Ton's film references mirror the classics-revisited feeling of Deveaux's spring/summer 2019 womenswear collection. "We are always thinking about how to tweak and elevate essentials, and oftentimes that finds its roots in classic silhouettes," he says. The trio push the envelope with fabrications, too. "While we still keep things luxury and use the best materials, we do try different fabrics, such as papery nylons, taffetas, plaid tablecloth or other unique blends that the mills are working on," adds Ton.

The colour palette for spring/summer 2019 is discreet and subdued, in which nude and beige feature prominently, and also lends itself to the idea of androgyny. "The concept of 'skin' was the initial starting point," says Ton. "We were thinking about our Deveaux woman as someone who only wants to reveal so much, and is careful and selective in what she reveals. She likes masculine clothes, but is comfortable with a certain sensuality and femininity. Both give her confidence and empowerment. We then contrasted these luxe feminine fabrications with the papery nylons and masculine twills from our men's collection. We were thinking about this woman in New York and how she would want to look, but also how she would handle the city in the summer heat."
