THIERRY COLSON Summer me Tender
Thierry Colson’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection is an invitation to cross the Mediterranean Sea, to join the Cyclades, and spend an endless Summer on the azure waters of the Agean Sea.
This season, let your imagination run free, all the way down (or up) onto millenary Grecian lands, and celebrate its lightness and innocence. Striped shirts and shirt-dresses blow out like boat sails, sheer fabrics let the wind’s softly kiss the skin. Thierry Colson’s feminine silhouette rises against the blue sky, here like a romantic Lolita might, there in a dress that hovers around the legs of its muse, caressing the sacred ground she walks. In silk and poplin, or aerial in a cotton gaze dress, she seems to glide, subtly showing off one shoulder, puffing up the other… She’s delicate like a poem, she chants the colors of her love to the sun, in blue, white, yellow…
French designer Thierry Colson created his ready-to-wear brand in 2005 after an initiatory trip to India and his encounter with its warm Summer, its blazing light. For some time, his name was uniquely associated to summer-oriented collections, reminiscent of his lasting impressions. In more recent seasons, he’s also – and successfully – dabbled in Fall and Winter wear.
