Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Pairs With Petit Bateau
Petit Bateau is doing a capsule collection avec Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, comprised of a dozen items for kids and adults. The punchy, brightly-hued pieces involve plenty of stripes, which is a signature for both brands. There’s also a zippy yellow poncho with clear paneled detailing (we could really use that piece to combat today’s wet, blustery weather…). Plus, expect a few Ts with cheery sketches: they were done by de Castelbajac and inspired by Balthazar, the designer’s seven-year-old grandson, who modeled for the accompanying lookbook as well, according to WWD.
The collection will debut on October 12 at Petit Bateau’s Champs-Élysées location and on the brand’s site, and will subsequently hit the shelves at other locations one week later.
