Gemma Ward fronts the Christopher Esber Pre Fall 2023 Collection, photographed by Duncan Killick.

Drawing influence from iconic talent of the early 00’s, Creative Director, Christopher Esber shares "Gemma has been a muse, a perennial Esber girl from the earliest days of the brand. Grounded in her connection to nature, she powerfully rendered the mood of the season with a total sense of ease."

Entrenched in nature and form, Pre Fall 2023 exhibits the concept of tropical grunge, an exploration of weathered and decayed elements which are patched together and where fabrics are deconstructed and distressed by hand. Reflecting the urban, cast away feeling which underpins the collection, technical designs are dismantled, dissected and re-imagined with experimentation.
