Just landed here in store is the latest collection from Lyon based label, Arpenteur. Adding contemporary twists to classic French clothing, their latest collection is full of summer weight fabrics and bold patterns, making it ideal for the coming months. With all production taking place in France, there is an undeniable quality to Arpenteur’s clothing that is completely in fitting with the label’s workwear roots.
With the sun out, we thought it a prime opportunity to get out the office and join the crowds amongst the penny arcades, candy floss and dodgems of Brighton’s infamous Palace Pier.
A highlight for us was the Ete SS Shirt, a lightweight number that has been based around a pop-over style with short placket detailing and open chest pocket. The airy cotton construction has been paired with an intricate blue check pattern for an easy-wearing, laid back look. It is also a versatile garment that can be easily smartened up with the addition of an Arpenteur mainstay, the Villefrance Jacket.
Another stand out item is the Brehat Shirt, a take on the iconic Breton stripe. Coming in a range of colourways, the orange and navy version caught our eye for its bold use of colour. Heavy cotton construction has been paired with a looser fit and three quarter length arms for a relaxed feel that is ideal for the rising temperatures.
