DESERT ROSE - Women RTW SS18

This story was inspired by the exquisite color combination I saw on many Summer Spring 18 shows: mauve and pink, associated to beige and camel tones.

I saw rose petals dancing in a wind of sand. A feeling of warmth associated to the freshness and delicacy of fresh flowers perfume. I saw a desert rose in Morrocco.

A GENTLEMAN AT HEART - Couture SS18

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 " .
