The AEVES autumn/winter 2017 collection is themed “PROMENADES D'HIVER” (winter stroll).
Take the usual Sunday stroll through the Vincennes, on the outskirts of Paris.
The silent depth of the forest, the leaves turning shades of red,
the birds tiptoeing across the frozen lake…
The collection is inspired by everyday scenes of winter in Paris.
The designs are also influenced greatly by the abstract color block paintings of Serge Poliakoff in the 1960s.
Drapes of georgette as light as the breeze grazing the trees, pleats overlapping like layers of leaves, and cutting emulating the enclosure of a landscape—the items simple at first glance, when layered, present nuances of color and shape that are a signature of AEVES.
Relaxed meets couture in the pairing of fabrics of varying degrees of ebb and flow. This represents AEVES at its best and balances the woman’s leisurely mood with a touch of dignified beauty.
