Inspired by the incomparable, effortless glamour and honeyed light of the south of France, as epitomised by the hotel La Colombe d’Or, Aje’s Spring 22 ‘Provenance’ collection is an ode to a joie de vivre from a rich cultural moment in time.
Beloved by some of the mid-2oth century’s most revered artists, who sought its splendour to reinterpret form and colour; the refined and eclectic inn was a recurring reference for Aje Co-founders Edwina Forest and Adrian Norris while designing for Spring 22.
Driven to explore this merging of worlds; the ‘bon vivance’ of La Colombe d’Or and why certain places have a golden energy that draws creatives to them, the result is a collection that embodies the Aje DNA with beautifully evolved techniques, rendered in a warm palette reminiscent of languid afternoons under the Provençal sun.
Below, speaking to the vision behind the collection, Aje Creative Director Edwina Forest reveals the design philosophies underpinning the styles and silhouettes that define the season.
