Zara Taps Cool-Girl Charlotte Gainsbourg for Denim Collection

Thank you for joining Sourcing Journal & industry leaders at our SOURCING SUMMIT NY, as we discussed the most pressing issues of the day. View the Summit on demand through Jan. 2, and stay tuned for the upcoming Companion Report.

“Effortless chic” defines the latest collection from Zara, which worked with English-French musician, actor and all-around cool girl Charlotte Gainsbourg to bring the concept to life.

The 23-piece women’s capsule collection merges masculine and feminine influences, with denim—comprised of both conventional and recycled cotton—serving as a central theme. The fabric is featured in key pieces ranging from a slouchy oversized denim jacket to an extra-long, relaxed-fit black jean and a cropped flare jean in a dark blue wash.

Denim shirting, as well as non-denim essentials like a triangle bra, long-sleeved sweater and ultra-lightweight T-shirt are mixed in to reflect the creative’s low-key, everyday style.

“Zara understood that these are my essentials; I didn’t want there to be too much choice,” Gainsbourg stated. “These clothes feel natural to me.”

Accessories such as a leather backpack, simple black belt and a round-toe ankle boot punctuate the collection and complete the ever-popular cool-girl aesthetic.

Gainsbourg, the daughter of ’70s singer songwriter and model Jane Birkin, previously starred in a short film as part of Zara Home’s Fall/Winter 2020 campaign. Denim has long been a key part of her uniform, as demonstrated by the Canadian tuxedo she wore to the 2019 Cannes Film Festival and also this year.

The collection echos the head-to-toe denim looks recently seen on the Spring/Summer 2022 catwalks, signaling a return to pared-down wardrobes and fewer fleeting trends.

The limited-edition Charlotte Gainsbourg collection is now available exclusively on the Zara website and in stores, and ranges from $17-$299.
