Inspired by the film‘Kirikou et la Sociere’ and the earlier safari landscape paintings of dreamlike painter Henri Rousseau, Christian L’enfant Roi Fall/Winter 2013 collection defies modern standards and seeks for bespoke silhouettes, exempted from all innocence. The quality handpicked fabrics allow its liberated wearers to interact without compromise, freed from all pivotal restraints, whilst coolly maintaining full utilitarian sartorial control.
