Six designers of Tranoï at the Palais Brongniart answer the elemental, unavoidable, most obvious question of all: What would you like us to know about this collection?
The “Bourgeois Gesture” collection identifies the concept of the bourgeois attitude and gesture.Bourgeois embodies the impact of heritage codes with a luxurious touch and classic silhouettes that certainly cater to a contemporary look. We express this bourgeois gesture to reflect this rebellious aesthetic.
This Collection embodies and embraces beauty without pretense, celebrating the return to life post-pandemic, bringing back the joy of dressing up. We referenced the movement of the Xhibelane (South African Tsonga iconic skirt), reimagined with a modern manner in to our prints and textures. There is a playful fusion of wool, synthetics, brocades, hand embroidery and craftsmanship that exudes affordable luxury. The silhouettes are feminine, playful and trendy. We take our woman on a journey of colour — from natural tones to shades of grey and black. The David TLALE woman loves and embraces the finer things in life!
The “Northern Lights” Autumn Winter 2022 collection is inspired by a light and colourful winter vacation. Garments are made with warm and cosy fabrics. Trying to look fresh and avoiding boredom and dark feelings — which we find charming and necessary in these cold days. The main inspiration is vintage photos in the snow. The models look happy, dressed in colours and relaxing in the cold. These photos are the base of the prints and silhouettes in order to design a certain mood. Imagine yourself at a ski resort in Aspen or an ice hotel in Sweden. Snow, people trying not to fall on the ice, skiers, kids with sleds, hot chocolate: how would you feel? That’s what DUARTE wanted people to feel with its AW22 collection.
And if tomorrow the moon was black… Autumn Winter 2022 “Black Moon” is an intriguing collection, playing with curves and shapes, on the edge between illusion and reality, where male and female intertwine and where yellow becomes black.
SEOKWOON YOON captures inspiration from a wide-ranging mix of historical and modern-art references. The label conveys a boundary between art and ready-to-wear with a conceptual theme throughout his collections.
This collection “Identity of Colours” represents our constant search for individual identity, a sense of materialising — into knit jacquards, structures, embroidery and sculptures. There’s the fusion of the dopamine therapeutic concept with the elements that stand for our personal identification as DNA: charts, finger prints and our brain synapses. Susana Bettencourt built this collection as a complex modular strategy in which all components are created with factory collaborations, yet the pieces can be built by necessity and with a faster response, thus avoiding waist and improving circularity.
