Describe your Fall/Winter 2017 collection in three words:
Fresh, bright, warm
What is your biggest source of inspiration?
The rhythm of seasons and nature which we can’t live without. Winter must be cool and glistening. We bring light from summer into autumn and winter. Our accessories are beacons of light in the dark days of winter.
Where's the last place you travelled that inspired you?
Portugal. Because the sea runs along the length of the country, the light there is very bright, rendering intense colours and luminous blacks, also accentuating contrasts. The country’s culture is marked with both gravity and joy.
Which was your favorite piece from your latest collection, and why?
The ‘Isla Bonnita’. This big scarf can be worn in winter or summer. It is fine, supple, warm and joyful.
What do you think are the main stakes and challenges for the young designers?
Communication, being discovered, and one’s creations being liked. Being able to meet client demands whilst safeguarding one’s originality.
Which women inspire you the most?
Romy Schneider, Sofia Coppola, Simone Veil
The film that speaks most to your aesthetic?
« La Piscine » directed by Jacques Deray.
What was your first aesthetic ‘coup de foudre’?
If you could live in any era, which one would you choose?
This one; it is the best one because we live in it now
What is your mantra?
