The lookbook of our new SS 23 collection is online, and my heart is racing! It is available for free download in PDF format here but you can also view it online here.
La Piscine is first of all, a desire for very bright colours, for a Technicolor wardrobe. A little retro music was playing in my head, I had images of pools in pastel tones like David Hockney, of varnished nails splashing around and pretty light outfits, at the crossroads between Florida and the Riviera. I imagined a very cheerful wardrobe for beautiful elegant women sipping a cocktail on a sun lounger, and that's how La Piscine was born.
When I was working on the aesthetics of this collection, I decided to go for the first points of reference of the pool: diving boards, slides, something playful! And this pop universe is catapulted into a very glamorous Fauve woman, like the women of the 60s who were dressing up just to sit by the water.
A look that moves between the elegant women of the Mad Men series, the rebellious Mrs Meisel who wanders around the Catskills, a melancholic Lana Del Rey and the divine Romy Schneider who has the blues in The Pool. I also saw the genre film 'Don't worry Darling' not long ago, and the sublime Florence Pugh on the verge of a nervous breakdown in those little fitted dresses really appealed to me, because this collection is not to be taken at face value: you laugh, you dance, you get angry, you run away, you assert yourself in the La Piscine wardrobe!
The sewing pattern collection
Our new collection includes 5 new sewing patterns:
The Grand Bain shorts and the Salto top for strolling along the water's edge with sandals in hand, the Nage Libre jacket that can be slipped on over the swimming costume, the Tremplin cargo trousers with their many insanely feminine details, and the Haut Vol dress, divinely crafted and which elongates the figure. All the details of the cut, accessories and choice of fabrics can be found in the lookbook.
