Unable to travel due to restrictions and border closures due to the pandemic, many designers were digging into their archives to do what they like to call “an exercise in introspection“. This was the case of the design trio of Études, Aurélien Arbet, Jérémie Egry and José Lamali, who drew inspiration from the brand’s archives to reframe their decade-old best-ofs in a new perspective.

“We decided to focus on styling, composing looks out of existing pieces – and recreate from this starting point”, explained Aurélien Arbet.
Thus, the collection displayed a new expression of the brand’s identity. The range was fresh, including plenty of newness made from old looks that have been dusted off and offered in new proportions, with a touch of the 70s, sportswear and streetwear.
The patterns were quite varied, featuring camouflage prints, a flame pattern and a bleach treatment as if it was done with bleach while the color palette remained in warm, earthy tones, in line with the mountain setting used in the background for the collection.
