French designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac is shaking things up by visiting his colourful, whimsical style on iconic Petit Bateau pieces. This bold, unabashedly joyful collection will be available in Petit Bateau boutiques and online store as of 19 October 2015. Reimagining Petit Bateau's wardrobe and its nautical themes has been a funcruise. The classic raincoat becomes a poncho and its hood a hat. The traditional marinière goes “pop” with shoulder pads in bright patent yellow or red canvas fabric.
Series of colourful portraits of a daydreaming sailor gleefully grace pure cotton baby vests, T-shirts and sweatshirts.
Bold colours – blue, red and yellow – lend the collection both glitz and contrast. This partnership between one of the biggest names in French fashion and the classic brand from Troyes has resulted in an event collection full of French charm.
