Cecilie Bahnsen is not too precious

Cecilie Bahnsen spring 2023

In her Paris studio the night before her Spring 2023 show Cecilie Bahnsen and her team wondered about the weather. The forecast for all of Paris Fashion Week was rain, but she planned to show outside, in a courtyard at the Cour Mansart Monnaie, regardless. If it rained, they reasoned, it would be on the theme. The collection is entitled “We Are Water”, inspired by an old Yoko Ono installation with a series of water-filled bottles, each with the name of a famous figure (Sylvia Plath, Cindy Sherman, David Bowie). “It so beautifully expresses something that I feel is true – that we are all the same, just placed in different containers,” the designer wrote in his show notes.
