Études N°23 - Spring Summer 2024 - Runway

Études completed its Paris-themed trilogy with a Spring Summer 2024 collection drawing inspiration from the iconic rooftops that grace the capital. Entitled CRÉPUSCULE, the collection reimagines urban and architectural codes, blending echoes of the past with a contemporary pulse. This new wardrobe effortlessly merges refined streetwear with functional workwear and sophisticated tailoring, reflecting the hybrid essence of the season. Ascending from the depths of a Parisian garage to emerge beneath the summer sky, the silhouettes walked to an exclusive live mix by the electro DJ, The Hacker. Evoking an urban and neo-romantic ambiance, the Études N°23 collection captures the true spirit of risk-taking, freedom, and the fleeting beauty of twilight.




Duran Lantink - UNZEN version

On Saturday morning, March 4th, Duran Lantink marked his Paris Fashion Week debut with his Springsummerautumnwinter 2023 collection, created in his signature and entirely circular method. As guests filed into the light-filled sky box of sustainable fashion hub’s La Caserne, they were greeted with the scent of burning sage and the soundtrack of a guided meditation, providing a sensorial cleanse to prepare for what followed. The 39 looks, created in a dialogue with stylist Jodie Barnes, utilises existing materials and dead stock in sculptural forms and exciting proportions, transforming the previously used and discarded into the new and evolved. In a process that begins on the computer, Lantink is able to manipulate the shapes and silhouettes of an intended garment before sculpting them in-studio. A traditional trench coat becomes an exaggerated hourglass form; a ribbed knit becomes suddenly sloped and delightfully bulbous. While inherently conceptual, the collection is designed with technical precision for more wearability. Many of the fabrics and fastenings were sourced from army surplus stores; backpack straps adorn hips on low-slung trousers and cinch dresses, disassembled corduroy and khaki pieces are reassembled alongside sharp cuts of metallic vinyl, repurposed from last season’s collection. Sheepskin, previously deemed unusable by a factory due to minor imperfections, was rescued, repaired and reimagined in the form of oversized and texturally indulgent coats and platform boots. Lantink’s visual stream of reinvention prompts viewers to consider what’s available to them and how it can be made new. “I hope to play a role in the healing of the fashion industry, so I wanted to arrive in Paris with positive, clear energy for a fresh start,” says Lantink.
