Reflecting this hopeful mood, the petal-pretty colour palette feels in early bud. Delicate hues of soft sage, oyster and porcelain blue uplift, whilst dainty meadow flowers dance across weightless white cotton voile dresses.
Set in the sun-soaked Cote D’Azure, the endlessly chic 1969 film, La Piscine, forms the backdrop for the collection. The glistening, symbolically charged swimming pool at the centre of the film’s action, coupled with the uber-stylish, André Courrèges designed wardrobes of its leading ladies Jane Birkin and Romy Schneider, provides rich inspiration for this season’s designs.
New shapes are 60s-infused and oscillate between Birkin’s gamine, high-hemmed playfulness and Schneider’s self-assured, expertly tailored elegance.
Offering a modern take on twinset dressing, crisp, cropped shirts are paired with matching pleated skirts, whilst wide-leg trousers are combined with clean-lined tank tops.
Cut from 100% cotton poplin, the Jolene midi dress is made for moseying around French markets in the spring sunshine, Birkin wicker basket in the crook of your arm. When the sun goes down, opt for the screen-siren Porcia dress to carry you from cocktails to dinner.
Adaptable and effortless, this is a complete capsule wardrobe of clothes to buy now and wear now, with an irresistible sense of anticipation for a summer that’s yet to unfold.
