Winter is approaching and snowflakes seem to invade the wardrobe. an immaculate pure white is swept onto clothing. the coat, which has already been present for several seasons, didn’t end up being reinvented, whilst the white shirt, an essential piece and ultra present, was worked in all its forms. note for the new season that the white dress has become a must either with a sixties spirit or “jolie madame”, even proposed as an evening gown, exerting a certain sense of sensuality. we often associate white to black, but this time we focus more on navy blue; a new option which possesses a certain elegance, with a reference to the masculine wardrobe. designers of course play with it, choosing to work with this tone on evening dresses and in silky and luxurious fabrics. the british touch upon it, whilst navy was made chic at paris and milan and applied with the sportswear trend in new york. it is possible to play with this colour, to perhaps bring a bit of light by adding a touch of blue or violet. finally, confronting these two dominant tones, pastel colors are not left out and come to provide a breakthrough of prettiness in some catwalks, especially among italians, who compared powdered tones to sorbet, as a reminder of summer.
christophe lemaire: the white shirt is a constant too in my collections, which we always fall back to: in silk, cotton, oversized, long, as a tunic, with or without a collar.
peter dundas: ice-cream colours, sorbet colours: that’s what i wanted this time, not too strong, not too aggressive, however they are cut with blacks and dark colours.
