The new 'Bonjour' Fall/Winter collection recently launched.
This season again, one of our favorite French brands delights us with lovely dresses, tops and accessories whose inspiration is rooted in the past, while being so modern and timeless at the same time.
We loved everything, from the exclusive Pied de Coq pattern and Orchid print to the vibrant purple and moss green colors and the delicate embroideries and details.
A couple of 'behind the scenes' about this collection:
-The overall inspiration comes from the end of the 19th/beginning of the 20th century and especially from the "Art Nouveau" art movement, often inspired by natural forms and the unruly aspects of the natural world such as the sinuous curves of plants and flowers.
-The shooting of the collection took place in Brussels in the beautiful Horta Museum, built at the beginning of the 20th century by the architect Victor Horta and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
-The lovely models showcasing the styles are called Bonnie, Ysé and Suzanne.
Suzanne is 5 and her mom Marie has a really inspiring Instagram account, where she shares her everyday life in Lyon as a mom of four, through poetic text and pictures: bien des choses
Ysé and Bonnie are sisters and have 3 other siblings. Their mom Victoria has also a very inspiring Instagram account, perles_de_chine
-Bonnie bob hairstyle is reminiscent of the one of Louise Brooks, famous American actress in the 1920's.
-All the looks are styled with another famous French brand part of our French boutique selection: Collégien socks and tights.
The Victor Horta House/Museum
Built by the Belgian architect Victor Horta (1861–1947) who pioneered the Art Nouveau style during the mid 1890s, this house is among some of the most remarkable works of architecture of the end of the 19th century.
Horta's style is characterized by its love for open plan and the diffusion of light, as well as its brilliant joining of the curved lines of decoration with the structure of the building.
His integrated designs include wall coverings, mosaics, furnishings, lighting, hardware and door handles.
One of the most stunning area in the house is the staircase.
