COURRÈGES FW23 CAMPAIGN ‘MODERN ICONS’
Reflecting the holistic atmosphere of Courrèges’ FW’23 runway presentation, the collection’s campaign is captured by world-renowned photographer and long-standing brand collaborator, David Sims.
A gathering of ethereal muses, including house icons Loli Bahia and Mona Tougaard, and the auspicious apparition of fashion supernova Gemma Ward, grace this season’s imagery with an otherworldly presence. Symbolistic hand gestures reference canons of classical iconography. Diffused variations of masterful lighting envelop each silhouette in a dream-like glow, rogue rays capturing the mirrored surface of parabolic brass pendants like windows into the heart.
Through this exploration of visual and spiritual enlightenment, Nicolas Di Felice portrays blended incarnations of modern ‘icons’. From the sacred postures of Renaissance madonnas, to the curved stance of a body cloaked over a telephone screen, his vision embraces the polysemy of rituals and realities that have shaped the Courrèges story. Cross-epochal parallels between the sacred and the mundane focus our attention on the radiance of the individual -‘Through the dark, through the smoke and mirrors, I see you’.
