Light effects glorify fabrics, lending them both a surge of energy and an unreal quality that is at times futuristic, at times dreamlike.
Metallics are worked in fresh new colors, with boldly surprising mixes of complementary contrasts and luminous greyish tones. Flat lamés shimmer with printed motifs. Silkies are given a modern edge with aluminized finishings and technical calenderings. Lace – sometimes transparent, sometimes reflecting – dabbles in illusion, taking on an almost dreamlike quality.
Piercing the darkness of browns and blacks, solar yellows and luminous oranges seem to throw off the fiery rays of an eternal sunset. In this ballet of light and shadow, everything is in motion, on shifting silkies, supple suitings and embroideries featuring reversible sequins. Graduated checks, ikat-style stripes and sprayed prints all multiple their halo-like effects. Blurred and sharp contrasts heighten the impression of distant depths teeming with strange phenomena, mirages, will-o’-the-wisps and magnetic storms.
