This marked the first season designer Riadh Trabelsi showed his brand under the name Iregular. Formerly called Basscoutur, it will keep using upcycled and deadstock fabrics, such as cashmere, mohair, leather and cotton, for its garments.
Trabelsi explained: “It was necessary to have a circular discourse with Iregular, and we liked the name.”
The brand, alongside its fashion collection, has two vintage stores and is stretching into music and art via a new coffee bar, called Dimanche, where everything inside is for purchase. It’s opening in Paris’ Barbès neighborhood.
Iregular’s fall collection was tightly edited and well-wrought.
Trabelsi finely crafted a belted trench, shown with a twist — with the checked fabric on the outside and the beige waterproof lining the inside. A quirky three-striped sleeveless top of Sherpa material had one band of denser piling. That was worn with more traditional navy suiting trousers. A nylon zip jacket came paired with a minidress in dark denim and an embroidered cotton curtain fabric.
“Our DNA in the future will always be with this approach: ‘NoExpiration.’ [It’s about] pushing our classics to the limit,” Trabelsi said.
