The year of 2023 in the fashion arena has been nothing but transcending the borders built years ago while giving a touch of modernity. It was 365 days of styles and trends where versatility and diversity were held with such grip as the season changed. As the Spring 2024 nearly approaches, we are still enraptured by the allure of contrasting tones 2023 has strengthened in presence. The solid enticement of black and white became the top pick, as usual, with other neutral colors. It is anticipated that color contrasts in styles will continue to manifest in the coming seasons. Black and white as a combination is not called classic for nothing, right?

From flashy jewelries fitting every event, abstract and floral motifs; outstanding-yet-quiet “luxury”, to shades of red, 2023 has always been challenging what’s conventional to assert powerful self-expressions.

Now, let us take a look at the best styles of Spring/Summer ‘23 that resonated to all of us.

Speaking of contrasting tones, the Marni Men’s Poplin Bowling short sleeves and shorts coordinates capture the vibrancy of contradicting colors in the playful, dynamic season.
