FALL/ WINTER 2005/2006

Dusty blue and pink create Mountain Canada’s vintage atmosphere and combine with brown, mottled grey and optical white for a real high-altitude effect. She wears padded jackets, raw-edged sweatshirts, T-shirts with placed prints, fleece skirts and light corduroy trousers - all skimpily cut. His styles are like a breath of mountain air and feature raw-edged rustic fabrics, corduroys, knitwear with a handmade look and hand embroidery.
The ActiveCollege theme is an ideal expression of sport and casual wear. Sweatshirts are worn with denim, pullovers styled like chunky sweaters, duffel coats have knitted details, fleece trousers and skirts have a denim look. Basic materials and techniques are combined with new solutions: knitted wool bonded with cotton jersey; cotton with satin inlays; nylon with cotton. Lurex details are seen in the very feminine knitted tops and the prints on his styles are Lurex-coated. Milky white and black team up with primary yellow or green, or with fluorescent turquoise, fuchsia, orange or acid green.
Both themes include many articles to mix and match according to style or colour for constantly new effects created by personal imagination and the mood of the moment.Matching accessories and footwear complete the Playlife total look.
