Art Meets Fashion in Belle Sauvage’s Spring Summer 2016 Collection Called Clash Royal
The British label lead by designer duo Virginia Ferreira (Argentina) and Christian Neuman (Luxembourg) is known for artistic and self-expressive contemporary womenswear
Christian Neuman’s vivid, abstract oil paintings literally splurge onto luxurious silks and organic cottons. The artist and designer seeks an extension of the paintings’ abstract dynamics onto the woman’s appearance and personality.
Belle Sauvage continues its rapid expansion in China through exclusive sales showrooms and extensive media presence. The brand recently collaborated with China’s Next Top Model through a capsule collection named Belle Sauvage X I.AM, exclusively sold via China’s largest online retailer www. secoo.com.
The independent fashion brand is looking to expand its retailer network in the United States through planned tradeshow participations in Los Angeles and New York.
Belle Sauvage’s Spring Summer 2016 collection called “Clash Royal” will be presented during Shanghai Fashion Week 10-16th October 2015 with DFO Showroom, Asia’s largest fashion showroom.
The collection strikes with vibrant colours on predominately bright and airy compositions printed on delicate crepe de chine and luxurious duchess silks.
Royal glamour and chicness is key and reflects in sharply tailored A-line and skater dresses, light summer jackets and voluptuous skirts. The abstract paintings applied to the fabrics embrace the overall tailored pieces often texture-enriched with sheer layering, net and lace details or carefully placed cut-outs. Napa leather panels appear as powerful feminine elements. Lighter summer pieces include organic cotton shift dresses, shorts and tops.
The Belle Sauvage philosophy is to combine avant-garde silhouettes with original signature prints and the brand vision embodies a complete picture of the modern, sophisticated, yet very feminine woman. Every Belle Sauvage dress is a statement piece and the contemporary shapes embrace the distinctiveness of the prints and enhance the woman’s individual personality.
The label achieved considerable media interest initially with extensive celebrity endorsement from known names such as Katy Perry, Kelly Osborne, Lady Gaga, Fergie, Sugababes, VV Brown, The Ting Tings and Juliette Lewis.
Asian brand ambassadors include Sammi Cheng, Joey Yung, Twins Ah Sa, Fiona Sit, Hilary Tsui and Momo Wu.
