Backstage & details
Sharpening, stripping down, thinking forward. A focus on line, color, shape: the reality of clothing, in tension, with precision. The same erotic tension and precision of an anthurium flower: a product of nature that looks like an object of design, and is treated as such.
Reducing, tightening, and redesigning the silhouette. Engineered panniers have a neat shape. Short dresses are very short: shrunken, either in enameled metal covered in a flowery pattern or in twistedly compact knit. So are leather and hunting jackets, which are almost reduced to miniatures.
Every so often, a pixelated glitch. The normality of T-shirts, shirts, and chinos is twisted, padded, elongated, and reproportioned. The process of draping, frozen at its peak.
Light that plays with texture: absorbed by velvet and waxed cotton, reflected by enamel and leather.
Spike-heeled pumps, flats, pumped-up rubber pumps, pumps swarming in deflated balloons. The Puffer Goya bag continues its play on volume. Elongated and streamlined, the new Paseo bag. Braided sterling silver bracelets add elevated adornment.
A collection that is a blunt design statement, amplified through the act of reduction.
