The season of fashion week never disappoints as at least one designer does something so truly out of the box that it becomes the highlight of fashion for the year. For the 2022 season, that moment was possibly the one that happened at Coperni’s Spring Summer 2023 show. Amidst all of its regular outfits, the ultra-modern Parisian brand had all the tongues wagging when it had Bella Hadid walk onto the ramp and spray-painted her, creating a white dress from nothing. A truly technology-pushing feat!
The Show-Stopping Moment
Coperni, the futuristic brand and the brainchild of Sebastian Meyer and Aurnaud Vaillant, held its 2023 spring collection show in the Musee des Arts et Metiers in Paris. After a riveting and amazing lineup, Bella Hadid stepped out onto the stage in nothing but nude underwear for the final performance. A team of specialists, headed by Dr. Mabel Torres, inventor of the spray-on fabric, immediately surrounded her. During the 15-minute performance, the team dressed Hadid in a spray-on dress, a Coperni slip dress to be precise. The video of the liquid-polymer dress being sprayed on the model has gone viral as fashion heads all over the world are going gaga over this technology and its execution.
The Coperni 2023 Show
Though Bella Hadid’s performance was the most talked about aspect of the show, the rest of the lineup did not disappoint either. The designer duo behind Coperni played around with historical proportions, padded trousers, excess fabrics on miniskirts as well as leather jackets to create a truly boundary-breaking collection. Even the accessorization, like the popular Swipe bag and the clip-on Matrix-inspired glasses, was integral in establishing the vibe of the show. In terms of fabric, the duo opted for holographic floral print and slinky slip dresses. Overall, the designer’s work has truly impressed critics all over, and is sure to go down in history as a truly spectacular showcase.
