Belgium born designer Cédric Charlier presented his SS20 collection at Paris Fashion Week, finding inspiration in the American West, in a journey between Arizona and Utah translating all natural colours of the American landscape into the collection.

Paris based Charlier created a chic interpretation to the traditional western wear using leather, denim and satin. This season, the Cédric Charlier woman is a chic combination between a Parisian and a cowgirl. She an independent traveller and dreamer with a contemporary aesthetic vision that is always ready to mix fabrics and styles.

Her wardrove contains casual pieces such as trench coats appeared alongside more sophisticated garment such as eyelet ruffle skirts, pleated shirts, strapless dresses or chic tops with fringes all in paisley prints, horse-printand thistle flowers. Motifs reminiscent of the techniques of the works of Belgium artist Jan Fabre.

The chromatic palette ranges from white to nude tones mixed with stronger colours such as ink and warm sandstone, and all looks are styled with natural leather bags and matching jewelled sandals with silk laces.
