pleats, soft as a toadstool’s gills, on the first skirt. Metallic threads, loosely woven and so fine they threaten to break any moment, on the second.
The Perret Schaad collection combines nature and technology in a celebration of textile design at its most sophisticated. Their cuts are minimalist but utterly impeccable, sculptural with linen-mohair mixes, flowing like veils in crepes and silk.
Their colors are understated in grays, blues and browns, with a glint of turquoise or a shimmer of green. Variation comes first and foremost in the neckline, foregoing collars and framing the cleavage in ever new ways.
Perret Schaad say their designs “capture the hazy, shimmering mood of a summer day”. And I’d have to agree. But you wouldn’t want to wear their delicate silk dresses or those hip-length blazers only on hot days. They are so exquisite, refreshing and self-assured, you’ll want to wear them all year round, and next year, too.
