today Sep 29, 2016
Iceberg is going back to its roots. As reported by FashionNetwork.com at the end of August, the Italian fashion label belonging to the Gilmar group has called on Jean-Charles de Castelbajac to create a new capsule collection. The French designer was Iceberg's first creative director during the label's golden era, between 1976 and 1987.
The 30-item collection is called Iceberg Icons, and features a revised selection of signature models created by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac 30 years ago, adding a new, contemporary twist to them. The mood is altogether playful, marked by the designer's distinctive pop vibe.
"I designed this capsule collection with the same joy I felt when I worked on Iceberg originally. I wanted it to be pure and poetic. The stripes are a reference to awnings, sails and pennants flying freely in the wind, this summer 2017 has a distinctively light-hearted touch, like a tender memory snuggling inside our hearts," stated the designer in a press release.
Iceberg's men's and women's lines are now styled by young British designer James Long. The label has stopped showing this season, and is turning towards a more street-savvy, commercial range.
