Malan Breton, the New York-based designer designed a dazzling collection this season inspired by legendary Charlie Chaplin and his films of the 1930’s. The collection had a strong references to post-WWII millinery with blurred lines between genders.
The designer presented two collections this season, the ‘Malan Breton’ collection showed at New York Fashion week at Madison Square Gardens and ‘Fantome’ that was showcased in London at the Freemasons Hall.
The designer spoke of his’ Fantome’ collection in a more hopeful and calming tone then the New York one: “The colour palette and the patterns are reminiscent of Chinese watercolours and imperial prints in wood stain colours, and classic green, with tonal elements of pewter and apricot. The silhouettes are like liquid, second skins to the body, the suiting details inspired by pagodas in Taiwan, and an ode to the future, in an Orwellian fantasy…”
