We’re always on the look out for basics that allude to a certain Parisienne nonchalance, and Current/Elliott’s Serge Azria certainly bottled the brief when he teamed up with  French actress and songwriter Charlotte Gainsbourg to create a capsule collection for A/W 2014.
The collection takes its cue from vintage-inspired fabrications and Gainsbourg’s love of structured designer clothing (she is Nicolas Ghesquière’s muse after all), including raw indigo denim, structured blazers, corduroy outerwear, tailored wool suiting, classic shirting and layering knits and tees . “For me, denim has always been a fabric that can take on the personality of the person who wears it,” Gainsbourg explains.
“We both wanted to create something special, not a large line; the best shirt, the best jean, the best jacket,” adds Azria of the pair’s updated classics.
