MONTAGUT X French Artist Hortense Bender
This 2022 Spring Summer season, MONTAGUT collaborates with Hortense Bender, a young and energetic French artist, renowned for her sunny, colorful illustrations.
For this collaboration with MONTAGUT, Hortense focused on 2 regions of France which are representative of a French holiday lifestyle. Brittany to the North West for Spring and Provence to the South East for Summer.
Brittany is a region of tradition and character, characterized by long beaches, fishermen villages and great simplicity. To represent its relaxed, unpretentious vibes, Hortense drew inspiration from the sailor art of living. She designed traditional stoned house, fishing boats, marine anchors, crepes and striped Jersey t-shirts. A cold palette of blue and green hues brings to life the region’s unpredictable weather and beautiful Atlantic Ocean atmosphere.
“MONTAGUT is for me representative of certain chic and casual lifestyle in French. We call that “L’art de vivre à la française”. Hortense Bender
