Nestled in the picturesque village of Rossinière, the Grand Chalet stands as the largest wooden house in Switzerland and perhaps all of Europe. Built in 1754, this architectural marvel later became the residence of the renowned French painter of Polish origins, Balthasar Klossowska de Rola, known in the art world as Balthus. Drawing inspiration from his timeless works, Ligne Noire Enfant delivered its SS24 collection.


The designs transcend seasonal trends, embracing a classic aesthetic that is both modern and eternal. Each piece echoes the refined simplicity and understated luxury found in Balthus’s paintings, creating a unique blend of art and fashion that speaks to the discerning tastes of today’s youth.


Every item in the collection reflects the meticulous attention to detail and quality craftsmanship that Ligne Noire Enfant is known for. From flowing dresses with intricate geometric patterns to tailored shirts in a palette of refined colors, each piece tells a story of its own. The use of premium fabrics ensures that the garments are as comfortable as they are stylish, making them perfect for the summer season.
