Busnel are well known for their outerwear, and until this day, the collections are still manufactured in the same factory in Dinan, France, where the brand originally started in 1920. Inspired by active living (which is a reoccurring theme for the brand), SS17’s collection has been split into 4 sections – Metropole, Skipper, Safari and Croce.
‘Metropole’ is full of Busnel’s classics; knits, silk blouses and gold ‘B’ buttons, in sand, pink, white and black. Think of this segment as pieces that can be worn everyday, anywhere and by anyone. ‘Skipper’ brings a hint of marine activity, with breton stripes and the classic skipper jacket with anchor buttons, teamed with crisp white shirts and knit skirts.
‘Safari’ adds an urban and luxury injection, playing with flowing silk trousers and shirts, short jackets and simple jumpers in deep khaki and cream with a dash of leopard print. To round off the collection, ‘Croce’ brings a soft, romantic touch, with nuances of light beige to dusty pink, in cashmere, wool and cotton. There are capes, delicate frills and little cardigans, all perfect for a summer of feminine ease and prettiness. Busnel knows what works, and what their customers want, and this collection stays true to their heritage and Louise Falkenberg’s rejuvenation of the brand.
