Fun & Fashionable | Jean-Charles de Castelbajac | SS’15


This collection is a spectacle, a rupture that puts today’s woman front and center, dressed in a look that sublimates her beauty and transports us elsewhere. A new cosmic and urban wardrobe is born. A proximity to the audience who interact and discover the pieces they see pass before their eyes.

This season prints disappear, replaced by new imagination and detail crystallized in cut. Graphics are illustrated with tone-on-tone cut-outs of stars, messages and symbolic portraits, bringing new poetry to the clothes. The designer’s essential signature color blocks take pride of place. Screen pockets and omnipresent visors, oversize bags in leather and Plexiglas, and technical Velcro sandals enchant this new sport-chic silhouette, to give this commando of women a protection, a contemporary confidence.

Materials are light and sporty in completely Castelbajac colors; yellow, blue and red primaries like rays of sunlight, a tonal orange, all underlined by an ultra-pure white.

Cotton twill and viscose, airy and technical, are mixed accidentally with silk organza for shorts, jumpsuits, bustier dresses and sweatshirts. A pop camouflage is encrusted on retro-futuristic trench-coats and dresses while XXL trompe-l’oeil stitching decorates a raw cotton toile. These new nomads wear their jackets slung over their shoulders like backpacks. Knits in camouflage lace or cotton net complete the collection with a transparent sweater and raincoat, a purity filter. This is the signature of a new femininity: comfortable, functional and creative sportswear for tomorrow’s all-conquering woman, the soldier of peace of 2074.
