SS 19 teaser "Golden Pavilion"
The SS19 collection is inspired by Yukio Mishima’s book «The Temple of The Golden Pavilion».
The story of a monk, so obsessed by the beauty of this temple that he burned it down; a true story from the 2nd world war. This book makes the reader reflect on the notion of beauty in a world in crisis.
The loose cuts reminiscent of the kimonos, enveloping the body to reveal the sensuality of the space between the skin and the fabric becomes a zone of mysterious, sublimated by the movement.
Gold silks, precious and delicate, are counterbalanced by aggressive treatments on denim or Jersey materials, such as Bleaching or overdyed fabric.
A selection of activewear, made in collaboration with Damart combines sensitivity and functionality. Offering a contemporary wardrobe, highlighting the relationship between the body and sportswear.
The print motives of large flowers, placed randomly, exacerbate a dramatic beauty, like a shroud, which make us face the daily violence of the world around us.
