Which picturesque atmosphere would Casablanca‘s Charaf Tajer borrow from for his latest line-up of artistic pieces? The Paris-based, Moroccan designer envisioned the scenic views of Lake Garda in northern Italy, transporting the mountainous landscape and lush gardens onto breezy button-ups, matching denim sets and cozy loungewear for his take on “Idealism” at the Fall/Winter 2020 runway show in Paris Fashion Week on Friday.

While crisp blue skies and wintry fields were aplenty, Tajer also exalted the canine this season, putting his own fun spin on the animal print trend seeping its way into menswear. For his pick of the litter, however, the designer strayed from the usual snakeskins and leopard spots, opting instead to use the Dalmatian as his collection’s “winter companion.” The furry friend made its way onto the likes of crewneck sweaters and pajama-style tops as quirky graphics, and dotted pea coats and belted trenches with its iconic spot patterns. Still, the balance of the range was grounded in pastels, which somewhere along the way melded into dark tweeds and burly plaids.

There was also a crisp moment for suiting, ranging from Chanel-inspired editions cut with boxy silhouettes to satiny versions featuring wallpaper-worthy patterns. The brand also ventured into technical outerwear for the first time, introducing a capsule of sleek ski wear coated in shades of white and grey. Another major debut came by way of the New Balance 327 sneakers that hit the runway, marking Casablanca’s first-ever partnership with another brand. Meanwhile, Casablanca’s signature monogram print found its way onto the likes of slick coats, half-zip sweaters and even turtlenecks, capitalizing on the ever-popular logo trend throughout the assortment.
