Design duo Hugues Fauchard and Rémi Bats are champions of the slow fashion movement, and their collection of artfully crafted basics in high-end tactile fabrics was like a manifesto for taking the time to admire the finer things in life.
Under the moniker “Counting Sheep,” they offered up an array of options in which to cozy up at home alongside a contemporary take on camouflage, in natural tones that would make their wearer invisible in the forest with sharp silhouettes to stand out on the street.
Certain chunky tailored pieces were even crafted from unbleached wool made in Italy from a herd that grazes just behind the weaver’s factory, summing up the brand’s ethos.
The sartorial elements that gave Uniforme its name included gaiter-like details on tailored pants, the subtle chevron weave of Japanese cotton pieces and a technical cotton raincoat with soldered seams for the great outdoors. Their take on denim — a novelty of the season — was made from a cotton-linen blend, giving it a soft aspect and a cool hand.
Tone-on-tone, they also offered up ribbed knit balaclavas, dual-collared sweaters as well as loungewear items like boxer shorts and pajamas that doubled up as understated eveningwear. There was even an oversized tailored apron for the impeccably dressed cook in the house.
