Always influenced by literature, Louis Gabriel Nouchi presents this season “UNAUTHORIZED1 ”. Without naming the novel, Louis Gabriel delivers his definition of sensuality, inspired by one of the most famous French authors, who retraces in her work with autobiographical features, her childhood and her adolescence in French Indochina.
In a warm and humid atmosphere, the silhouettes intermingle, brush against each other and reveal the forbidden love story between a young girl and a rich Chinese lover.
This collection marks the advent of homewear; indoor bathrobes, striped pajamas, satin lingerie. The notion of indoor clothing to be worn outside is taken to its peak. It symbolizes the fluidity of genres, while retaining the tailor-made construction codes and the brand’s own elegance.
LGN favors natural materials on all silhouettes such as linen, used for several seasons, Cupro, organic cotton. For this new collection, he works with natural coffee, beech and hazelnutbased dyes to create a range of softness.
A new pattern inspired by marbled papers adorns iconic pieces, a nod to the interiors of old books. This pattern is available in different techniques – Digital printing on viscose, knitted jacquard for a mat and shiny tone-on-tone pattern, burned out on a jersey base for transparency, or lasered on denim.
• LGN declines the paperclip in a logo, a functional accessory. The latter retains its primary function of attachment proper in the middle of the edition and is available as a belt buckle, accessories metalwork, brooch, key ring…
• After lingerie, LGN unveils a swimwear capsule, developed in recycled nylon.
Always animated by discussion and meetings, Louis Gabriel Nouchi also presents two new collaborations. With Sarah Levy, the designer imagines solar and marbled visors. It is with Philéo Paris that he imagines the entire shoe collection.
