La Petite Caravane launches exclusive capsule collection for Moda Operandi


LaPetiteCaravane x ModaOperandi

La Petite Caravane is thrilled to announce the launch of an exclusive capsule collection for Moda Operandi available from now until August 31.

Moda Operandi is the New York-based online luxury retailer that allows you to access collections from top designers direct from runway but also from emerging designers.

Co-founded by Vogue contributing editor Lauren Santo Domingo, Moda Operandi was most recently the sponsor of this year’s Met gala and exhibition “PUNK: From Chaos to Couture”.

We developed our “Collection Transatlantique” in collaboration with Indre Rockefeller, Moda Operandi’s Director of Ready-to-Wear, who has been a great supporter of emerging designers and La Petite Caravane.

Our “Collection Transatlantique” is inspired by the golden-era of steamship travel in the 1960s.

Steamer trunks found in a family attic and tales of transatlantic travel inspired a collection that recalls an era when pace of travel encouraged elegance.

I imagined the exciting adventures for children aboard the legendary paquebot Le France, which sailed between Le Havre and New York in the golden era of transatlantic luxury travels of the late 1960s: From playing hide-and-seek between cabins, to chasing seagulls on the promenade deck or playing cards in the palm court. Or perhaps even an encounter with the wildcat Salvador Dali’s brought aboard the maiden voyage of Le France.

Shapes draw on 1960s-style silhouettes, and include, for girls, a button down shirt dress with box-pleated skirt; A-line dresses with box pleats; a sleeveless dress with flat pointed collar; a three quarter jupe-culotte; a sleeveless ruffled peplum top with a back bow; a sleeveless flat pointed collar blouse; an embroidered gathered skirts and a detailed pleated skirt. Textures and colors are as varied as the richness of adventures onboard. They include paisley prints to Swiss dots to gold brocade, from yellow canary to fuchsia, to Prussian blue.

I hope you will like it!
