Spring Summer 2013

My collection

The Spring / Summer starts during a journey to Rhodes.

The collection starts during a journey to Rhodes, staying in a contemporary hotel where I have been fascinated by the light and the ceramics. The diversity of the sizes, the colours, the effects of the materials, shining, matt…gave to each of the places a character, an identity, all in conserving a harmonious place. The light stroke these ceramics and, depending on the hour of the day, gave different resonances. I have printed one ceramic in grey and beige tones with an intarsia of a crystal sliver; the light of it is still visible…After that I was looking for stones of big sizes to stick, in order to follow this line in conserving the same colour chart and in adding a little bit of black. Matter also in the riveted resin pins on the collars, the belts…and dyed in the colours of the fabrics, to produce with the light just a slightly different tone, something very delicate. And by opposing or more complementing this big stones, I drew necklaces on fabrics, where I was looking for a finesse of the stones in putting them delicately on fluid jersey viscose dresses.

Delicacy also in a print of petals of roses stretched in order to form a path like strewn with roses. Roses again with varnished linen matching with this print in the colour way and by the splits of chromed metal that we can find onto fine riveted plates onto belts or onto dress braces out of iron steel discs. And to amplify the femininity I added transparency that shows in different ways in English broidery on pure white cotton and pieces of lace in anise or blue marine. The belts of the jackets and skirts are adorned with ribbons of plaited leather, the varnished linen framed with triangles of fine suede, the leather plaited on pockets and collars, the suits become tricoloured, coral, beige and black, the woven fabrics are underlined by fluorescent yellow stripes and bring us back to the city, the neon light, reflectors, the living colours bursting in a last print, coral, green, anise, yellow…

This collection ends up by a lace jacquard with fine ribbons of voile preluding the end of an afternoon, prolonged by stones stitched onto voile incorporated onto décolleté of dresses that we are wearing with boleros out of voile ribbons, and concludes with a smoking embroidered with ribbons of steel pearls that we can wear accordingly to our mood yin or yang, black or white, and with an anaconda bolero that we wear over a dress framed by steel plates showing reptile effect… the night can start…
