The Manuel Canovas 2016 collection transports us to India on a journey along the Coromandel Coast, amidst the seventeenth century vestiges of colonial Pondicherry, surrounded by scents of musk and garlands of frangipani flowers... In a harmony of Canovas colours, our fabrics evoke the ornamental patterns drawn in chalk on the pavements of the French district of thisformer colony.
In bright, fresh hues, this collection features broad ikat prints, relief medallions revisited, traceries of symmetrical embroidered ribbons, stripe weaves replicating the decorative borders of saris, paisley prints magnified ad infinitum, stylisedjasmine and banyans flowers... the ethnic inspirations of a far-off land are transposed onto original materials available in typical Canovas shades, giving them a more modern style and remaining faithful to French taste.”
