i'm not there

Can you tell me a bit more about the starting point and inspiration for your new collection?

I had the idea of a Paris of the late '40s, when the city has to rebuild itself. So, I had in mind a woman, kind of strong, infused with this fresh feeling. It's just about the feeling, because freshness is not an age, it's a mentality. She would travel paris from La Sorbonne to Notre Dame, with books. I had in mind a cool, clever, elegant woman, who wouldn't spend like four hours in the bathroom to prepare herself. She would just take a fur coat with brogue shoes.
