Global Warming appears to be a prevalent theme this fashion season. Drawing Chloé’s Autumn\Winter 2023 collection which focused on rewinding, Chloé’s Spring Summer 2023 collection is all about fusion energy. Creative director Gabriela Hearst discusses fusion—the recreation of the reaction that occurs in all stars—as a potential clean energy source that “Lights up our universe.” Numerous looks from this collection embody sequins, and metals, while also nodding to futuristic styles. Quoting professor Stephan Hawking, “I would like nuclear fusion to become a practical power source. It would provide an inexhaustible supply of energy, without pollution or global warming.”

Working with visual artist Paolo Montiel-Coppa, Chloé created a light installation reimagining the Fusion For Energy theme. Utilizing natural elements and technological references, footwear includes gold and silver elements with braided textures and hardware.
