TOP & SHIRT
A light air of wool: cotton flannels, warm handles with micro sandings and fine brushings. Plays on yarns and chiné grounds, dispersed micro-knops. Deceptively thick -looking, cosy checks in warm soft colourways. Winter ginghams, blanket and slipper-plaids.
Complex semi-plains: patterns in the shadow, in blended darks, plays on weaves combined with plays on chiné or thrown yarns, puzzle-style geometric figures. Caning effects, and textured weaves to perturb the reading of micro yarn-dyeds.
Room for emptiness: hollowed-out stripes and checks, scattered stipplings, more spaced-out micro-dobbies.
Decoration / Pattern
Outsize motifs and increasingly more elaborate bases.
Unique layers: more and more interactions between grounds and patterns. Light woollens, velours, jacquards and even lace. Blends of techniques, tools, genres and periods, from the precise to the barely traced.
Winter gardens: florals and bouquets blooming on dark grounds, engineered in strange still-lifes, or on graduated bases, bizarre vegetation, a poisonous dazzle in the darkness.
Enlarged: giant patterns, out-of-frame geometrics and herringbones, XXL paisleys.
Early (XXth) century: from William Morris to Art Deco, Bloomsbury to the Roaring Twenties, non-conformist colourways and dimensions.
BLOUSES / DRESSES
Fleshy fluidity: knits and wovens with warm or velvety handles, with or without wool. Epidermal Cupro and Lyocell blends, enrobing gummy sensations, carefully dosed elasticity. Lustrous silkies, satiny fluids, plain or printed panné velvets.
Colour shine: metalloplastics and lamés in dark colourways, without exaggerated shine. Deliberately gleaming velour and panné knits for very glamorous homewear.
Layered fantasy: over-printed joyful laces, wool embroidery for everyday.
Knit tee-shirts and tops
Blocked knit: compact and light, mercerised cottons and refined felted wool, to structure tee-shirts like dresses or shirts.
Skin-touch softness:natural/artificial blends, almost weightless yet elastic. Velour.
Warm transparency: woolly voiles and fine ribs. Synthetic/wool jacquards and burnt-outs, transparencies made opaque with brushings and plays on hairy yarns.
