For Fall/Winter 2023, designers Hughes Fauchard and Rémi Bats of UNIFORME kept it simple. Titled “Counting Sheep,” the collection forms an essential wardrobe defined by clean lines, soft textures and neutral colors.
“‘Counting Sheep’ is our personal version of Sleeping Beauty,” they said in a statement. “It’s about evacuating anxiety and finding comfort and space to dream in clothes that give the wearer a sense of protection, softness and ease while also hewing to exacting design standards and our philosophy of conscious minimalism. In many ways, these are the wardrobe staples we’ve always wanted to do.”
Silhouettes embrace a country aesthetic without sacrificing their metropolitan mindset, proving their versatility between work-and-home wear. In a color story spanning ecru to dark green, and khaki to brown, UNIFORME expresses the sheep’s airy feel with wool and cotton fabrications. Monochromatic ensembles contrast oversized knits, and camouflage has a revival, specifically on a Fox Brothers English flannel overshirt and matching military-inspired drawstring pants.
Utilitarian codes also influence the collection, with pieces made from compact Japanese cotton comprising a micro-chevron weave reminiscent of military fabrications. Super 130s Wool & Cashmere, a textile most often called on for made-to-measure suits, forms the foundation for UNIFORME’s relaxed essentials. Denim, produced in a smooth GOTS cotton-linen blend from Italy, boasts small impurities.
In closing, “Counting Sheep” welcomes UNIFORME’s first-ever line of underwear, made from all leftover fabrics. Peruse UNIFORME’s full FW23 collection in the gallery above.
