City Of Light
Embracing the spirit of Paris, famously known as the City of Light since King Louis XIV's 1667 decree to combat crime with extensive street lamps, this collection offers brilliant inspiration. Most people think the nickname comes from the fact that the city counts 296 illuminated attractions, including the Eiffel Tower with its 20,000 bulbs. The Carlisle take on this luminous legacy is that the spring line lights the way to dazzling chic, with French tweed dresses that radiate optimism being just one of many examples. Oversized water lily prints channel the genius of Monet, the town’s most famous Impressionist. The intricate tile prints on silk satin charmeuse pay homage to the luxurious tiles adorning bistros along the Left Bank of the Seine. Fantastic couture craftsmanship exalts the human form with uncommon details, from curvy shaping panels to opulent knit stitches, elevating the aesthetic appeal. Reflecting the suave ethos of French culture, the collection features a refined palette that includes delicate shades of doeskin beige and pastel green ash, soft shades totally in sync with the season. The blend of exquisite design and nuanced hues embodies the essence of Parisian charm.
Woman On The Bridge
The Woman on the Bridge spring line is a vibrant tribute to the daring spirit of Parisian cinema. The edgy movie by the same name features Vanessa Paradis (wife 2 of Johnny Depp), rescued on the Passerelle Debilly bridge near the Eiffel Tower by her new boyfriend who has a circus act. She joins the act, bringing the couple much luck and fortune. They tailor their look and new lives together with a colorful recklessness. A jubilant fusion of retro charm and contemporary audacity, the collection unveils a tapestry of fashion-forward looks that flamboyantly defy convention with the ingratiating verve of a stage performance. Electric hues of celandine, bittersweet, and camellia interlace with monochromatic doeskin, generating a visual symphony that encapsulates the essence of creativity. Structured silhouettes, reminiscent of 1960s Parisian chic, intertwine with asymmetrical cuts and bold drapery, creating a riveting juxtaposition of vintage elegance and modern eccentricity. Quirky geometric patterns and acid florals embellish the fabrics, infusing the garments with a whimsical allure and playful rebellion. The collection's avant-garde scarves amplify the allure of nonconformity. Woman on the Bridge pulsates with a dynamic energy, summed up perfectly by the Palais Royal dress, crafted in a feminine floral lace. Its intense red shade evokes the life-and-death urgency of self-expression.
