A trip to Japan inspired Alithia for this collection.  A summery dream composed of fifty looks, set within the lush greenhouses of the Jardin des Plantes, where austere Japanese culture meets all desires of fluidity. A symphony of tropical colored dresses, where the work of the Maison’s atelier adorns the PAULE KA woman: a ‘modern couture’ spirit, that reveals a constant desire for sophistication.

A walk through the heart of a Japanese fantasy comes to life in a crescendo of colour. A dream of textures and fabrics, where the strictest of lines juxtapose the most romantic shapes. This journey starts with a tribute: when Serge Cajfinger created Paule Ka almost 30 years ago, his very first outfits were inspired by masculine tailoring, including a blazer from which he removed the shoulder pads, as a reaction to the overly broad fashion of the 1980s. This inspiration provided the starting point for a new exercise in style. In Alithia’s hands, suiting is transformed as the white gabardine of a classic jacket is reinterpreted into long draped dresses and soft, tailored separates, structured with obi inspired belts.  The entire collection feature a play on stripes, magical couture flowers, and an incredible line of accessories.
