Auralee. Autumn & Winter 2023/2024 mens & womens collection during Paris Fashion Week
Coziness. Warmth. The feel of hazily stepping out from a slumber and the sheltered snugness of home into the outside world protected and wrapped in comforting, enveloping layers of softness. A quiet sense of ease and well-being.
For Autumn Winter 23, Auralee offers affable and elegant garments that provide protection while being lightweight and agile ; garments you can snug in and feel soothed and relaxed; garments you throw on with insouciance in haste, and still be effortlessly pulled together.
A beautifully refined tailored hooded coat in soft brushed alpaca, cut elongated, and enveloping, and loose-fitting, can be worn over cozy thermal innerwear in ribbed knit or in supple luxurious baby cashmere; blending homely comfort with elegance, its a piece that has timeless wardrobe appeal.
Anoraks have fluffy unique textures and roomy, comfy proportions, and can be worn with ease over fluid drawstring pants or over long, flowing skirts and knit dresses. Vivid and soft coloured down jackets are gently voluminous and warm; hooded knitwear in cashmere or mohair are proposed in updated iterations, and add a sense of freshness when layered with tailoring or outerwear staples.
Layering gives a touch of creativity to personal style. Blanket-like, extra-long wrinkled-silk-quilted stoles and brushed-alpaca scarves are effortlessly tossed over outerwear to keep off the cold, adding volume and substantialness to the silhouette.
Styling further defines the mood of the season, balancing intricate yet rough layers of cozy knitwear and inners, with elegant structured tailored outerwear and details, facile sophistication and tasteful disheveling.
As always with Auralee, fabrications are of outstanding quality. Textures are luxurious and light, while keeping a woolly feel. Baby cashmere, baby alpaca, fine mohair, raised fabrics, wrinkled silk made for a wide selection of non-pareil materials and textures exclusively made by the brand.
The color palette is gentle and sophisticated, blending Auralees signature nuanced tones of egg beige, elegant white, light blue, soft pink, and accented with warm yet vivid jade green, turquoise and blues and orangish reds. Delicate yet musical, soothing yet vibrant, its warmth cheers up the spirit in the chilly wintry weather.
