For Spring/Summer 2013, CHALAYAN GREY LINE draws inspiration from summer sports, appealing to a younger Chalayan customer who likes body-con fits and short tennis hemlines. A modern active take on garçon style, the collection mixes new and signature Chalayan looks. Fabrics are also influenced by American performance sportswear, and include cotton, jersey, denim and fleece.
Crisp white is the base for vibrant sunset orange, flora green, sky blue, melon and lime green. The V-neck hoodie and boyish sweats remain feminine with lace and organza trims. Layering, draping and ruching are everywhere. The digital floral print for the jumpsuit, dress, sleeveless blouse and tunics was originally shot in London's Kew Gardens.
