Sans Gêne Embraces Personal Complexity With Second Collection
Filled with asymmetrical blazers, leather garments and more.
This past June, Los Angeles-based label Sans Gêne made its debut with an emphasis on contemporary unisex wares and a commitment to uplifting community. Now, the brand has returned for the Winter 2022 season with its second collection.
In expanding the Sans Gêne (without reservation, discomfort or embarrassment) ethos, the new offering looks at founder Caroline McCaul’s international travels for a multidimensional outlook, while remaining rooted in the sunny California city. Contemporary ready to wear silhouettes take form through virgin wool trench coats, oversized blazers with boxy silhouettes, paneled calfskin leather pants, relaxed short-sleeve button-down shirts, bodycon tops and more.
The pieces then come to life via classic shades of black, gray and white alongside cuts of live green, deep emerald green and beige. Leather pieces like two-toned blazers, paneled pants and seamless overshirt-like tops serve as collection highlights – offering an elevated take on refined comfort.
“We are all complex, and even the difficult things we face are beautiful. This concept is integrated into the patterns in both subtle ways and layered, paneled design elements. I was also thinking about change and how we are constantly growing and evolving,” said Sans Gêne’s designer/creative director, Lily Barnes. “I want our Sans Gêne community to have options while wearing these clothes.”
Check out the gallery above for a look at the offering. Sans Gêne’s second collection will be available soon online.
