With this presentation being his second-ever runway show during New York Fashion Week, Edvin Thompson has proven his talent – yet again – for his Theophilio brand’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection.

Already a CFDA Award-winner for American Emerging Designer of the Year, Thompson’s new collection shone a spotlight on his Jamaican heritage and celebrated carnival aspects of Black culture, as well as 1970’s swag – in the form of ornate feathered headdresses, sequins, Apple Jack hats and flare-legged pants.

Bejeweled tops, bedazzled dresses and gilded leather helped to signal a cause for celebration and “Black Joy” on the runway, while color palettes of yellow, green, tans, white, purple and denim comprised two-toned leather pants, bias cut paper-thin dresses and cropped T-shirts. Personal branding also played a key role in the collection, as bedazzled tee’s bearing the phrase “I Love TP” appeared in various colorways.

As a brand that passionately crafts focal ready-to-wear luxe items for men and women, an emergence of genderless creations vied for a position in the forefront – seen in oversized champagne-colored blazers and bottoms, glittering tanks and intimate apparel.
