SILK ROAD: Six years after shutting his signature label, Jean Colonna is making a fashion comeback. Once known for his tough, rock ’n’ roll looks, this time around the Belgium-born designer is taking a softer approach with a collection of simple tanks tops and T-shirts made from fine silks and cashmeres woven in Nepal. “It’s a totally new direction,” said Colonna of the line, via which he intends to flout fashion traditions. “I don’t want seasons, I don’t want to hold sales.” The collection, which he said would expand to include accessories and fragrances, will be sold mainly online at from September and also in pop-up boutiques. In June, a run of 300 pieces will go on sale, while 150 silk tops were handed out at this year’s Hyères festival. Prices will start at 90 euros, or $120 at current exchange, up to 300 euros, or $398. Since closing his brand after his fall-winter 2004 collection, Colonna has designed for Ramosport and collaborated with artists such as the late musician Alain Bashung.
