It’s easy to get fatigued with the copious dark and bland collections that release in winter seasons – on the high street and even from major design houses. Occasionally, we see a re-boot when talented creatives get together. The colourful and stimulating collaboration between Colmar Originals and creative design duo Mirko Fontana and Diego Marquez aka Au Jour Le Jour has produced a fun yet iconic Autumn/Winter 2017-2018 capsule collection.
“We started with the logo and its creative use and we drew inspiration from the ultra-modern fit and the design of a Colmar race jacket made for the Italian Alpine Skiing Federation run by Alberto Tomba, without straying from the vintage mountain allure that still sets it apart today” said Mirko Fontana and Diego Marquez of Au Jour Le Jour
The duo was inspired by their memories of Colmar in the 80s and 90s – the magical atmosphere of mountain holidays and flamboyant colour used, which encouraged the brand to open up their archives. We sincerely love this collection – It’s cool, masses of fun and it identifies with the Colmar tradition, completely. Shop HERE.
