresent throughout the collection.

Following the runway show, a special limited edition Casablanca t-shirt featuring a Zapotec poem written by acclaimed Mexican poet Natalia Toledo will be available on Casablanca e-commerce. All proceeds from the t-shirt will go to the Instituto de Artes Gráficas de Oaxaca (the Graphic Arts Institute of Oaxaca), an institution that promotes the arts throughout the community and region, founded by Natalia’s late father, renowned Oaxacan artist Francisco Toledo.
