Even after four years running Deer&Doe, I would be lying if I told you I don’t have butterflies in my stomach before releasing a new collection… So I’m holding my breath to present the result of the past 6 months of work: let me introduce Zéphyr, Mélilot, and Lupin!
Zéphyr is a knit skater dress with a little extra something: princess seams make it both comfortable and flattering, with a perfect fit! Zéphyr is offered in three different variations: version A has an urban and sportswear feel with its crew neck, version B is sexy with its plunging V neckline, and version C is a crop top and skirt combo. With such versatility, Zéphyr is the perfect wardrobe-builder for this summer!
One thing is for sure, button-down shirts are going to be everywhere this spring! They are all-over the stores at the moment, and we are offering you a feminine and casual interpretation of this timeless piece with Mélilot! The Mélilot shirt is subtly cinched at the waist and has a very soft look, from its curved hem to its rounded collar and sleeve cuffs. It exists in two variations: version A is more classic, with long sleeves, drop shoulders, a hidden button-band, and a rounded collar. Version B is more casual, with cuffed short sleeves, a mandarin collar, and two chest pockets.
Many of you were dreaming of a spring jacket. We took up the challenge with Lupin, an hybrid between Letterman and double-breasted motorcycle jackets. Lupin is entirely lined and was designed to be worn with high-waisted dresses and skirts, but will also work with jeans and sneakers 😉 . Rock in leather or suede, preppy in flannel, or urban with color-blocked sleeves, it is a versatile pattern that will definitely draw some attention!
To celebrate the release of our new patterns, we decided to offer a limited edition spring-summer 2016 collection bundle with Zéphyr, Mélilot and Lupin! This bundle is available at the discounted prince of 38.5 euros (instead of 42 euros) for the first 300 orders 😉
We hope that you like this new collection! We also wanted to thank Emilie Le Papillon who wears these new garments wonderfully on the presentation pictures, and whose huge smile is brightening the whole shop today! After your feedback on the Fall-Winter 2015 collection saying that a lot of you had trouble identifying with our model Elisa, we decided to showcase our patterns on two different and complementary silhouettes, and we hope that this is helping you imagine your own versions of the patterns!
