Matthew M. Williams invited guests to a disused swimming pool on the outskirts of Milan to present his Spring/Summer 2023 collection for 1017 ALYX 9SM. Titled “MOTION,” the runway presentation debuted a range of unisex apparel in addition to fashionable shoe styles and a Nike collaboration.
The show opened with a series of minimalist black-and-white ensembles, including loose, straight-legged pants paired with vests and coats. This time around, Williams has focused on comfort, creating womenswear with luxury swimwear technical stretch fabrics that keep the wearer cool throughout the summer season. Elsewhere, ready-to-wear pieces underscored the experimental nature of ALYX, with a unique weave constructing weightless knit items.
Williams further launched the new Alba and Lila bags in a wide range of colors and materials. The first is equipped with the Alyx Micro Buckle clasp while the second is a minimalist style with an origami-like structure. On the shoe side, the designer created the ARIA sneaker in high-cut and high-cut iterations. Williams also revealed their ongoing partnership with Nike – the Nike x MMW 005 Mule arriving in Black and Light Gray hues.
