There are some labels you just fall in love with. Everything is just right. Not only the clothes but also the identity, lookbook, model,… One of those brands is the Belgian brand Chauncey by Nathalie Bouhana and David Sdika. Chauncey is a knitwear menswear brand. Nathalie worked for years as a knitwear designer for international luxury brands such as Hermès, Ferragamo and Dunhill. Together with her husband David, she launched Chauncey, the name comes from the cult film Being There in which Peter Sellers plays the main character Chance or Chauncey.
Chauncey is classic with a twist. Just like a lot of other Belgian designer brands, quality and fit are very important to Nathalie and David. They choose the highest quality yarns and manufacturers. The twist is in the detailing. As they like to say themselves: an elegant gentleman traveler look with a slice of Belgian surrealism. I Love Belgium showcases the Spring-Summer 11 collection with Brazilian model Douglas Neitzke. It was inspired by Rene Clement’s 1960 movie Plein Soleil with style icon and heart throb Alain Delon. The thick jersey marine cardigans and the rough knit dark blue crew neck are our favourite styles. We can't wait to make long beach walks in them. But Spring-Summer 11 is still far away, so check out the Fall-Winter 10 lookbook featuring Dominique models edgy Alban Blondiaux. The I Love Belgium team loves the black v-neck with the white leather elbow pads.
