Designer Pierre Maheo unveiled Officine Générale Spring Summer 2022 Collection, that was inspired by Parisian style, on June 25h, at the recently finished Paris Fashion Week. The collection reinterprets the cuts of the uniform and the suit, and also explores an idea of hybridization with new sets that are not classic suits in the traditional sense. It brings comfortable looks and offers shapes for all styles and body types.
Doing better with less was also mandatory for me, especially given our new status quo. As someone who always likes to design timeless, this was a good time to do so. Nevertheless, I always make sure to renew my collections from one season to the next. My palette of fabrics continues to grow organically and is always sourced from weavers who possess genuine know-how. This season, a light and crisp poplin is available in over-dyed colors. Some prints are worked on the reverse side to soften their designs. I also used tie & dye, and even a purplish color, which is quite unusual for me! Recycled denim has a faded look that was achieved without using any water-based treatment. Tencel has a silk-like feel: it either blends with Norman linen or is used to craft sweaters in English ribs. There are also cotton twills from Japan and-I never get tired of them-Fresco wools which are perfect for sunny days. – Pierre Maheo
