Gentlewoman style: École de Curiosités

Ecole de curiosites white matisse jacket

New brand alert! Weepingly expensive but how beautiful. I discovered École de Curiosités via the Tiina The Store e-newsletter. It’s a Franco-Japanese brand by designer Hans Ito, produced in France from delicious-sounding new and vintage fabrics like ‘typewriter cotton’. Very much in the Egg-meets-Sofie-D’Hoore mould, it’s all roomy dresses,  boyish shirts and relaxed linen tailoring.

I would rather spend £1000 on a dress from École de Curiosités than on a logo-tastic Raf-wannabe brand (not mentioning any names). But until I win the lottery, I can only pray for sample sales, a diffusion line or perhaps some sort of Uniqlo collab in the future. Sigh.
