L’embellie - The Upturn
Worn by an emancipated and party girl, this collection brings together couture looks and much more casual pieces. The clothes are layered together and creates unexpected looks.
A large part of this project is about up cycling: the re-appropriation of existing clothes that I bleach, cut and sequence to then form new pieces. An attention is given to the bleaching process to give a mineral touch to the jeans.
The title of this collection refers to this particular year that is 2020. The fact that I was able to hang on to my work during the months of confinement, and having to think of innovative solutions with the material I had at home has greatly improved my living environment and my mental health.
