This winter collection is dedicated to the American poet Sylvia Plath (1932- 1963) and to Meredith Monk (1942) who is a composer, singer, dancer and performer.
The love of Sylvia for the sublimation of DAILY LIFE and also her attraction for both colours: red and blue. Her passion for British culture, taste, tradition and the Cambridge college atmosphere where she studied, in London during the fifties.
The love of Meredith for her sober, strong and very personal relation to space, and an unpredictable, passionate engagement towards experimental, avant- garde music in New York and worldwide. Both have an influential power on this collection, which can be both lyrical, for Sylvia and more minimal for Meredith. Shimmering shadowed knitwear in fine baby alpaca, soft and hairy, or slubbed alpaca handknit, and fine merino knitwear with full of original details and smart placed colours. Strongly belted dresses with narrow waist and wide skirts underline the fifties memory. The luxury is hidden in the beautiful materials in Scottish checks: brushed mohair, soie sauvage, or smooth and sober dark wool drap. Or the print is micro and minimal, or it is lyrical in Habutai silk in an almost abstract poppy print. The aim of this collection remains on timelessness and enigmatic sensibility.
