Rainproof collection in the wind

Accustomed to collaborations (Fendi, Ami, Comme des Garcons, etc.), the K-Way brand has joined forces this season with Parisian label Soeur, co-founded by Angélique and Domitille Brion, to present a capsule collection of rainwear, functional elegance. . Seven pieces were thus created, including a raincoat that looks like a trench coat, a little no-name vest, a windproof shirt and pants, or even a bucket hat to play under your chin when it rains, all available in a beautiful beige. Aubergine and bronze tones dear sister. We also recognize, in flattering cuts and subtle details, the brand’s feminine and elegant undertones. But the novelty, first of all, lies in the use of a new waterproof material developed by the K-Way research and development office called “2.1 Amiable” and used for the first time in this collaboration. It’s an innovative fabric made from recycled nylon, the production of which both parties claim consumes 40% less energy than usual. The fabric is also intended to be more durable, with a ripstop structure (a special fabric that resists wrinkles and tears). If the Soeur logo is discreetly affixed to the pieces, it is primarily the famous K-Way tricolor tape that we see as a soothing Proust madeleine in rain and wind.

Hay absolute comes into play in the last lap. It’s like being in a stable. Since the 1980s, we have been trying to remove all traces of animality from perfumes and replace them with the scents of purity. Marc-Antoine Corticciato is one of those rebel perfumers who fights head-on against this all-encompassing puritanism. Li Pa.

The most classic models that are meant to create the perfect shoe assortment sometimes sit very restrained next to daring offerings, like this new Masonic ankle boot, which reveals a metal buckle with an oval pattern.
