Inspired by Wes Anderson’s distinctive colour palette, these new silhouettes are meant to be bold. The vibe? Destructured, thanks to a fun layering effect and a monochrome shade palette. “This 2023-2024 autumn/winter collection is lively and unfussy, with the carefree attitude of the festive season. The mood is colourful and comforting. The materials are textured. It’s an ode to glowing winter lights,” explains the duo. Here’s a selection of pieces to add to your holiday wardrobe without further ado.

#1: A tartan coat 

“With its napped texture and oversized tartan pattern like those on cosy winter blankets, this coat is perfect for the festive season. It adds a touch of casual elegance to any silhouette.”

#2: A soft jumper  

“This is the kind of piece you want to snuggle up in. It’s both comforting and colourful enough to spruce up your outfit.”

#3: Jogger-style trousers

“Inspired by a 1970s style, this piece is just what you need for endless Christmas meals. Thanks to its elastic waistband, you’ll stay comfortable all night long.”

#4: A striped polo neck

“This fitted jumper is like those thermal undershirts that we didn’t want to wear as kids, but that we can’t do without now. We love its 90s look!”

#5: An alpaca cardigan  

“This soft and timeless cardigan is like a warm hug. You’ll want to wear it all day as you watch the snow fall outside.”

#6: Flannel trousers

“These slightly napped kids’ trousers are soft and comfy, like upgraded pyjamas.”
