Julien David approached his pre-fall collection with one strong conviction: “I really wanted to use color for winter but in a cool way — not too pop or too young,” he said. He infused his palette with a vintage touch, working “odd” shades and unexpected combinations. “It’s the way color was used in the Sixties and Seventies,” David said.

 

The result: retro-futuristic. For example, a green neck tie blouse in a robot print was paired with boyish trousers in an unusual shade of washed out red, a black grommet belt and neon green clunky loafers. To keep things from skewing too retro, David was careful to modernize, showing Coco-esque jackets with metal buttons, and coats in old school couture silhouettes in futuristic metallic patchwork. None of it could be found at the local thrift store.
