Potion23 is a collection of whimsical, vintage-inspired fashions for unusual souls.
Potion23 is heavily influenced by the impeccable elegance of the 1930s and '40s, and the sumptuous, body-skimming silhouettes that defined the era. Potion23 revives the art deco magic of these historical styles and rejuvenates them with playful modern prints and bespoke hand-embroidery for a truly individual flair. Each design is an heirloom of the future, rediscovering the path of slow-fashion and the pursuit of quality, locality and sustainability.
