Summer as a condition of the spirit: lightness of thought and a desire to dress with hints of elsewhere, as though picked up along a journey, caught in the air, like traces of a gentle, all-pervasive breeze. A radiant, weightless collection made of the lightest fabrics discreetly illuminated by touches of metallic and iridescent, or woven and embroidered, yet impalpable as a veil.
The body takes centre stage: flowing jackets are modelled to the bust, or barely touch it; crop tops and shorts reveal glimpses of skin, sometimes covered by transparent pictorial fabrics; trousers accompany the silhouette and long, dancing skirts emphasise every step. The style is snappy and immediate, complemented by flat shoes, small hats and foulards. Bags, by contrast, are capacious, or minimal enough to hold just the essentials. The colour palette starts with warm golden beiges, offset by deep black, and cools down to tones of silver, chalk and mineral greys; deep notes of lapis lazuli and grape light up with touches of chartreuse and then blossom into an intense rose bloom. Everything flows lightly, like a breeze.
