In our inbox this week, were found three intriguing news.
First is a neat lookbook from the menswear brand Billtornade, exploring for next FW15 a minimal and raw vibe much along the lines of cult brand A.P.C. – which is why it caught the eye of our loyal Petit New Standard user Vu Quan.
Second is a reminder that french cinematographer Valérie Donzelli is dropping a sulfur bomb at Cannes Festival this year. The film is called Marguerite & Julien, and tells the gripping and peculiar story of a brother and a sister loving each other “too much” and confronted by society, and deciding to run away. We love french cinema when it tackles borderline stories like this, guessing one’s smart enough to be his or her own moral judge.
Last but not least, we learn of an interesting collaboration that one could call the fashion Avengers of Normandy. French-made knitwear specialist Armor Lux teamed up with trends bureau Nelly Rodi (the S.H.I.E.L.D of fashion industry?), long-time lone gunwoman agnès b., and the city of Deauville to present a special collection referencing the city’s particular lifestyle.
