The Études Spring Summer 2023 collection was presented in a renovated part of the 19th arrondissement, with models walking on the rails, this first post pandemic show for Études takes its roots in a lesser-known Paris, far from clichés, between train tracks and greenery. Inspired by the abandoned industrial heritage while staying true to its stylistic imprint, the Études wardrobe combines workwear’s functionality and patina with formal garments of meticulous detail. Carpenter’s trousers and classic shirts, jumpsuits and suits, multi-pocket work jackets and trench coats: the collection fuses the archetypes of both worlds to create the brand’s signature relaxed, contemporary silhouette. The utilitarian wardrobe is embodied by raw materials such as denim and cotton canvas as well as diamond-shaped logos. The color palette spans from redwood to pale green and brown to grey-beige, while existing volumes reinforce Études’ signature take on French tailoring with subtle shapes: an Italian light wool flannel coat with airy lightness, trousers with detailed darts and a checked suit jacket. The collection includes a collaboration with the French painter Jean-Baptiste Bernadet. Several pieces, including a suit jacket with raw edges patches and a jumpsuit with sophisticated details are inspired by two of his quasi-impressionist paintings.
