Chopova Lowena's viral skirt, a staple among fashion's in-the-know style stars, is about to get even bigger.

Essentially a pleated kilt attached to a wide leather belt with a series of tiny carabiners, the hero garment counts Dua Lipa, Charli XCX, and Ella Emhoff among its fans. And with the success of Chopova Lowena's first official London Fashion Week show, the piece is bound to welcome a fresh new cohort of devotees.

For Spring/Summer 2023, Emma Chopova and Laura Lowena devised several fresh takes on the hit skirt, riffing on the silhouette in denim, floral-embroidered silk, and what appeared to be woven tapestry. Styled on male and female models, the skirt was worn both high on the waist and slung around the hips, likely a nod to fashion's taste for all things low-rise.

The skirt's famous carabiner attachments were also translated onto pants. The waistband of a particularly stylish pair of boot-cut jeans were pierced with the metal clips, this time adorned with tiny, whimsical charms in the shape of horses and pacifiers.

Merging the schoolgirl polish of pleats, the punk-ish sensibility of leather and hardware, and the homespun appeal of artfully clashing prints and colors, the piece is a fashion oddity, a garment that stands out wherever it goes.

In fact, they're so eye-catching that it's impossible not to note a passerby wearing the brand speciality. Speaking of notes, write this down: next spring will be the season of the Chopova Lowena skirt.
