Fashion Guest : Laure Nicolaï

The driving issue of recent seasons has undoubtedly been the search for sustainable and ethical alternatives in our activity sectors. This season seems more eco-minded and committed than ever. It combines two strong ideas that are essential to envisioning a common, caring future: sustainability and optimism!

And it’s delightful to discover that the fantasy found in the season’s decorations is matched only by the inventiveness of the new alternatives proposed: Seacell with antibacterial properties, neoplastics derived from olives or corn, biodegradable materials and more.
Fantasy is sometimes sparing, sometimes seductive, sporty or astonishingly unreal… and I would like to focus here on eco-friendly products that entice us, captivate us, dazzle us and really shake us up.

Here, an overview of an eco-wow selection – a reasoned approach to fantasy that’s as much about making people dream as it is about ensuring sustainability.


A dive into the urban metaverse, where substainaBolds mix Commuter influences with a digital and fantastical aesthetic.
We enjoy teasing the eye with optical stripe effects, almost like a blue light, with laser prints with surreal decorations, on ultra-fluid and sensual handles. A confident maximalism right down to the accessories, which go in for gigantic chains in colorful biopolymers.

Choices that align with a Modern Meta e-world trend.


Pearly gleams and precious sensory qualities on natural fiber bases and softly grained leathers. These luminous natural/synthetic formulas experiment with diverse alloys and recycling.

In a range of warm, laboratory-like shines featuring an interplay of ultra-sensory textures, products reflect an urge for a wondrous Eco Lab aesthetic, the perfect symbiosis of a benevolent and augmented nature.


Organic delicacy and grandiose vegetation inspire the new Sexy-Greens. Decidedly enticing, they bet on their fascinating naturalness to play on opulent fantasies, mysterious transparencies and forthright shines.
Inspired by a floral-chemical universe, a sophisticated organic cotton on delicate lace and the transformation of a pineapple fiber into a sturdy and precious textile can only be admired.

An Art Deco 2.0 made from the inspiring wonders of an ever-so-precious natural world.


Spotlight on the Poptimists! A leap into the comforting world of gentle nostalgia. Textiles, accessories and leathers play with childhood references like one of Proust’s tasty and reassuring Madeleines.
Splashy paint-looks on joyfully recomposed leathers and multi-component/mini impact/maxi effect neo-tweeds. We let the memories of yesteryear give a boost to a reassuringly maximalist aesthetic, part fun overcycling, part playful vintage.

Neostalgy conveys an anti-blues trend that redefines the cross-generational direction, and favors a gorgeously delightful jumble.
