Designer Alexandre Mattiussi described his collection as fit for “a weekend in Normandy with friends.” Cue a covetable lineup of luxuriously rugged pieces, such as a nubby herringbone tweed coat, chunky cable knit sweaters in shades of rich brown and wine, and shearling bomber jackets. A faded floral print that bloomed on panels inset into sweaters lent an edgier element to these resolutely down-to-earth designs. But Mattiussi stuck to his mission to design clothes that his friends would want to wear, rather than pushing a new look.
