Think Coco Chanel at the beach at Deauville and then, more famously, on the Côte d'Azur. This glamorous time and place is all brought to mind by the latest book by Mary Lovell, "The Riviera Set".
In the 1920s and 30s Chanel helped to liberate women from constricting corsets by creating easy, casual comfortable clothes made of jersey.
This collection is a celebration of that kind of ease that we all love: effortless clothes that can go anywhere. Comfortable knits, fresh linens from Italy and Ireland, refined stripes, pleats - crushed and crumple, and dresses in simple shapes made from gorgeous exclusive European fabrics that travel well.
A beachy holiday feel pervades: colours are fresh navy and white, stone, silver grey, denim blue, taupe, khaki and black with a few surprise highlights colours. Wishing you all a fabulous summer...
