This June 2015, our fall/winter collection was presented in-house in Belgium. Here is the photo coverage of the private show and a presentation of our major pieces for the coming season.
Developing the inspiration introduced with the pre-collection - referencing the Mods aesthetics - the womenswear main collection focuses on warm and comfortable pieces, playing with color and fabric mixes, offering a more rock-influenced and contemporary wardrobe. Fun and tactile faux fur reasserts its presence within the outerwear range, from a generous parka imitating snow lynx to little cropped jackets with contrasted lining. Padded jackets are lightweight, while coats have a menswear flavor, reinterpreting the classic man’s overcoat to make it current.
Houndstooth and checks -in every size- boost the silhouette, adding their urban twist and graphic energy. Pantsuits can be worn mismatched, their shawl collar jackets evoking the dandyism of traditional tuxedos. A long dévoré velvet dress is bold and chic, underlining the eclecticism of the womenswear line. Crepe dresses are printed with tachist patterns, while washed silk is used for short-sleeved,
geometric dresses, bringing more fluidity and ease. Pants are either skinny or menswear-inspired, using surprising fabrics, while pleated skirts and flared minis take us back to the 1960s. Getting more and more luxurious, knitwear is rich and textured. A new yak yarn is used on several styles with hemstitching, English rib, and trimmed with wide stripes of silky angora.
From furry sweaters with a “teddy bear” feel to super kid washed mohair, knitwear has a more gentle hand. A new basic, baby alpaca is used for round neck sweaters and cardigans, replacing previously used cotton and wool yarns. Lurex socks add their metallic sheen, which can also be found on a menswear-inspired pantsuit. Chili orange is the strong tone of the season, balanced with gray, cream, green and blue.
