Denim manufacturer Artistic Milliners said today that it has collaborated with designer Tilmann Wröbel for its “Made in Paris — Frenchie” capsule collection that will debut at Kingpins Amsterdam on Apr. 18 and 19 and later showcase in New York and London.
Designed by Tilmann Wröbel, also known as Monsieur-T, the collection was inspired by “effortless yet unpretentious but sophisticated style,” and represents “staples over trends [and] statement pieces as everyday basics with a unique gusto,” the company said. Its collection of women’s and men’s jeans, blazers, shirts and trenchcoats was created in a premium workshop in Paris, where each garment was individually sewn and fitted. Parisian artist Jérôme Macé photographed the collection in Paris. Wröbel has worked with the likes of Christian Dior and Nina Ricci.
Wröbel said, “When I first saw the fabrications, I was immediately seduced by the slightly semi-shiny coatings, the soft hand-feel and the very responsive stretch construction. Immediately my thoughts went to more subtle [and] minimalist finishes,” as well as “mixes and matches of shiny and matte denim-fabrications. On the inside, the designs would be finished with hand-numbered sateen labels, a bit like the exquisite ones used in the past on each individual haute couture item.”
“While brainstorming with the Artistic Milliners team on the creative elements of the project, souvenirs of my past designer time in the Paris Haute Couture crossed my mind. I couldn’t refrain from thinking about very French, crafted, almost handmade French Five Piece. A group of denim products which could suit their owners from casual Paris days, to smooth and sharp Parisian nightlife.”
