Season / Colours

Season

A low-key and strong minded season.

A season in two tempos. An ambitious and fearless season forging a passing between apparently opposite, yet deeply complementary, polarities.
A season searching for a sincere, fundamental, obvious quality, for disconnection and protection, counterbalanced by the gleefully extravagant, lightly ironic touch of stand-out moments.
A season to build fashion far from lukewarm compromises, to treat oneself to the freedom to have fun, to take a stance, for a technological and profoundly human future.

AMBITIOUSLY LOW-KEY

Energy is concentrated in understated looks, with sensory and/or functional content enriching simplicity. Clothing addresses a need to get away from the constant visual frenzy. Technology takes on a human dimension; new artificial skins reveal unique sensations. Fluids are denser, deep shimmerings mesmerize the eye. Light carapaces surround and protect, sincere handles strive for simplicity with panache.

FEARLESSLY STRONG-MINDED

Fearlessness without provocation: it's time to give vent to a joyful vitality. Taking a light-hearted approach to evening, courting eccentricity and not being afraid of it, daring shine with mastery and boldness. Skilfully taking an ironic approach to major archetypes to go one step further, and fully transform the classics with benevolence. Anomaly becomes an identifying characteristic and a source of personality, a way to affirm difference.

 

 

 

 

Colours

The autumn winter 1718 colour range is based on delicate, austere, airy tones, arising to a concentrate of irreverent multicolour. The two main themes open complementary directions where colours meet without neutralizing each other.

 A LINE OF SILENT ENERGIES
A line rooted in air, an atmosphere inhabited by synthetic lights, deep shadows, enigmatic substances and digital flesh. Colours initiate a sensitive dialogue between pragmatism and poetry, the abstract and the human, technology and the senses.

 A CONCENTRATION OF IMPERTINENT INTENSITIES
Effusive, happy colours in playful and compact constructions brush up against deliberately dingy shades. Cheerfully insolent frictions multiply between paleness and intensity, between dusty tones and saturated hues, between deceptively complementary colours.
