Cédric Charlier was born in Belgium where he pursued his studies at the school of visual art. After he won the Moet Hennessy Fashion Award in 1998, he worked at the House of Céline in Paris for Michael Kors. He further worked for Jean Paul Knott, Alber Elbaz and Jean Bousquet until he finally decided to establish his own label. He presented his label named after him in 2012 with his very own collection. Of course, Cédric didn’t stay unnoticed as he was immediately overrun by the press and of course customers.

His new collection for spring and summer 2014 for her is a gloomy mixture of dark blue, black and white with a hint of orange and red. A kind of threatening characteristic is provided to the dominant designs with these colors. An Asian feel is given with folded up lapels of jackets and diagonal zip borders, especially by the fusion of jacket and skirt. Since both pieces are defined by a quite loose cut, the suit resembles to a robe of an Asian martial art artist.

The designs of Cédric Charlier not only appear threatening, but also playful due to the use of stripes and their abstract modifications. The collection for spring and summer seems to be extraordinarily gloomy and yet it is marked by an elegant and mysterious character.
