Fashion Trends Spring/Summer 2007

First Class Cruise


A desire for new purity, an elegance approaching a certain form of minimalism. Find the balance between the feminine and the masculine, with a 1920’s-30’s touch of retro influence. An athletics style for a silhouette nicely designed by little pieces of anatomical shapes plus a retro-sports style, inspired by tennis and regattas. Truly feminine is a fluid, sophisticated silhouette of « hanging dresses » in salmony tones.


A radical, minimal spirit, tending towards femininity.
For bottoms and outerwear: a very chic, sporty and modern palette in a harmony playing on the whiteness and light of beige-whites and pale greys contrasting with brown and black. For tops and small pieces: a more feminine spirit in a skin-coloured harmony of salmony beige and skintone of coppery reflects or else with touches of bleached pastels.

A more minimal, radical spirit makes a strong comeback after a very « show-off » period.
A chic, elegant look with accents of retro-sports and a masculine style revisited. New long, fitted jackets are extremely modern in a supple silhouette with a « gymnastic » feel or else over a « clean » ensemble of shirt, tank-top and wide pants.
Another, more close-fitting look of tops and pants with anatomical yokes and panelling.
More feminine is a light, fluid silhouette of tops and dresses hanging from the shoulders.

Key products
- Long, fitted jacket with hem darts
- Anatomic cuts, sophisticated by material mixing
- Fluid, body-hugging multi-panelling
- Buttonless shirts
- Giant, very graphic, uneven graphics enlivened by flat flowers
- Elongated lapels and patch pockets
- High waists
- Pleating
- Contrasting inset bands
- A « sports club » spirit revisited: blouson, contrasting buttons, masculine stripes

For spring: very clean qualities of drills, gabardines, poplins, crêpes and denim in wool, linen, cotton and blends.
A masculine wool spirit illustrated by chalk and stroke stripes, in light/dark contrasts or in tone-on-tone damask baguettes: in nonchalant ultra-soft wool, occasionally blended with polyester or cotton.
A gym inspiration for knits and stretch Lycra blends.
Great fluidity for jerseys and heavy crêpes in viscose, polyester and polyamide.
For a more feminine spirit silk is treated in a sophisticated, even extravagant manner: chiffons, crêpe georgette and satin, enlivened with pintucking, pleating, little banding and fringing for ultra-feminine dresses and hanging tops.
Silvery and mercurial effects for imitation leathers with coatings or mat sequins.
Giant, graphic patterns, plays of « disturbed » lines and curves, sometimes enlivened by flat flowers.

Make-up: A total look spirit based on tinted beiges full of shade and light. Extremely sophisticated, it is modernized by the addition of mercurial grey.
Hair: A clean, constructed spirit, controlled either by short tomboy style cuts, architectural pageboys or else pinked effects. An athletics, sport spirit is felt in the wide bandeau holding back long hair for a neat, impeccable look.
Motifs: a geometric, optical, graphic spirit inherited from the creations of Vasarely.


A color range exuding elegance and refinement : pure white, pale summer gray, pinky beige. For a radical contrast, these pale neutrals play off dark tones : violet bordeaux, inky navy blue.
Two vivid hues: coral pink and menthol green liven up the range, bringing a more sporty touch.

A definitely chic man whose retro-sport style is inspired by 20’s and 30’s tennis, golf and yachting looks.
A certain form of minimalism influenced by an athletic style that adds modernity and defines the silhouette via shapes and anatomical cuts
A fairly straight, clean silhouette defined by small anatomically-shaped pieces or fitted pants.
