FROM RIVIERA WITH LOVE, the SS16 collection

Head for the Rivera with Cuisse de Grenouille this summer! The Cote d'Azur of the sixties has inspired the style for the new collection. With chic simplicity, imagine a hazy, sun filled ambiance for a gentle life oscillating between the beach and the casino. We dream of Alain Delon's style in the classic film La Piscine. We imagine lying on the beach, sandals in hand, shirt unbuttoned, much like David Niven in Bonjour Tristesse. A simple wardrobe, stylish yet sporty, comprising of t-shirts with Art Deco references, as well as of swim shorts with geometric prints. The collection uses a wide range of flexible materials, from knitwear to eternally stylish white denim that discovers a new lease of life.

 

The range of shorts has become even greater this season with the arrival of board shorts in numerous colours. There are more than fifty pieces available now with new elastic cords for a resolutely vintage look. T shirts and sweaters bringing back to life the graphic fonts inspired by the old tourist posters of the Riviera, an Art Deco period, with very a carefully stylized font and carefully constructed lettering. Shark collared shorts are available along with their linen counterparts to form a very French look that would not look out of place in a sixties film.
