Taking the runway of Paris Fashion Week to present the spring summer 2019 collection Études mixes its signature style with a touch of sportswear. The collection nods to the classic pieces along with an occasional pop of colour. The inspiration with art continues into the SS19 season with the Los Angeles painter Henry Taylor becoming a guest artist with his paintings ‘Resting’ and ‘Man on Horseback in Naples, TX’ featured as prints on silk shirts and jerseys.
By appropriating a veritable melting pot of cultural symbolism, the collection considers the codes of uniform and their place in the postmodern wardrobe. A clash of poncho-striped knits, bandana paisley, airbrush stripes and American camouflage is transposed onto voluminous shapes, their context twisted through silhouette. Urban and outback tropes intertwine as faux suede fringing and Cadillac flames lick across oversized jerseys or down rodeo jeans, and baseball shirts are elevated in satin jacquards. Roomy tailoring is cut in summer wools and jaffa stripe linen, as light logo denim and twill play pale sky shades against Études cobalt blue. – from Études
