Supermodel Bella Hadid was about to close the Coparni show wearing nothing but a white G-string. However, the world was left in shock by what happened 15 minutes later. Two men began to spray her body with what seemed to be white paint, until the substance slowly made its way into an off-shoulder white dress that hugged the model's figure perfectly.

Among the massive bloomed anthurium flowers as tops and ruffled shoes at Loewe's Spring 2023 show, come three pieces of garments that come straight out of Minecraft. Loewe introduced the piece as a pixelated glitch, utilizing a 3D-inspired technique to make up clothes that looks like unrendered 8-bit video game. It may lose its magic when being viewed from the side, but it's awesome nevertheless.

This time, the avant-garde label invited the Brazilian heritage footwear brand, Melissa, to complement its gothic collection.
