CHARLES & RAY EAMES
Optimism, creative energy, a love for colors... Inspired by the Fifties, this new season pays tribute to Charles & Ray Eames' happy lifestyle, in which playing and working are always linked. Apron dresses or pleated suspender skirts are worn with patent leather Mary-Janes or derbies. Trompe-l'oeil"tie" sweaters, smocked dresses, plaid kilts and black leather jackets play with funand colors. Bright red, electric blue and pure black are sometimessoftened with pale yellow; they settle on viscose crepe or poplin, are mixed with tweed or denim. They boost a newsatchel designed with L/Uniform. As for the iconic cherry, it has been reworked with color patches, along with graphic dots, romantic hearts, large stripes or playful squirrels. "The details are not the details", used to say Charles Eames, who would be 11O years old in 2O17: "They make the design."
A journey along the wild Irish coast inspired thistheme of collection. A coral sheepskin vest, a petticoat embroidered with large flowers, flannel trousers, a poplin dress belowan apron dress... Let's go for a long walk, wearing laced boots or fur-lined clogs, soft scarves, fluffy sweaters and warm shearling coats. From orangey-pink or coral to fir green, ginger or ecru: here, colors are a tribute to an untamed nature. Tartan coats, small collars in fur or tulle lace, jacquardpulloversadorned with strassor wool linen printed with an herbarium: this is an adventure within the imagination, romantic and rebellious at the same time...

Welcome to an enchanting garden, embellished with all our childhood memories: the most romantic flowers are shaded with faded pink and raspberry, clouds are printed on mohair coats. Garden moss, just still wet from the rain, deposit on velvet trousers. Herbarium patterns are printed on light pink, while the stars meet on the spangled tulle of a petticoat. Here and there, the exquisite romanticism of abroderieanglaise top or a wool linen dress are warmed up bywool, heart-printed felt, Mongolian lamb or soft rabbit fur. A delicious nostalgia softens the first winter days.
Tim Walker's dreamy and poetic world, his surrealist inspirations and his romantic atmosphere inspired the enchanting fantasy of this Couture collection. Dancing skirts and fluttering trousers twirl on strass Mary Janes or velvet Slip-on, while silk velvet shorts are enhanced with couture knots. Collars are made of ostrich feathers or rex rabbit fur, and glittery clutches have the shape of a heart. Precious fabrics are everywhere, embroidered with Lurex ribbons and silk flowers: crushed velvet, sparkling tulle, cashmere, fur and angora sing together a dreamlike score, arranged by Bonpointateliers.
