We introduce the new collection of Christopher Waller, named “A Shot Across the Bows”. The London based designer, active with his eponymous brand since 2010, is one of the most promising new names on the British scene. The inspiration for the spring/summer 2012 comes from the glamour of the Côte d’Azur, favorite summer destination of celebrities in the late 80’s and early 90’s. An “effortless sophistication”, a chic but casual style, never too studied, represented perfectly by a woman who is a living style icon: Charlotte Casiraghi. The silhouettes are minimal, with geometric details and a range of sober colors, lit only by a few hints of blue. An elegant woman, who doesn’t need to draw the attention with the eccentricity of her clothes.
