Alexandre Blanc was created as a ready-to-wear brand, using a haute couture approach based on small, sustainable collections. The brand mainly focuses on the volumes of garments to create looks for an aristocratic, natural, slightly bohemian woman, who is not afraid of showing her vulnerabilities and her freedom to wear garments that express her true personality. Through a distinctive combination of colours and prints, garments are constructed – but never constrictive – and they are designed for everyday use. All fabrics and garments are designed and made in Italy, with a local supply chain and a local approach to development and production.
Breaking free from the seasons, reworking fabrics in stock, reducing the offer to keep the essential, the honesty of creation, the right number of pieces to define a universe, a woman, a way of life, such was Alexandre’s main reflection this season.
This is how he worked on the 2021- C01 Collection, which is composed of 13 looks and a limited number of fabrics, his essentials, a fresco di lana, a crêpe de chine, plain or printed, a poplin, but also a straw yellow shantung. a little retro, in a cotton gabardine to revisit the trench coat, one of the iconic pieces this season.son.
The color palette is mainly made up of halftones: a very deep chocolate brown, and black which accentuates the work of the necklines as on the silk shirts cut out with a slightly fetishist spirit..
By drawing the most striking print, a sepia watercolor garden enhanced with a pen, Alexandre wanted to instill a contrast by integrating white dots on a chocolate background..
The jewels punctuate the silhouette, the buckles of the 1940s jackets have been mottled while the necklaces and belts, made up of recovered elements, mix different golds.
