Red is the new power colour: Our edit of AW23’s hottest pieces

Cherry-pick the boldest, brightest fashion pieces in this season’s must-have hue

Forget the muted beiges and neutrals from the recent quiet luxury movement – for autumn 2023, it’s all about the red fashion trend. This bold hue was seen parading down the runways at Alexander McQueen, Ferragamo and Fendi, where models appeared in everything from crimson evening gowns and trench coats to scarlet boots, belts and bags. The forever classic is a wardrobe staple that will never go out of style – as Gabrielle Chanel famously proclaimed, “Red is the colour of life, of blood.” Here’s our edit of the chicest red fashion pieces to buy now.
