Playing with volumes and materials: this Fall/ Winter, Jean-François Bardinon designs affirmed attitudes with varied creations: Chapal proves it remains stylishly timeless. Leather is a sensual material that allows to craft one’s individuality and for Chapal, originality is expressed within each detail: deep shades of dye, leather and denim hybrids, camouflage printed silk satin. The luminous Orylag rabbit fur stands alongside copper tints of python leather, expressing an ideal manhood, represented in this collection’s purified lines, controlled volumes and effortless attitude.
Noble materials are reinvented in sharp colours and natural tones, monochromes available in autumnal shades of sand, red and copper, high-lighted by bright touches of vibrant red and deep blue.
Amongst these unique, true-lined pieces, the 1965 jacket imposes itself as one of the flagships of the season. Inspired by a piece worn by Alain Delon, this three-quarter length jacket is emblematic of the 60s: small collar, wide fit, large ram horn buttons.
The collection associates distinctive signs of Chapal’s excellency with the gentle and laid-back codes of sportswear: shirts are untucked, jackets are oversized. The strict codes of luxury are drawn back to leave space for a warmer figure.
The collection also invites to the layering of fabrics. It mixes comfort and style by juxtaposing the RAF bomber, one of Chapal’s masterpieces made from thick shearling, to pilot boiled wool trousers. Short jackets, mid-length to full-length coats inspired by the past are reworked into energetic, accessible and impeccable fits.
Hallmark of the brand for nearly 200 years, leather is available in all shapes and in its finest finish. By preserving the components that made the reputation of the House, the new collection cultivates the unpretentious elegance, so distinctive of the brand.
