SS22 Collection, a casual chic journey in the French Riviera, where neoclassical architecture and contemporary fashion blend together.

With seafront as backdrop and shining light, “Promenade des Anglais” on the picturesque Mediterranean Coast, was filmed by Hedi Slimane in a breezy Nice.

The scenario was dreamy enough to made you want to be there on holiday, wearing a timeless Parisian tomboy college look.

The show is a celebration of architecture and history of the French Riviera, known for its evocative Neo-classical movements.

 

The iconic ‘not too done’ allure of French girls, with their flowing bobs, ruffles and sequins, mixed with timeless Slimane’s pieces.

The collection is a mix of bourgeois tailoring, inspired by the British royal family’s frequent visits to the Grand Hotel and to the Hotel Regina, and modern casualness with a hint of party glam and streetwear cool. The collection interplays bobo-chic daytime looks to sensual yet hyper sophisticated night dresses; camouflage cargo pants alternate to cocktail evening open-backed sequined dresses.

 

We are used to the Creative Director lexicon but still, when looking at each show it’s like you can’t get enough of it.
