This season, wardrobes, designed for an urban, active life, must mix efficiency with cool.
Inspired by the solid, industrial garments, monochrome, mono-material, monoblock, chic uniforms, shall all be convenient, comfortable, and easily put on, to face the city with confidence and elegance.

MINIMAL COUTURE

This season, the excellence and refinement of couture’s great figures get a plain and simple modern twist. It’s time for gracious, delicate neo-minimalism, where precious materials interlace with clear lines.

JET SET ZEN

Halfway through grunge slack and zen minimalism, here comes a revival of the early 90s trend from Belgium and Japan, in its valuable version. XXL wraps, in flowing volumes, simply curl up or contrast with the ultra short. They set a determined, slack look, in white, black or grey, tinted with mystical-like sensuality.

DOLCE VITA

Carefreeness and the sweet, 50s Italian way of life, inspired the season with some nostalgia: underlined waists, volumes in cases, petticoats... The charm is retro, dusted off by sculptural, modern cuts and graphical power. The look is modern, halfway through sweet coquette and femme fatale.
