"We need to return to nature again. We have lost ourselves in technological speed and synthetic ways of operating. There is so much talk about speed in culture and we are being overwhelmed with technology. Reﬂecting the time is also contributing to the time. I wanted to be as pure as I could with this collection. I guess I just wanted to take a different turn. The majority of this collection is composed of organic ﬁbres."
The collection presents a selection of block bold colours from pea green, electric blue to canary yellow, continuing in the house's direction in developing a signature high waist via tailored but highly feminine proportions, this season almost reminiscent of 70s workwear.
"The liberation of women in the 70s was quite a turn for woman in France. Woman found themselves working at a faster speed as France opened its doors to globalisation. Marriage was less crucial as a means of survival and tradition."
Working with structured boiler suits through to ﬂuid silk kimonos, the collection moves into more organic and pure compositions made of english embroidery, cotton gabardine and navy stripped linen. Speciﬁc fastenings and closures were made in the pantone collection, designed to magnify the feminine silhouette but also facilitate the easy nature of dressing and undressing in a fast-paced environment.
"I enjoy creating the cross over between tailored shapes crossed with 'ﬂou' that is completely off the body. The challenge is to balance a rigorous structure whilst offering a sense of ﬂuidity."
