Homegrown designers Jérémie Égry, Aurélien Arbet, and José Lamali — aka Études — looked to America for their SS19 collection, shown at Paris Fashion Week. The designers reworked classic icons of Americana, but with their own contemporary, wardrobe-friendly twists. The trio reworked bandana prints, cowboy boots, fringed jackets and the all-American Starter jacket in their own unfussy, uncluttered style.

Highlight of the collection came via a link-up with American painter Henry Taylor, whose work was blasted over two billowing silk shirts. The brand’s baggy, ultra-casual trousers also looked like they’d score high with retailers, as did the off-white denim two pieces. Flame-print tops and mega-oversized sports jerseys reminded us that these days, knowing winks at items once considered bad taste is still en vogue.

America has always been a rich source of inspiration for the fashion industry, but recent seasons have seen designers look to the Stars-and-Stripes with increased frequency, and it’s interesting to see a Parisian label offer their own take on the country and its vast cultural impact.
