« Capturing moments of joy » is the title of the catalogue of the exhibition dedicated to JH Lartigue at Fukushima museum in 2017.
Spring-Summer 2022 collection is an ode to joie de vivre, movement, dance and singing… summertime in motion.
We collected these fragments and pieces of summer which are relating to this state of mind like smelling the fragance of flowers, looking at flickering fish or bird flights.
Here is what has been feeding and bringing to life the mobiles which will be living in our shop windows throughout the season.
Delphine Dupas-David, designer at Catherine André studio, assisted by Samaneh Kasbi, developped this ethereal setting which combines balance and lightness in a dreamy effect…
Every single element has been cut out of fresh and lively colored paper and required meticulous folding and glueing work.
Then, all parts of each flower, like waving crystal paper and wooden beads, has been fixed on thin sticks. Birds and fishes as well as the vocabulary of the collection, have been displayed on the mobiles with fishing thread.
Then, there was still to find the right balance which will allow each mobile to swing freely.
Each mobile has been unpacked piece by piece in the boutiques, before being rearranged and put into life in our shop windows in Paris, Ghent and Rodez.
