Billtornade Men Fall 2011: Highland Fever

PARIS, Jan 26, 2011 / FW/ — Sending kilts and tartans that were cleverly interspersed with fur-lined jackets and mackintoshes, Francis and Jose Ronez, the designing brothers behind the iconic French brand Billtornade brought their audience to the British highlands.

And with “fog” on the runway, it was easy to imagine being in Scotland. But wait… this is not your usual Scottish costume. The Ronez brothers added some military elements in the double-breasted coats and jackets; there even was a school crest (or was it a clan emblem) thus giving the collection a very youthful and edgy feel.
