"Given the strange times we are going through, it was clear that I would have to work differently this season. Unlike previous collections, fabrics were the starting point of my creative process.
With the global lockdown around the world, we couldn’t order new materials, so I decided to work only with the ones we already had in the atelier, in a sustainable spirit.
From there emerged a fascinating exercise in associations of textures and colours, a very enriching experience.
I also wanted to dedicate this collection to the joy that is part and parcel of my profession, to the pleasure of creating, to the desire to showcase the know-how of the hands in my atelier.
“Attitude” embodies this spirit. Colours form a palette, each connected with a mood, with a sensation. Contrasts are free and happy, hues intense and vibrant. I let my pencil dance on paper, sketching silhouettes — pure without being minimal — that follow the body in its movement, enhancing it and highlighting materials through the needle’s artistry.
Jersey kisses curves, fluid chiffon velvet drapes on them, crepe suggests them. Nods to the masculine play with delicate details of laces, embroideries, jewels, and furs.
More than ever, elegance and sensuality are the red thread woven throughout this collection, along with my long-held respect and love for the female form. It’s my vision of an attitude, a call for optimism, an invitation to smile."
