Glimpses | Behind The Seams of Spring Summer 23 ‘Lumen’

Photographed ahead of its presentation in the heart of Manhattan, Aje invites you to enjoy an exclusive glimpse at the creation of its Spring Summer 23 collection, ‘Lumen’, in the lead-up to its immersive showcase at New York Fashion Week.


Captured through intimate fittings, design illustrations, and intricate garment details, keep reading for a special behind-the-seams look at how the collection came to life.

A reverent return to the brand’s romantic origins, Aje Co-founders Adrian Norris and Edwina Forest envisioned Spring Summer 23 ‘Lumen’ as an homage to the perennial beauty and power of dawn.


Celebrating the morning’s first light as the eternal tabula rasa through which the world is renewed, ‘Lumen’ is an embodiment of this aura and allegory, reimagining archival Aje designs for a new day.


Approached through the lens of deconstruction and reconstruction, iconic silhouettes are reinvigorated with Aje’s beloved modern handwriting, including elevated takes on texture, sculptural shapes, and contemporary embellishment.
