Gallerist’s in-house brand brings us beachwear that travels between sand and the city. These designs were inspired by Brazilian women and, through its aesthetic, can translate strength into simplicity. The collection mixes clothes and accessories that embrace a relaxed, contemporary style combining natural fibers, such as linen, cotton, cambric, and resin ornaments. Denise Cassou created the Linen Summer 2022 collection and was inspired by what she experienced during the pandemic period of isolation. 

Her house became a refuge, and she began to inhabit it as a force to assist her in the creation of this collection. Elements of her daily life such as her walks around the nearby lake where everyday life became poetry, and nature surrounding her became the protagonist of her inspiration. 

Summer 22 is a collection that talks about the power of creation. Creation is enabled by our homes, and for Denise, “Whoever creates is never alone”. The result is that her contemplations are translated into clothing families: Shadows, Hedgehog, Egret, Deep Sea, and Mother of Pearl. Each clothing family refers to a phase of her isolation that was infused by elements seen or felt by Denise inside her house.
