Under the unblinking sun of a tropical summer, strong colors show their mettle. For his second mens' collection, Hugo Matha reinfoces his signature by introducing the Léandre backpack, a timeless contemporary classic and widens his materials palette of ennobled natural materials highlighted by superior craftsmanship.
Playing on the codes of a season of freedom, this Spring/Summer 2017 collection continues to explore the codes and mores of the masculine universe for a triumph that requires no violence. Leather caning and straw embroideries evoke the post-expressionist naiveté of Douanier Rousseau, while his sun-lit reinforces the charm of pure lines and elementary shapes. His naturalist color palette opposes rich leafy green, blue and tawny hues to the stark solidity of white stone.
More than ever, the duality between his signature telluric materials - slate, stone and wood - and the pliant suppleness of leather and straw paint the portrait of a contemporary man timelessly at ease.
