Andrea Crews is already 15 years old. Far from having a teenage crisis, the French brand founded in 2002 by Maroussia Rebecq invites us, this season, to go back to school... but not just any school. Andrea Crews is gifted, and if 15 years old is synonymous with high school, it is directly to the university that she sends us.

Andrea Crews presents a collection spring-summer 2018 collection in collaboration with Sergio Tacchini. A collection with a refined style, inevitably inspired by the street culture of the 90s, mixing oversized, unisex and colorful elements. "Yale", "Harvard", flocked on hoodies, the two names sometimes merged together on t-shirts cut in two, sewn back together to become one. The prints on the t-shirts call for "resistance", and evoke this "youth brigade" full of future, therefore full of hope, a band of cool young people with good taste.

Andrea Crews dares to be asymmetrical, in the cuts, with this shirt with shorter sides than the other, as did A-Cold-Wall* this seasonand in the patterns, combining solid color with stripes. The zippers on the feet of the pants, for example, add a sportswear detail to a collection well anchored in its time. The Parisian brand hijacks the codes of fashion through its streetwear couture, and adopting an ethical approach: theupcycling - which we already talked about in our article on Piet Hein Eek.
