Belgian designer Cédric Charlier presented both Women’s and Men’s Spring Summer 2018 collections at his atelier on the Rue de Sévigné during the Paris Fashion Week. Inspired by the artist Todd Knopke’s work, Felipe, the collection is both casual and graphic.
More than ever for the designer, masculine and feminine, flowing fabrics and ergonomic cuts, organic and graphic, nonchalance and sophistication, cease to be opposing notions. He reconciles them to achieve pure elegance, devoid of any ostentation, clear ideas coupled with confident gestures. His credo has never varied by one iota: clothing must enhance the man or woman who wears it, and not the other way around. Todd Knopke’s work, Felipe, is the starting point of the collection. It shows a slightly worn out pink foam armchair, over which a golden shawl drapes in elegant wavelets. Here again, we find the Charlier spirit, his concept of elegance where God is in the details. – from Cédric Charlier
