Apolina’s SS20 collection was inspired by summer days spent in the south of France last year. Trawling French flea markets, we admired the simple beauty of antique nightgowns, rails of stiff white cotton and delicate broderie anglaise trims. The simple, time-softened fabrics of vintage table linens found at brocantes inspired our prints and woven textiles.These treasures interlaced with memories of childhood holidays spent onFrench farms, the warm, faded grandeur of holiday homes with sun-faded paints on crumbling plaster, colorful art on the walls, and worn, patterned tiles. With a casual summer holiday mood, where refreshing sorbet colours mix with our usual natural palette, the collection was created to wear on spring adventures and slow summer picnics by the river.
