the French Concession
The Spring/Summer collection takes its inspiration from the former French Concession in the metropolis of Shanghai. East truly meets west in this dynamic neighbourhood, where art galleries, cafes and hip bars abound. The district is famous for it’s distinctive tree lined streets filled with European architecture; these are juxtaposed with the sights and smells of the local Chinese street vendors.
The colour palette of the collection is taken from the buildings, cobblestones and trees exemplified in the French Concession’s streets. Subtle Oriental details and textures are infused on traditional French tailoring; and key features include Breton inspired stripes, silk knot buttons and Mandarin collars.
