The takeaway silhouettes

Iconic products are reworked and given a bold and authoritative new twist!
Proposals designed to address today’s concerns, the market’s upheavals and changes, all while allowing each creation and stylistic choice to be optimistically singularized!
Wardrobe mutations, expressed in everything from a fanciful to a tailored vein.

FANTASY

Silhouettes underline a highly visual approach to fantasy. The idea is to attract attention in real life and, even more importantly, on the screens of e-devices; with macro-motifs and contrasting colorways, even dared in coordinated head-to-toe looks.  A unisex trend with long, lean silhouettes, with quite visible and readable volumes, with a priority on materials that tell a story.Silhouettes underline a highly visual approach to fantasy.

A neat and delicate version of grunge, with deceptively damaged laces, jacquards with frayed edges, needle-punched chiffons, and scratched leathers echoing the second-life of materials that began with the popularity of vintage products. An indication of originality, of personalization. A final, crucial touch, where a random quality forges the unique quality of each silhouette.

 

TAILORED AND CASUAL 

Tailoring is evolving in step with the season’s ambivalent approach to shapes and fabrics, suppleness and precision, to update iconic designs.
Relaxed tailoring is paired with ultra-sophisticated fabrics with nobler fibers and precision yarn-plays. There’s a new freedom to how the wardrobe is used: varsity jackets and pants with wider cropped legs rejuvenate an increasingly mobile look for the city.

And conversely, there’s a dual ambivalence reflected in the contrast of clean shapes with fabrics with lively, blurred visuals, with the look of crumpled fabrics, and supple, even wrinkled wools.
For jackets with a straight chest, with emphasized shoulders and wider necklines to underline a certain stature.

SUPPLENESS

Archetypal cuts are freely and easily given a new twist.
Tailored looks stress an imposing state, which is omnipresent in digital communications. The shoulders and necklines of jackets are amplified with rounded or balloon sleeves and exaggerated collars. The bust is enhanced in coordinated ensembles with retro mini-skirts or more discreet snug-fitting pants.
In casualwear, overcoats and coats move away from workwear references with a finely feminine approach. This leads to the creation of iconic coats with elegant draped leathers or with cotton qualities blended with cellulosics for a suppleness that is at once heavy and supple.
The season’s strongly direction is furthered in the world of sports, and stands out markedly from the minimalist genderless trend of recent seasons. Sportswear is inspired by ready-to-wear codes: sporty tops go fluid, transformed into sweatshirt dresses for maximum mobility. Bra-tops and leggings sheathe without compressing and embrace fanciful details like more sinuous inserts, adorned with all over prints and lingerie-style perforations.
A refined suppleness strengthened by qualities that unite the fibers’ natural properties with sport-like performance.
