LA NARCISSE


Continuing in the spirit of brand founder and creative director, Laura Gauthier Petit continues to grow the identity of Paris based couture house, Fête Impériale. 


 Fête Impériale is part of a growing trend of young developing label redefining "savoir - faire" and locally made luxury devoted to "slow fashion". The collection entitled - La NARCISSE - is the celebration of a generational renaissance struggling to keep in the spirit of individualism through the ever- growing speedy nature of digital or avatar self representation in society. 


 The collection focusses on subjects that cross vanity, dress codes of the occult, kraft in quilting, witchcraft and online avatars. 


 "We are all some kind of magicians at the moment, we can create these perfect images of ourselves. There are two sides to the mirror in all of our realities, its can be quite exciting but also really lonely."


The collection opens with structured pieces almost constructed as protective layers, with oversized jackets and victorian sleeves with a nod to the personal style of French female writers including Simone de Beauvoir and Marguerite Duras . Couture techniques including padding, smocking and drape oversee the entire collection including the houses' signature digital prints. Fabrics developed within the collection cross between the noble and synthetic including wool, silk and a coated vinyl. I wanted to work with the idea of surfaces, mirrors and sheen to reflect the notion of glamour. The word has Celtic origins in essence, meaning to blind or create through light and reflection an opposing reality. Almost pulling the wool over someones eyes".
