Stine Goya FW23 Preps an Artful Wardrobe for Aprés Ski
The designer was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale ‘Snow Queen.’
For Fall/Winter 2023, Stine Goya felt galvanized by the snow-covered universe of Hans Christian Andersen’s Snow Queen. With the fairy tale’s empowered characters at its fore, the collection is brave, plastering Goya’s hand-drawn graphics on statement silhouettes and enlisting fabrications of all kinds for unexpected pairings.
In the opening look, a floral illustration decorates a dark, double-breasted coat, placing an immediate emphasis on Goya’s penchant for artistry. Following suit, a metallic dress dons a similar motif across its entire face, and a smaller, sharply-cut jacket lets a silver-blue flower drawing crawl over its left side. Meanwhile, a form-hugging dress pictures two subjects kissing across its center, and puffer coats and vests scream in color with all-over floral designs.
In line with the Snow Queen theme, several sportswear pieces appear ready for a wintertime getaway. Active zip-up coats pair with tracksuits in similar textiles, while metallic puffers and utilitarian pants exhibit a preparedness for the snow. Faux fur coats, skirts, tops and hats, all embellished with “snowflakes,” are suitable for aprés ski, and liquid silk pants find comfort in cold-weather fashion.
The checkerboard sweater, a Goya staple, returns in a green colorway, while button-down tops receive the sequin treatment in orange and silver. Patterned jacquard and intricate embroideries articulate the designer’s attention to detail, and the collection’s maximalist identity becomes clear through its vast range of colors and textiles.
