Les Copains is known for its expertise in knitwear and creative director Stefania Bandiera continues to forge an identity for the Bologna, Italy-based brand by building on the company’s strengths. Roomy and chunky, worn over an embroidered lace skirt, or a feather light cardigan and long skirt with a delicate cherry pattern, knits and their craftsmanship stood out on the runway. Wool bomber jackets with a flower motif were also standouts.
Bandiera channeled a modern Marlene Dietrich, mixing masculine-cut jackets or vests and trousers with sheer organza blouses. The color palette ranged from dark and gray, with macro Prince of Wales checks, and pale pinks and greens, combined with tartan motifs and brightened by embroideries.
