The rising popularity of bast fibres continues to gain ground in collections, with their intrinsic freshness, particularly suited to summer collections, infiltrating new universes. This season, a sophisticated mood infuses silhouettes, thanks to neo-plant-based materials with impeccable modernity.

Bast fibers are going upscale. Breaking with its casual associations, linen blends with silk and cellulosics for new evening wear proposals. Fluidity and shine combine with subtle slubbed textures, creating majestic fabrics imbued with naturalness.

For fluid, elegant silhouettes, in color blocks mixing vivid hues and neutrals. Restrained elegance is offset with shaggy accessories, and traditional techniques are seemingly executed by robotic hands. Craftsmanship 3.0, bridging human genius with the latest technological innovations.

Functional silhouettes also adopt sophisticated airs. Large volumes are fashioned from soft, slouchy materials, with bast fibers adding springiness to round, supple handles. The refinement of the materials is heightened by soft tones as well as discreet undyed shades.

The utilitarian wardrobe is revisited with a luxurious approach, for a chic urban wear aesthetic. Experiment with layering oversized monochrome pieces, with a no-genderspirit.
