Updating S/S20 : An assertive urban woman


A bold, graphic elegance expressed in head-to-toe colour or a combination of motifs and colours. Cuts are clean, shine is present but subdued, and fabrics are smooth, compact and structured, contrasting with softened, silky and feminine tops worn right next to the skin. 

Motifs are graphic and precisely drawn: vegetation in bold, layered flat tints, or enlarged and highly colourful geometric combinations. Accessories are structured, micro-bags are colourful, shoes are either elegant like 90’s pumps or quirky, as in giant blob-sole sneakers.
