What to wear on a picnic with friends

Whether improvised or not, a picnic is often a casual affair – but you can still be stylish. Forget about fitted cuts. Sitting cross-legged, with a glass in your hand and something sweet to eat, you can focus on the essential: making memories. Your best allies are your clothes. From AMV, of course.


Wide-leg trousers


These wide trousers are an ode to free movement. With your legs stretched out or crossed, corduroy adds a fashionable yet relaxed touch. The bonus? The elasticated waist, so you can eat all you want without feeling constricted. 

The PADOW trousers


A white T-shirt


A must in all seasons. An iconic classic since our creation in 2005, the white 100% cotton tee reinvents style while ensuring endless comfort. Our DNA piece, from Day One. 

The DECATUR T-shirt


A knit jumper


Be ready for a sudden breeze by keeping a lightweight knit jumper in your bag. In magnolia or lime for a pop touch.

The DAMSVILLE jumper


A sweatshirt

The piece to get your hands on before back-to-school season? A sweatshirt. For an absolutely retro silhouette that looks great in summer and winter, rain or shine (or wind or snow!).
