Olympia Le-Tan: Schoolgirl Antics

Paris Fashion Week Day Four

28 Сентября 2014

“We don’t need no education,” the famous Pink Floyd lyric, was written in chalk on the blackboard at the back of the stage, as Olympia LeTan‘s naughty schoolgirls walked the runway. The designer, who started her career with witty handbags mimicking books, has brought her irony to clothes. And Olympia was quick to prove her skills with a reinvention of the pencil skirt. The slender style was printed with — pencils.

“My school had no uniforms, so my main inspiration was St Trinian’s,” said the designer, referring to the fictional girls boarding school that is a world away from Harry Potter.

Olympia used collegiate stripes, humorous prints, buttons and truncated neckties to give a faux innocence to girly clothes. The well-cut dresses and oversized blazers proved how chic French girls would look if their schools demanded uniforms.

Bags were, of course, witty, from pencil cases to books and globes – which may have been from a geography lesson or a signal that the Le-Tan brand is going global.
