Éclectic Studio: Easy couture from Paris
Shouldn't high fashion be as casual and comfortable as the shabbiest of much-loved cardigans? The designers at this young French label have responded to the times to bring us fashionable, wearable basics that are every bit as chic as the stiff, armoured jackets of the past.
Hand-sewn in the Veneto
The jackets, waistcoats and coats in the collection are hand-sewn in a traditional studio in Veneto, with a relaxed modern cut. The materials themselves are a combination of traditional yarns with embedded fibres that are elastic, waterproof and durable. Take, for example, éclectic's 'Country Jacket' that is already a big hit among fashion-conscious men.
