Converging classic Parisian staples with dizzying camouflage, that is how these familiarly minimal designs of Parisian label Études Studio presented its latest Fall/Winter 2016 collection for Paris Fashion Week. The Études collective — headed by artist Aurélien Arbet and graphic designer Jérémie Egry — gave in to this season’s 90s raver fashion influences. The designers conjured a rebellious offering packed with military and raver references, blowing silhouettes out of proportion and camouflaging their coats, pants and overalls with either khaki or black-and-white patterns.
Coming down the runway were billowy jackets interlaced with multi-colored straps, along with oversized, camouflage print cargo pants. Other military-inspired designs featured were oversized bombers, with a heavy dose of army green hues. The camouflage prints are reinterpreted in the collaboration with the Swiss artist, Fabio Marco Pirovino. The designer also featured handmade jacquards in a 3D effect and volumes with baggy XXL parkas and trousers. The Fabrics used includes chevron, jacquard, knit and jersey. Classic French mainstays such as tweed trench coats were reworked into ill-fitting silhouettes, balanced by bright orange and cobalt-colored accents in the form of ripped sweaters and jumpsuits.
