Outer & Over
Rich texture and enhanced touch.
Modified nature : plastic raffia with unusual handles, synthetic straw braidings, actually rubberized linen. .
Design primitives : tribal tweed, dishevelled fringes and summer hairies, spongy cottonies. Strings and cords with a supple heaviness, graphic weaves as if seen through a magnifying glass, thick yet airy gauzes.
Intensely vegetal : linen-y and cottony nobility in solar colours. Well-structured, sturdy basketwovens or diagonals. Natural handles and lively surfaces let speak the beauty of the material, without cheating.
Cotton fantasy : tone-on-tone texture, supple and mobile stretch jacket-weight piqués. Clean lightweight canvas and jacquards, Pop floral and fruit prints, or bold geometrics.
Blousons / Jackets
Frankly artificial : rubber-like and soft faux leathers, fun assemblages of net over plastic. Solid synthetics in deep colours with elegant sheens.
Stretch sheathing :double and bonded knits, super stretch for blousons and jackets with « athleisure » accents.
Summer softs : coarse-count cottons in supple weaves and knits. Cotton diagonals and basket weaves or supple, neatly drawn indigos. Thick and enveloping knits, textured jacquards and geometry.
More lightness and “cool” suppleness.
Refreshing lightness : more lightweight but with impeccable hold. Ultra-matte or glazed sheens. Very fine yarns, super-dense weaves, neat but crisp gabardine. Stable and blocked poplin-like knits. Elegant light denims.
Multiple stretch : ultra chic or relaxed, sporty or comfortable. Bounce and lively resilience with cottons and synthetic blends. Flexible suppleness in Lyocell and Cupro blends and denims.
Lively neatness :ultra-clean but not ironed. Fine cottons and linens with raw handles, faintly wrinkled, washed chambrays, gently washed-out, seemingly sun-faded casual cottons. Precise micro-weaves, and miniature basket weaves with a slightly faded-out look in wash-out pigment dyes.
Scratched denim : delicate surface scrapes and tiny tears, torn details, studied perforations, fantasy peeking out from holes.
Casual flowers : printed, jacquard or embroidered, to be washed-out and mistreated in post-garment production. A profusion of romantic fantasy, in denim or pigment dyes.
Dresses and Women's ensembles
A lively, dynamic fluidity
Dry fluidity: : ultra-matte crepes, tactile surfaces with subtly grained texture, discreet and slightly crinkly creponnes, shivering stretch. Refined, fluid linens with a vegetal feel.
Artificial gleam : sporty synthetic satins, everyday stretch silks. Enrobing, silky knits with thick fluidity and satiny gleam for ultra-glamorous dresses and trousers.
Stretch curves : smooth and matte viscose blends with « bubble gum » roundness, airy knits with scuba accents.
Refreshing or vegetal.

Snapping fineness : pure wools skilfully spinned, or synthetic and stretch blends, severe visuals and energetic performance. Perfectly integrated sports influences.
Country influences : the naïve freshness of ginghams with light grounds. Handkerchief checks and chambrays interpreted in fine-combed wool, summer cashmeres and perfectly serious cotton suiting.
Chic artisanal linen : combed in slubbed or blurry wool/linen blends, little neps and nubby knopped yarns, poorly spun aspects and deceptively coarse looking.
Vegetal suppleness : between casual and city, truly fluid linen or cotton blends, combined with viscose or cupro, washed and relaxed through finishing.
