Gulf Weekly Heartbeats and happiness

Love is in the air and it seems to have rubbed off on Weill’s creative director Mathilde Castello Branco as the Parisian fashion houses a romantic and flirty new line celebrates the month of amour.

Weill’s spring summer 2019 tells the story of a woman’s summer of love being footloose and fancy-free as she roams France travelling from Paris to Deavuille in heart-covered tops, scarves and dresses.

Mathilde has illustrated little red hearts by hand on T-shirts and vest tops as well as little tweed jackets that are as soft as knitwear. The beating hearts are also embroidered onto cotton and silk Prince of Wales checked suits, as patches on jeans and are in harmony with stripes.

Inspired by long walks on the beach, summer by the sea and sun-kissed holidays; Mathilde also created a fruity frock featuring lemons, strawberries, pineapples and cherries. She combined it as well with deckchair stripes, parasol patterns and more sporty designs which she believes is the perfect combo of fun and chic.

For the more monochromatic female, there are a few stylishly chic black and white looks to mix and match. Other designs are enhanced with a sprinkling of polka dots and stripes, mini hearts and star-studded touches. This is a wardrobe of dresses, pleated skirts, suits, knits and tweed.

Accessories bring a new vibe to classic designs, creating a whole new wardrobe filled with style and imagination. Of course, it’s also all in the details and a waistband tied with a grosgrain ribbon, a button with a sapphire, an emerald or pearl jewel, a hand-embroidered brooch, a fruit or a film clapperboard, a rock star chain, dashes of diamanté or a bow can make all the difference in an outfit.
