Rains showed its Fall/Winter 2023 “HERO” collection at Paris Fashion Week.

The show reinforced Rains’ relationship with contemporary performance outerwear. However, this season silhouettes spill to the ground in columns of technical fabrics and extend beyond reality.

The theme has offered an opportunity to stretch our minds. The silhouettes are more dramatic, sculptural, and powerful. We explore superhero iconography in theatrical capes, extended collars, and new branding with a HERO application. Mono-sleeves recall the over-extending limbs of the superhero trope. The sleeves also reference straitjackets, speaking to the need to embrace our inner demons to fully flesh out the hero within. The collection offers more silhouettes, fabrics, and colors than ever before. The depth speaks again to individuality and building your hero’s uniform. Clothing empowers us. We use it to mask, while simultaneously revealing who we are underneath. We want the show experience and the collection to inspire the self-empowerment needed to wield your inner hero,” said Tanne Vinter.
