Eighty elegant and sparkling models celebrated French Freedom to the beat of performances by Minuit, The Avener, Dua Lipa, Marina Kaye, and Jacques Dutronc to close with two of his iconic hits: Il est 5 heures, Paris s’éveille, J’aime les filles and Les cactus
Five scenes shown the spotlight on an Etam woman – free in body and mind, sexy, divine, joyful and chic – through a collection that symbolises French glamour.
I AM SEXY
A real ode to a confident, slightly provocative woman, the first section of this live show revealed lingerie pieces with an indefinable charm. Latex and leather combined with sheer lace detailing to reveal the sensuality of this theme.
I AM CHIC
Showcasing the light-heartedness of the twenties, this section presented “French chic”. Lace, feathers and pearls celebrated a liberated and romantic woman. Colours were soft and feminine, ranging from pink to burgundy.
I AM DIVINE
Inspired by the exuberance of Studio 54 and the seventies, a dazzling section in which gold and black gave meaning to the collection, with jewelled lingerie embellished with an abundance of stones, diamonds and lamé. Probably the most couture section. This theme introduced the Divine Calais lace developed exclusively with the company Noyon to celebrate 100 years of Etam know-how.
I AM JOYFUL
Undoubtedly the section that best represented the French way of life, with sailor stripe tops reinterpreted by Etam, lots of the brand’s iconic pieces, along with petticoats and eyelet embroidery, for a funny, sexy woman. A confidently light-hearted feel.
THE SWIMWEAR presented an elegant and charismatic woman. The pieces were graphic and modern with a sophisticated feel.
