PARIS, Oct 1, 2008 / FW/ — The new Spring-Summer 2009 collection continues with the theme of the two previous ones: research and development into masculine tailoring as the inspiration for new feminine items.
The collection, teaming traditional lines with a modern twist, takes its inspiration from David Hamilton’s book of photography “The Age of Innocence”.
It exudes sensuality and innocence. It is a confident collection with impeccable designs using fresh, high-quality fabrics switching between silk and cotton with hand-finished embellishments.
It comprises of shirts combined with transparencies, masculine tailored pants and shorts with high waistlines, high-waisted mini-skirts and a variety of dresses in knitted fabrics, silk and cotton. To finish off there is a selection of classic garments given a modern makeover such as jackets and waistcoats.
Blacks, anthracites and khakis make up the colour scheme for most of the range except\ for the shirts that have a brighter and broader palette ranging from white to petrol blue through a very acid yellow.
