MUNTHE SS23 SHOW Julia Sarmento Pereira August 18, 2022 MESSFashion SPRING SUMMER 2023 – CPHFW SHOW Copenhagen,11th August: The MUNTHE SS23 collection was shown at Sydhavn Recycling Centre. “When I design a new collection, I love to erase the line between creating casual, elegant, and graceful styles, and timeless, everlasting items. Why can’t they be both? Naja Munthe, Creative Director and founder of MUNTHE COLLECTION INSPIRATION: The starting point of the Spring Summer 2023 collection is the Suprematism and the colourful work of Kazimir Malevich. Around 1913, strongly influenced by avant-garde, a new art movement took place: Suprematism. Its paintings, which do not have a particular motive instead, are a composition of abstract colourful arrangements. Emerald green, cornflower, powder blue, mushroom grey, and pure white added with a drop of vibrant orange and caramel show that the choice of the colour palette is a major milestone in this process. This Spring Summer 23 collection is also devoted to stripes, as a staple mainstay. A preferred print with a decade-long story as a substitute for “classic”. Breton, nautical or pinstripes – there is a variation for everyone. Art is at the core of Munthe, and collaborations with female artists is a recurrence each season. For the Spring Summer 2023 collection, Munthe has teamed up with British artist Rosa Roberts. The London-based artist has hand-made a special art print, that is used for a selection of exclusive silk styles. The dark green and crisp white colours of Roberts art play well with the collection as its whole. A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE: The core of Munthe brand is to be conscious and constantly reflect on its place in the world. Being a fashion brand, by nature they’re not in a sustainable industry so they believe in using their brand as a powerful platform. Helping initiate small changes that will soon over time become bigger changes. Munthe believes that the journey of being sustainable is a never-ending journey, one that needs to be constantly explored and evaluated to help progress. They review every part of the journey from production choosing the best low-impact material to create the best working conditions for suppliers and employees. 64% of the collection meets the standard Munthe more responsible, which means that the items that have the Munthe more responsible label consist of more than 50% or more responsible fabric.
