Exploring the unparalleled connection, yet unavoidable conflict of family ties, I certainly have had my fair share of these, the new Icosae AW2017 collection takes its inspiration from historical family bloodlines and as Valentin and Florentin Glémarec said they were inspired by English royalty, which has of course, not been without its own fair share of family baggage.
Tribal families from Africa are also a source of inspiration, transformed into designs with iconic cuts and ornamental embellishments in the shape of branded metal details, patchwork, a range of different prints and embroidery.
Tying the collection together is the unique cut and turn sleeve and stripes of red white and blue of the French flag present almost on almost every coat, tailored jacket and street wear piece. Check too the mottos stamped punk style. Black is the dominant colour although there are two swoon making red coats. Then of course the finale piece a luxurious liquid-metal coat, a surprise definitely but terribly beautiful. A strict, uniform-inspired silhouette but with touches like the see - through undershirts that give it an ever soo.. sexy appeal. Too much to love !
