So there is lots of energy to bring something new to this silhouette, a new proposition, even several.I am full of contrasts, I love order and disorder I love the new wave from the 80s and today’s sporty energy. The idea is not just to concentrate on one past reference and rework it today but rather to make a synthesis of many sources of inspirations and references to do something new. That is creativity for me anyway. In our savoir faire there is the idea of contrast, we have worked on the sport and streetwear pieces and we made them in a couture way and this time with handmade finishes such as 150 meters of lace worked like embroidery on a jacket. The idea is to take sporty or streetwear elements and rework them in the ateliers and do something of a very high quality.
