A SYMBOLIC COLLABORATION
The students of ENSCI-Les Ateliers were inspired by the landscapes of Arles, from the rugged Alpilles hills to the sandy coastline of the Camargue. The region is the home to groves of olives and paddy fields of rice, alongside the precious safeguarded natural environment of the Crau Plain, the last European steppe, with its peacefully grazing sheeps. All the excellence of the French wool industry is united here, from the sheep breeder to the designer, another demonstration of Brun de Vian-Tiran’s role as a benevolent, responsible and caring ecosystem, full of promise for the future.
The ultimate expression of the region and the know-how wich have nourished Brun de Vian-Tiran for more than two centuries, and for which we proudly carry the banner.
The 2022 collection: 'Arles'
For the first colors and drawings of the Arles collection, the students of ENSCI-Les Ateliers have worked on a typical theme of the Mérinos d'Arles Antique® sheeps: their territory. Through their moodboards, they have explored the successive worlds of these landscapes, from the Alpilles hills to the Camargue.
A collection with four variations
For more than 10 years, ENSCI – Les Ateliers has been using its know-how to create original and unique capsule creations with us. To do so, the students immerse themselves in the history of our house in order to transcribe our values in the creations developed while considering our technical constraints.
4 colors have been created :
Aube: The glowing sun close to the horizon, characteristic color of the salins, the still stagnant mist envelops the Camargue with a layer of mystery, both solitude and charm.
Embrun: The region of Arles and its vegetation are covered with salty droplets carried by the wind. Nature takes back all its rights.
Graminée: Whether slightly sparse or densely planted, these plants clarify the undulating gold and silver chiseled plains beneath the Mistral wind.
Olivier: The valleys of the Alpilles are marked by the presence of the thousand-year-old tree that gives here a famous oil and colors the landscape with its silvery green-grey, trace of the alliance of always between man and nature, just like sheep breeding.
This is how we propose to you the Arles collection. Scarves, throws, cushions, tote-bags and phone cases show the design and technical skills of ENSCI and two centuries of expertise preserved and modernized by Brun de Vian-Tiran.
