With his carefully cut creations and ultra-fitted lines, the Belgian designer Cédric Charlier takes elegance to a new level, blending refinement with boldness, androgyny and personality. For his range of women's Ready-to-Wear clothing, he's gone straight to the men's wardrobe, introducing high-waist wide trousers worn with shirts buttoned up to the chin. Born in Belgium, Cédric Charlier is a gifted young artist who started painting at the age of five and then took classes at the Académie des Beaux-Arts, aged just ten years old. Ahead of his time, he won the Moët Hennessy fashion prize in 1998, while still being at École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Visuels de la Cambre. The award opened the doors to his first major internship. He joined Celine fashion house, directed at that time by Michael Kors. He then went to the Jean Paul Knott studio before signing with Lanvin two years later. After working alongside Alber Elbaz, he was appointed as Creative Director for Cacharel, bringing a breath of fresh air with him. He launched his eponymous label in 2012, renowned for its flattering cuts and perfect tailoring. For the Spring-Summer 2020 collection, Cédric Charlier is heading for the Wild West. Carefully avoiding the trap of falling into literal interpretations of cowboy trends, the designer paints the picture of a modern adventurer, skilfully teaming fabrics such as denim with satin and leather with broderie anglaise. Navy blue, ochre and black shades set the scene for a rugged landscape, accented by several Western-inspired features. Saddle-shaped arabesque detailing adorns long-fringe jackets and skirts, while the shirts feature bandana motifs. He also adds poetic touches of ballpoint pen-drawn designs, inspired by the work of the artist Jan Fabre.> View more
