The Yves Salomon women’s summer 2022 ready-to-wear collection is inspired by the New York woman living in the 70s and is aimed at those who want timeless and sophisticated total looks.
The material honored in this wardrobe is leather, double-sided, soft touch it is unlined which allows to feel the flexibility and lightness of the skin in summer. The brand which was initially reserved for fur, founded in 1920 by the Russian Gregory Salomon, began to diversify its skins and work leather in 1960 thanks to Boris Salomon, his son. In 1980, the grandson, Yves Salomon, launched the brand that bears his name and immediately became a leading brand of the time by its modernity and style. For this collection, Yves Salomon now working with his son Thomas, and perpetuating the creative line of the brand, composed silhouettes for the city girl of today, regardless of her age, and who will dress with Yves Salomon pieces throughout the day.
The leather pieces like the culotte skirt, the elastic waist pants in jogging or high waist versions, or the trench coat in Sweden, have leather finishes, the buttons are covered in the same leather or in signed horn and edge-dyed frank edges like on bags. They can be combined with knitwear, chubby or Milano, denser, and an innovation of the brand that has developed a new material more stretchy with a pleated look that highlights the body of the woman. These leathers can also be worn with pieces contrasting the skin, like a blouse in washed silk, a silk that has a softer touch and a more fluid appearance. Leather details can be found on cotton pieces, like the safari jacket (that you can see on the black and white image) with leather taps and snaps or this dress with a leather ladder day inlay.
