de Montparnasse embodies the spirit of independence of women. By
her behaviour during the twenties and thirties, she put morale
back into question. An illegitimate child, which had to fight
her way through life to finally become a prominent figure of the
intellectual and artistic scene of Montparnasse.
Since then, Kiki is particularly famous for
her personality and most of all the photos and paintings, where
she poses nude, she has become a true source of inspiration to
me. I wanted to create an imaginary wardrobe at the image of her
avant-garde character. I like the idea of adapting this
intriguing figure from the past to the present.
My work is inspired by the references of the
time as well as current standards that creates a unique cocktail. I
try to balance the codes of current fashion with my imagination, two
contradictory terms I juggle with everyday. This collection is the
result of a subtle balance between the practical aspect of the
clothes and their unbridled creativity.
