Teddy boys, Sapeurs and Coco Chanel

Browsing the resort collections, we've fallen in love with Edun's new aesthetic.

On our minds are the resort collections and one of the standouts for the season, Edun. For 2016 the luxury artisan brand took another small step away from their monochrome comfort zone with louder leopard-printed pieces and all-checked/all-bright pink looks. The collection is said to be inspired by “personal style” – more specifically those of the teddy boys of London, the “Sapeurs” (or dandies) of sub-Saharan Africa, and Coco Chanel in the 1920s – actors that according to Creative Director Danielle Sherman were embraced for their great “influence of a movement”. We welcome this braver aesthetic and were impressed by Sherman’s neat aligning of these rather diverse style-historic references. See the collection in full here.
