“The brand, CALLA, is based on the idea of relaxed luxury, so it was important to me to propose jeans to my client. I asked April 77 to work with me because they are just honestly my favourite denim brand! I wear them
all the time. For this collaboration, we discussed mixing our two worlds
together into a theme called ‘Romantic Rights’ – a vision that is both romantic and very rock and roll. For the print designs, I imagined a girl, in
love, at a summer music festival and how she feels. I tried to communicate the heat, the nature and the music in abstract patterns.” Calla Haynes.

This video features a preview of the Spring/Summer collection of the French brand Moonchild. As we’ve seen in their last winter collection, the brand remains inspired by native American emblems, and stretches into psychedelic art embodied by Alejandro Jodorowsky’s esoteric imagery and Aldous Huxley‘s mystical books.

If you think about the softer and most luxurious fabrics in existence, it is very probable that you end up thinking about cashmere. While many brands sell this fabric, the first one that comes to mind may very well be the french label Eric Bompard. I absolutely adore their V neck pullovers, and in their latest collection I found some pieces that I would definitely add to my wardrobe.
What, for Monsieur Bompard, began with a trip to the Gobi Desert in the early 80’s with the subsequent discovery of the Capra Hisca (a small goat that lives and thrives in extreme climatic variations, giving it its long soft hair) ended up becoming a leading brand. The key: to create high quality garments with cashmere as its main ingredient.
For this autumn campaign, they chose to feature the always beautiful and very sexy Monica Bellucci as their brand ambassador. A perfect match I would say taking into consideration how Bellucci embodies the idea of luxury, beauty and sensuality.
“She is the ultimate muse – multi-talented and independent as well as beautiful – and perfectly represents our luxury brand.” says Eric Bompard.
The campaign was shot in Argentina, on the colorful streets of Buenos Aires but also stretching out into the immensity of the glaciers and deserts of the wild and beautiful Argentinean south.
The collection includes a selection of accessories. Don’t miss out on the printed large scarfs, like the one with the “Kilimanjaro” print. I will definitely try the ribbed mittens (75€ ).
We all know that cashmere is not the cheapest option. But it is, in fact, the most durable and environmentally friendly for the winter, having the potential to become an investment that will accompany you for years. For stockists, check out their website or buy them online.✿
