Les Copains creative director Stefania Bandiera looked to the east for inspiration for the S/S16 RTW collection. She envisioned “a modern Madame Butterfly, a contemporary geisha, an educated traveler, an art lover.” And as a lover of cherry blossoms and east Asian art, I completely fell for this collection.

Thin obi-style tied belts cinched waistlines over breezy knit and jacquard trousers and midi skirts in black, white, coral, or prints of cherry blossom and camellias. Black banded sandals stretched all the way up to the knees, a creative spin off from the original gladiator sandal.
