Tops & Shirts
Women's Tops and Blouses
Weightless fineness : impalpable matt silks, in viscose or synthetics with a smooth fluid handle, soft languid cottony voiles, with softly washed finishings.
Crepons and shivers : featherweight silks enlivened with a touch of air. Lively surfaces, mini waves, nano-barks, vibrant cloqués, mini-veinings and petal textures.
Fantasy voiles : cotton or cotton/linen transparency delicately enlivened with cut-yarns, discreetly figured, stippled with little dobbies like men's shirtings.
Everyday lace : effervescent and noisy totally, fine like Chantilly, or very open like coloured voiles. Fun lingerie to adopt for fashion uses.
A little dose of femininity :featherweights, suppler behaviours, flowering pinks. End-and-ends, chambrays, mini-stripes, familiar menswear visuals shifter onto translucent or ultra-light grounds. Jacquards, cut-yarns, dobbies finely interfering with stripes and little checks.
A vegetal wave : llinen blends or fine cotton slubs, highly controlled imperfections, dry handles. Very chic or casual, natural asperities livening up patterns and semi plains.
Muted checks : handkerchief and tiny checks with faded contrast, colourways hinting of a past liveliness or freshness.
More than perfect : ultra homogeneous surfaces, impeccably smooth, flawless satin. Crisp or barely washed finishings. Implacable simplicity, decisive lines, very graphic wide and contrasting stripes.
Indigo suppleness : less weight, cotton or linen blended with Lyocell or modal, figureds and plays on transparency.
Linen-y overshirts : indigo or gaily coloured. Like a dress or a lightweight jacket.
Knit Tee-shirts and Tops
Intermittent transparency : small or large bold, horizontal stripes, alternately opaque/transparent, natural/synthetic. More cottony than silky burnt-outs and cut yarns.
Dry shiverings : crêpes with tiny, sandy grains. Silky crepons, fragile-looking linen-y and vegetal fantasy voiles and jerseys.
Joyful mesh : lcottony or assuredly synthetic sports mesh or lingerie-style tulle, either very delicate or more primitive. Elaborated plays on knits and stiches, openwork florals, Pop-Art graphics, stretch lace.
Soft roundness : soft sweatshirt knits, terries with natural accents and dryer handles, very supple and malleable scubas.
Committed and artistic.
Bitter sweet romanticism : climbing or bouquet-style thorny roses, sticky sweet colourways... and the same in darker, negative-style versions on sombre backgrounds.
Inhabited jungles : lstifling vegetation, pervasive foliage where birds of paradise and exotic animals hide, disturbing, carnivorous flowers. Cartoon-type treatments, handmade gouache or badly inked designs... anything but photographic.
Majestic Africa : lan XXL celebration of ethnic, primitive, and shamanic interpretations. Totally recomposed, broad brush strokes, amazing and spectacular, on delicate and light silky bases
Figurative Pop : simplified and immediately readable. Everyday fruits and objects, inspired by logos or pictograms, endlessly repeated and gaily coloured.
Architectural geometry : mathematical drawings, abstract sketches, hash marks and blueprint-style pencilling.
