BRAND ALERT: SAINTPAUL
AW 16/17 COLLECTION
SaintPaul is a rapidly expanding contemporary brand. It stands out for its originality and its quality. Exclusive prints and jacquards are all drawn by hand. Designs are placed to give out exactly the pattern imagined by the designer. This attention to quality is applied to all items designed by SaintPaul: bespoke jackets, exclusive pants, swimwear, embroidered sweatshirts and t-shirts, and inspirational shirts.
By bringing together superior techniques and designs, SaintPaul revisits the experience and knowledge of traditional luxury
For AW 16/17 SaintPaul gets inspiration from exotic art collections as well as by a number of recent exhibits in Paris and London: Fondation Cartier’s “Beauté Congo” exhibit in Paris, V&A’s “Fabric of India”; The London “Liberty” show.
From African masks to ancient Tribal art, from Street art and tags to traditional exotic animal prints, from ancient Liberty prints to modern tattoos and abstracts, SaintPaul relishes the adventure provided by these visits and recombines them in his personal universe.
