PHIPPS FW23: TRANSFORMING AMERICAN FASHION
With great excitement and a resolute sense of purpose, PHIPPS reveals its highly anticipated FW23 collection, marking a transformative milestone for the iconic American fashion brand.
Relocating to the vibrant city of Los Angeles has breathed new life into PHIPPS, offering a fresh perspective and deeper understanding of its identity. The city’s dynamic energy and diverse culture have fueled creativity, leading the brand to redefine itself as a significant presence in American fashion.
Drawing inspiration from its rugged workwear roots, PHIPPS embarked on a profound exploration of weird Americana and countercultural outsiders, elements that have shaped its identity from the start. Iconic images from Richard Avedon’s “Into the American West” and visionary works from artists like Kenneth Anger, David Lynch, Alec Soth, and more influenced the brand’s contemporary reimagining of the iconography of the American West. The FW23 collection seamlessly blends audacious uniqueness with a familiar, enduring American spirit.
The collection showcases the evolution of PHIPPS across its distinctive divisions, with foundational essentials, standout styles from the LAB division, and highlights from the Gold Label vintage collection. This amalgamation of design ethos integrates the past, present, and future of PHIPPS.
A progressive step forward sees the introduction of new categories such as denim, underwear, and an empowering venture into womenswear. The brand remains committed to US-based manufacturing, reflecting its dedication to supporting local production and sustainable practices.
Continuing its successful collaboration with Woolrich, PHIPPS presents limited edition items crafted from their renowned deadstock materials, further infusing the collection with a unique blend of heritage and contemporary design elements.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, the FW23 collection was unveiled at the breathtaking Big Sky Ranch in Simi Valley, California. This iconic Movie Ranch has provided the stage for numerous renowned film, television, and commercial productions, further enhancing the fusion of fashion and storytelling at the core of the collection.
PHIPPS extends heartfelt gratitude to its audience for joining them on this incredible journey. The FW23 collection serves as a personal manifesto, embodying the brand’s unwavering commitment to pushing boundaries, transforming American fashion, and captivating audiences worldwide.
