LaurenceAirline’s Spring/Summer 2014 menswear collection is inspired by the sunny pastels of Miami’s glamorous Art Deco District, mixed with Op Art and 60’s fashion references.

The label LAURENCEAIRLINE was founded in 2010 by creative director Laurence Chauvin-Buthaud. LAURENCEAIRLINE is a menswear label and conscious project based between Abidjan and Paris. The brand brings together a path between cultures drawing contemporary timeless basic silhouettes with deep African roots. Re-imagining the African continent’s cultural inheritance in a way that fashion and ethnic cultures can successfully collaborate to create possibilities for the future is the driving force behind LaurenceAirline. The entire line is made in accordance with conscious and sustainable manufacturing practices in LaurenceAirline’s workshop in Ivory Coast, where local people are trained to produce high quality garments following international standard. Valuing bold aesthetics and sustainable development, the label merges creativity coming from Africa with the sophisticated standards of modern societal way of life. In that frame, worldwide sold LaurenceAirline’s collections help build Africa’s modern reality into the international fashion scene.
