PROVOKING UNSTEADY BALANCES
Focusing on a “cubist” skirt, prettily disordered,
on contrasting and mixed stripes, asymmetric folds and irregular pleats,
elaborated pre- or post-garment manufacturing.
Yarn-dyed or printed shirting-style cottons or everyday silkies. Playing on improbable blends right through to ribbons, accessories and trims, zips and jewellery.
COVERED WITH TRANSPARENCY
Transposing transparency and ultra-lightness onto outer-layer pieces.
Coats crispy as tracing paper, trenches with glass reflections or fine-crafted cottony jackets. Contradictory layers over deliberately contrasting pants and tops. Plastics over rustics, naturals over artificials.
Trims become invisible and deliberately synthetic.
BOOSTING THE SIMPLICITY OF THE DRESS
Paring down shape to the extreme simplicity of a rectangle, then gracefully puckering, gathering, tying. Favouring featherweight linens and shirting cottons, delicate rustics and decoration with light stippling.
Contrasting the look with accessories and trimmings, playing with plastics and metals in dynamic colours.
