New Spring Summer 2023 collection is a memory of a nordic summer, a tale marked by muted shades, graceful aromas and delicate fabrics, culminating in a dip in the sky-blue ocean. Cliffs of Alabaster Majestic, regal cliffs of Alabaster seen from afar. They signal both arrival and departure. A journey through colours, aromas and flowers that, without resorting to sameness, transform into embroidery, textures, volumes and fabrics. The range of colours marking the beginning of the season includes shades and patterns with that signature Breton charm, tones characteristic of travelling and reaching the seaside, like new experiences contrasting against a white canvas. Blue, a mainstay of timeless style, is punctuated by bunches of delicate Liberty flowers and floaty tulle appliqués, and flanked by bold, durable black and white-striped Roma-stitched fabrics. The organic cotton used to create every knit piece in the collection is embellished with fully hand- embroidered floral motifs and, while shades of blue veer towards sage green, the collars—a stylistic staple of the brand’s defining heritage—stand out with bold geometric allure on shirts and dresses and feature layers of appliqués or light inlays around the edges. The morning breeze remains: outerwear and wind-resistant jackets are a must. For her, long cotton gabardine trench coats with raglan sleeves and Liberty Fabric edging. For him, boxy blazers with thick denim-blue, sand-beige and cream-white stripes and patch pockets, and for a sporty look, wind-breaking jackets in glossy sage-green nylon with technical mesh lining. The gardens of Monet Like in an impressionist painting, the shades of nature multiply, like small touches of colour on the canvas, and come together in perfect harmony: entering the gardens of Giverny, the water lilies sway gently on the water and the air is brimming with lively scents. The tulle applied to dresses, skirts and ruffles, or just to create three-dimensional appliqués, offers a fresh take on volume. Delicately shaped garments in dusty pink, olive green, powder paper and lemon yellow boast distinct details: sweatshirts with large ruches frame the figure, asymmetrically designed dresses give skirts movement, and ruffles sit on vests and shirts. For her, a co-ord and dress in wool-blend fabric, with a thick multicoloured stripe with dusty undertones. Floral prints with exclusive patterns that, on dresses, boast a watercolour-like finish make a glorious return. For him, a printed lakeside motif against a light blue and beige background, and a two-tone camouflage motif are particularly noteworthy. The dailywear range includes sweatshirts and T-shirts with sporty water- based prints. For formal occasions, utterly elegant, check-patterned co-ords, Bermuda shorts and shirts.
Arriving in Saint-Malo The beach, a place to play and forge friendships, becomes a destination for all little explorers who build castles grain by grain. On the horizon, between the sea's high waves, the sun sits in the blue of the water.3 For her, looks with that marinière charm, reinvented with a combination of thin blue and green stripes applied to floaty dresses and front-buttoned jumpsuits, or even maxi dresses in warm, vibrant colours like red and fuchsia, finished with ruffles. For him, T-shirts, shirts and polos retain the iconic pairing of blue and white in striped and check patterns, which pair perfectly with classic white linen trousers or red gabardine Bermuda shorts for a touch of colour. The swimwear capsule is playful and fun: one-piece swimsuits with romantic ruching around the edges, decorative floral prints and appliqués, two-piece swimsuits with floral motifs and bows, and Bermuda shorts with cute multicoloured crabs. Perfect for afternoons spent bathing in the waves of the deep blue sea. Among the highlights this season are garments crafted in collaboration with Artetica, a network of professional craftsmen based in Salento, producing hand-worked embroidery and keeping the oldest Italian artisan tradition alive. The collection features: a crocheted organic cotton cardigan, an A-line linen dress with a crocheted organic cotton bodice, and a sleeveless, empire-style linen top with a crocheted bodice.
