Unsurprisingly, this season in Milan, the needle moved rapidly as designers made their debuts, shared their swan songs, and established themselves as part of the new guard. But where the magic truly lies is when a collection connects the dot and shows you don’t have to pick just one or the other. “Quiet luxury” might be a trending term as of late, but it’s long been the Italian modus operandi—and this season, the best collections proved that everything from a button-down to a gown should be infused with beauty and evoke the same emotional response.

Chatter in the front rows reverberated a lot around point of view: who has it down pat, who is still finding their footing, and who’s borrowing too

Benjamin Benmoyal Fall/Winter 2023 – Fucking Young!

by Anna Barr

After graduating from Central Saint Martins where he won the Grand Prix LVMH Scholarship in 2019, the French/Israeli designer Benjamin Benmoyal, 32 years old, gained some experience at Alexander McQueen and Hermes before founding his eponymous label in 2020. A year later, the brand integrated the official Paris Fashion Week calendar and the FHCM’s showroom (Sphère). It is now sold at retailers worldwide. In 2022, the young label was finalist of the ANDAM fashion award prize.
