Brandon Maxwell Fall Winter 2023

Brandon Maxwell Fall/Winter 2023 – New York Fashion Week

February 17, 2023

Brandon Maxwell is a designer who has been making waves in the fashion world with his unique approach to fashion. He has always been known for his ability to reflect on his life and work, and these past few months have been no different. He has been thinking deeply about what he wants his brand to represent, beyond the glamorous red carpet moments that brought him initial fame.


In his latest collection, Maxwell went back to his roots and refined them. The collection was clean, comfortable and confident, showcasing plenty of oversized suits paired with cuffed trouser shorts, black hosiery socks, and pumps. The designer explained that the shorts came about because he needed to roll up the satin pants under the suits to wear them with heels. He wanted to create a look that was put-together but also comfortable.

The Fall/Winter 2023 collection hit all the right notes, incorporating emerging trends like black and white, minimalism, and texture. A sleeveless black column gown with a deep slit neckline was simple and chic, paired with thick crystal cuff bracelets. A glossy black leather blazer, bra top, and straight skirt offered a modern take on leather dressing. A gray bell-sleeve tunic over a crisp white shirtdress added a feminine touch to minimalism, while a gray maxi coat with crystal cabochon embroidery was a statement piece that was made to last.


On Valentine’s Day morning, as the show took place, Maxwell placed a heart-shaped box of chocolates at every seat, setting the tone for a collection that was filled with love and gratitude. The models walked out arm in arm, laughing and smiling, in a finale that was a testament to the designer’s positive outlook on life.
