The BLEU DE PANAME SPRING SS17 COLLECTION sees the brand continue to strike a fine balance between the traditions of French workwear and the modernity of Parisian streetwear.
Since Bleu De Paname’s inception back in 2008, founders Thomas Giorgetti and Christophe Lepine have consistently delivered product right out of the top drawer. Known for their extensive personal collections of European militaria, Giorgetti and Lepine are master samplers in the truest sense; finding and then referencing distinct utilitarian details or functional fabrics in manifestly modern executions without ever sacrificing wearability.
The Spring/Summer 2017 collection rarely deviates from this tried and tested formula, providing a considered range with substantial strength in depth. The colour palette takes in seasonal salmons and canary yellows alongside the customary indigo hues. Orientating the collection’s shapes around classic sportswear silhouettes delivers some solid hybrid pieces, including stand out Baseball style collar detailing together with a variety of heavyweight jersey pieces including crew sweats, hoodies and joggers. BDP fan favourites like the cargo pant remain in the much loved olive drab moleskin, while fabrics such as patchwork chambray make a guest appearance on a variety of pieces including outerwear and shirting. In addition, followers of the brand will be aware of Giorgetti’s close affinity with the French graffiti world, so it seems only fitting that the collection gets a welcome injection of vibrancy thanks to a set of graphic tees designed in collaboration with Paris based artist Pablo COTS.
