trends of spring

Imagine a familiar yet strange dreamlike world. Mix periods together in an anachronistic way. Revamp vintage yet fall for the grace of the ephemeral. Rediscover a youthful freshness. Invent a modern techno romanticism.

An urban mood, in pale, bleached and artificial colors, teamed with the softness of grey-cast neutrals, and crossed by grating flashy colors.

- Fine and compact. Discreet textured weaves, smooth cotton/polyamide with a cool handle, raw denims in bleached pastels.
- Silky. Foulard twills in vintage viscose, pyjama-style silky fabrics. Iridescent and pearly surfaces on all grounds.
- Floaty. Translucent voiles, ultra-fine poplins, fine gauge jerseys for precious shirting.
- Knits. Tulles to pleat, lace, translucent jerseys.
- Yarn-dyeds. Creased, powdered, Prince of Wales checks and micro checks on all weights.
- Patterns. Necktie motifs, wallpaper prints. Watercolor, moiré florals, on frosted grounds.

Key women's wear products
