Inspired by the sharp Givenchy coats silhouettes, portraiying a strong and yet ultra feminine woman.
It reminded me of the very peculiar grace and striking beauty of Marlene Dietrich, playing with the codes of masculine - feminine, creating a sensual, smoky and mysterious aura.

She was not one to let anyone dictate her ways - but her heart and soul, making her a leading figure of Feminism and anti-nazism at her time.

The Star once said " I am, at heart, a gentleman " .

LE BAL - Couture SS18

A balroom where the time seems suspended, the elegant crowd is dancing, laughing, drinking champagne. In other rooms, the game continues for little groups or loners.
The picture freezes this moment.

Graphic black and white silhouettes, sharp elegance. We feel a contrast beetween the loud atmosphere that should be at a Bal and the quietness of the pictures.

Must RSVP.
