This is definitely a retro look. Straight from the 60s, a car coat in Italian leather or an ecru hand knitted tank top are a reminder of the brand’s fondness for vintage. The wool and cashmere knits are soft. The aviator jackets and mixed wool overshirts are far from skimpy with their generous, loose fits.
Slightly dropped shoulders give comfort and ease. This retro style comes from a desire to step back into our childhood wardrobes, what we wore and what we saw our elders wear. There is also something dressy about the look. For a moment there we thought formal clothes might have become obsolete, but this season the studio was happy to bring some tailoring back.
For the Sandro woman, things must be well made. Aware of the world around her, she lives firmly in reality. Above all, she wants long lasting, timeless pieces that will adapt to her nomadic spirit. However, that’s not all. She wants a wardrobe that combines the Parisian bourgeois codes of her childhood with dashes of 1970s travel.
The timeless cut of her long dresses will never go out of fashion. She wears beautiful basic shirts, with stripes or patterns, and scarves that could have been passed down to her from her grandmother. However, propriety stops at the hem, where on her feet the Sandro woman prefers a pair of solid boots to posh leather loafers.
