PARIS, FRANCE — Fashion designer Randi Barry unveiled her latest collection, "Summer on the Seine," at La Galerie Bourbon, 79bis Avenue Marceau, on October 1, 2023.

Inspired by the remarkable efforts to clean up the Seine River in advance of the 2024 Olympics in Paris, this collection was a harmonious blend of style and sustainability, epitomizing the essence of Paris in summer.

A highlight of the collection was the debut of the "toile de sea" ensemble, a masterpiece that paid homage to the rich history of French textiles. Drawing inspiration from the iconic "toile de Jouy," a renowned fabric known for its intricate pastoral motifs and historical significance, Randi Barry infused this classic French style with a modern twist.
