French House Paule Ka Is All About The ’60s For Its AW20 Collection

The ’60s are in and have always been French design house Paule Ka’s favorite decade. And it’s no secret that celebrities with a timeless look, such as Lebanese-British barrister, Amal Clooney, are fans of the brand. From the iconic mini skirt, to checks and punk spirit, from top-stitched frock coats to tweed, the collection also summons up London and its timeless street style. The brand’s Creative Director Máxime Simoens has created a collection that pops with bright colors, from pink to purple to deep red to polka dots. Wool and cashmere jumpers, as well as gingham enlivens the skirts.

With London’s Savile Row as the backdrop, the AW20 collection is where masculine met feminine. Narrow stripes of Prince of Wales and soft flannel offered edge, while floral prints brought forth the femininity of the pieces. And then, Máxime brings in the ’60s with long blazers combined with mini skirts, and sweaters paired with sock-knit, V-neck-shaped dresses. On London’s Carnaby Street and in SoHo, he used colors like amethyst, carnelian and ocher. He also brought in Scottish patterns, which appeared on blouses and easy-to-wear shirt dresses. Wide legged pants with huge scarves reminded us of Berwick Street.

Bravo to Máxime for creating a collection that’s at once versatile and vivacious.
