Style Focus

Women's

PROVOKING UNSTEADY BALANCES

Focusing on a "cubist" skirt, prettily disordered,
on contrasting and mixed stripes, asymmetric folds and irregular pleats,
elaborated pre- or post-garment manufacturing.
Yarn-dyed or printed shirting-style cottons or everyday silkies. Playing on improbable blends right through to ribbons, accessories and trims, zips and jewellery.

COVERED WITH TRANSPARENCY

Transposing transparency and ultra-lightness onto outer-layer pieces.
Coats crispy as tracing paper, trenches with glass reflections or fine-crafted cottony jackets. Contradictory layers over deliberately contrasting pants and tops. Plastics over rustics, naturals over artificials.
Trims become invisible and deliberately synthetic.

BOOSTING THE SIMPLICITY OF THE DRESS

Paring down shape to the extreme simplicity of a rectangle, then gracefully puckering, gathering, tying. Favouring featherweight linens and shirting cottons, delicate rustics and decoration with light stippling.  
Contrasting the look with accessories and trimmings, playing with plastics and metals in dynamic colours.

Men's

SUBVERTING SUITS

Boldly designing a non-conformist suit. Brazenly doing without the jacket, replacing it with a woven top, while hewing to the elegance of fine combed wools, discreet end-on-ends and rigorous mohairs.
Pushing the boundaries of 'no gender' with almost feminine embellishments, not refraining from carefully engineered embroideries, or flowers in hidden or tiny details.

POETIC OVERALLS

Taking overalls out of workwear and jeanswear and transposing them into chic and light versions for the city. Selecting only refined linens, plainly lighter-weight denims, elegant and relaxed vegetal suitings. Borrowing details directly from suits and shirts, tailored collars and pockets, buttoned cuffs, discreet zips.

ASSEMBLING IN CONTRADICTION

Enjoying exploding garment proportions, emphasising a bermuda in a baggy street version and contrasting it with a narrow jacket, freely mixing fits and lengths.
Setting slightly rustic blurry woollens and suitings against technical canvases and gabardines or luggage-like pure polyamide. Contrasting ultra chic trimmings and finishings or a sartorial detail with worn looks and aged metal in a jeanswear vein.

Casualwear

WOMENSWEAR

JOYFULLY UNCOORDINATED

Relaxing and rejuvenating the dress to wear like a tee-shirt.
Sketching out a relaxed and fanciful femininity composed of spontaneous assemblies, stitched or even glued with adhesive tapes, zips and decorated snaps.
Fluid crepons, light knits, Pop-like decorations or graphic embroidery and openwork worked in friendly and cheerful combinations.

ENERGISING NAÏVETÉ

Adding together lace and relaxed fleece, thinking extra-mini!
Easy-wearing, frilly openwork lace, slightly synthetic eyelet embroidery.
Supple fleece and refined terries with artificial handles.
Accessories with a corsetry influence, in plastic and lace mixes, both hi-tech and hyper-feminine.

ENERGIZING THE UTILITARIAN

Giving a fresh take to the workwear and utilitarian trend, and cultivating anti-camouflage with sturdy, colourful cottons or synthetics, lush decoration on sportswear and jeanswear bases, jungles and flowers to grow patinated with time. Bringing large volumes, the oversized, comfortable ease and an all-terrain approach together with sparkling and clearly visible decoration. Using colourful braids, broadly belting, playing with deliberately fun finishings to stride through the city like in search of new fashion territories to conquer.

MENSWEAR

CANDIDLY CHARMING

Adopting a menswear romanticism, a casual fluidity, a faded but not cutesy softness.
Drawing on the features of jogging wear for elegant pants in cottons and linens blended with lyocell or cupro. Deconstructing the fresh and languid shirt in silky or very lightweight versions. Gracefully flowering, exaggerating with a coy smile.
Cultivating refinement down to the last detail, with chiné zips, buttons and fasteners with a watercolour patina and whitened metals.

Active Sport

MENSWEAR

FRESHENING-UP TECH

Cutting it short, traveling light, adopting the positive attitude of sports in "almost" everyday fashions.
Small volumes, shorts in suiting fabrics with naive checks.
Windstops that fit in the hand, techno-poetic iridescence, functional fabrics equally good-looking and effective.
Deliberately sporty accessories and trims, signage piping, playful snaps and stoppers, luminescent accents.

SPORTS NIGHT OUT

Diverting swimwear and sport fabrics and codes for evening and dressy looks.
Re-evoking the jumpsuit in an ultra-glamorous way, revelling in stretch fluidity, swimsuit-style locknits or sophisticated crêpes with a silky and elastic thicknesses.
Borrowing details and trims from lingerie, swimsuits and sports.
To be worn with evening jewellery and accessories.
