Press Releases and Statements

A mix of jungle darkness, ‘Nineties minimalism references and the sway of ethno urban fringes.

Sisley mixes black, grey, powder pink and dusty shades for this unconventional SS 2015 Capsule Collection. Decisive lines and oversized volumes for knits with a textured effect and dark, glossy feathers, decorate accessories while leaves, branches and palms are revisited in a techno minimal version.

Sisley girls have a real obsession for fringes this season. Cascades of black faux leather fringes decorate tops, jacket cuffs, Charleston-punk effect mini-skirts and stiletto heel ankle boots. Jungle warrior fringes, somewhere between the West, the dark mix is typically unexpected of Sisley style with patterned, refined fabrics such as jacquard.

The aesthetic is punk chic. With shiny leather fringes on one hand and pieces with almost ‘Fifties elegance on the other. Black jacquard cropped jackets with mandarin collar and flared sleeves, A-line skirts with an almost three-dimensional texture and close-fitting powder-pink trousers that are perfect with the open toe ankle boot.  In keeping with this sexy and unconventional line, the must have for evenings is the little black dress with its essential lines, draped-effect bodice and V-neck back embellished with gold chains – sexiness with a dark touch. Adding the finishing touches to these looks is the bag thickly covered with glossy black feathers, super luxury and dark.

This she-warrior sexiness is also combined with references to current trend, ‘Nineties minimalism. Women are again in love with deconstructed shapes and oversize volumes, so Sisley has designed soft dresses and shirts shaded with ink black and plum nuances. Geometric shapes as clean and symbolic as a Rothko canvas, to wear in town or on vacation, for a summer where conventionality is banned.

MEN

Dark, minimal tropical energy can also be found in the men’s looks designed by Sisley for SS 2015 – the clean-cut lines of jackets and trousers are given an eccentric touch with very particular prints and fabric textures.

Both the single breasted jackets and shirts with a mini collar have a strong ‘Nineties feel, and feature a jungle-effect pattern of ethno-gothic foliage in shades of black, grey, red and blue.  The same goes for the round neck t-shirts decorated with minimal tech stylised ferns and leaves prints, to mix with leather biker jackets or the eternal spring trench with its sophisticated, sporty allure.

Sisley also focuses on knitwear for men – the 3-D mesh effect on the bomber-style knitted jacket looks almost like neoprene. To be found only at Sisley!
