Spring-Summer 2019

LOOKS OF THE COLLECTION SPRING-SUMMER 2019

Islands…
Implanted into the oceans, like mangroves, in the middle of nowhere… outremer.
Eternal symbols of paradise, of travels, terrae incognitae, and archipelagos where foreign and remote cultures have forever passed by.
The single sound of their name makes one dream: Samoa, Nuku Hiva, Maui, Iriomote, Okinawa!
They aroused so many journeys around the world, so many adventure tales to people like Joshua Slocum, Lafcadio Hearn, Herman Melville…
Over there, everyday life is intertwined with divine and magic, and nature is considered as sacred as in Shun Medoruma’s folktales.
Here is the world where our vagabond is moving, inventing elegant looks for herself while wandering through these red lands which look like nowhere else.
