L’embellie - The Upturn
This collection focuses on the world of ancient statuary linked to much more contemporary dress codes. I extract from the sculptures ways of draping and pleating the fabric. I have also stiffened certain parts of my pieces to give them an unexpected twist.
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.

This new collection is a research on the idea of binding two beings into one. It’s a reflection on the feeling od forming a single entity with the loved one: wanting to show it formally the masculine and the feminine are merged on a common piece, the dress codes are mixed. I worked on tailoring codes or even men’s shirts linked to a much more feminine wardrobe.

Patterns are presents on each garment, and despite their very strong identity, they blend and respond to each other to create an unexpected and original marriage.

Dropped Down

This collection begins with an ode to the Icarus myth but also to the Pre-raphaelite movement.
It tells the story of a vain paratrooper who tried to go to hight and felt into nature. Slowly his clothes are being invaded and dematerialized to reveal his fragile body. Every garnment is handcrafted and embellished with textile techniques such as embroidery, leather applique or fragmentation with chain rings.
