NEW VIBRATIONS AT JOURDAN
She’s playful and always full of innovative ideas, a subtle mix of elegance and sensuality, she knows how to show her style and personality. She’s the one that wears the trousers. You’ll find her bold, assertive, fashionable style in spring-summer 2018.
Charles Jourdan pulls out all the stops and excites and dazzles us with the season’s exquisite forms and colours. With a flavour of summer, she shows her nonchalant beauty, like a flower coming back to life in the first rays of spring sunshine. Red, green, yellow, delicate fabric flowers and delightful polished flowers. This collection is inspired by these bright, glossy colours. Leather and metal stiletto heels, square micro-heels or mules with satin flowers, she knows how to choose what she needs to reach the top step of the podium.
And if fashion was again governed by art? Named six months ago at the head of the house Stephane Kélian, the Italian designer Rubens Bressanin concretizes this sweet dream, summoning the figures of Piet Mondrian, Lucio Fontana or Alexander Calder to create his spring-summer 2018 collection. Available on the e-shop, this new collection will be the subject of an exclusive pop-up store at Printemps Haussmann, from 22 January 2018.
In 2018, the 574 made its great return, with a slightly more refined shape.
Back come the original colours, special editions & collaborations: the year will be focused on this model, which has survived the fashions and eras without ever becoming outdated.
The Royer Group sponsors the Piola project. The brand comes from the meeting of a creative project and a development project in Peru. It offers elegant sneakers that draw on the best know-how in the world but they are mainly products that participate in the development of those who produce it, in partnership with WWF and USAID.
The new Kickers store concept was born out of a desire to “stage” the collections in an environment that symbolises the different opportunities for wearing shoes today: casual, urban and sportswear.
An architectural commitment to improving the customer experience.
The shop interior is enlivened by murals dedicated to the different segments of the Collection, with an area given over particularly to the brand’s iconic models.
The materials are natural and modern, illustrating Kickers’ originality and creativity: Fibralith, wood and metal.
Faithful to its values, the new store concept reflects the Kickers sense of optimism, freedom, authenticity and complicity.
The group incorporates the brand HUNGARIA. Back on the front of the stage since 2016, HUNGARIA aims to represent French elegance in the world of sport. By developing chic and bold products, combining quality and comfort, HUNGARIA aims to be the reference of the French touch on and off the playgrounds. HUNGARIA thus reinforces the sportstyle development within the group alongside the Umbro and New Balance licenses.
