"CAPTURING MOMENTS OF JOY" … these words were introducing the catalogue of the exhibition dedicated to Jacques Henri Lartigue at Fukushima Museum of Art in 2017.
They are perfectly summarizing a wide part of the photographer’s work and inspired me the story of the new Spring Summer collection which is celebrating the pleasure of wearing obvious clothes made for moving, playing, dancing, in other words living.
The graphic ingredients are drawn from Henri Matisse’s Mediterranean artistic world and the color palette, from Paula Modersohn Becker’s paintings and J.H.Lartigue’s 1st autochromes.
As for the leading styles of the collection, they safely went through time and trends to live forever in our wardrobe : tank tops, jeans and their iconic twill, polo shirts, sweat shirts, striped sweaters, the little black dress… have now their knitted and printed version.
Spring-Summer 2022 will be easy, careless and imbued with recovered happiness, against all odds.
