This week my new designs for the Out and Wet 2020 collections launched with W&D in an amazing new virtual museum. The new virtual kingdom!
A memory of home:
Confinement touched us all, closed in our spaces our mind kept on traveling before slowly withdrawing and finding quiet. Passed experiences emerged in images, colours, fractions of memories.
Different places in which we felt at home, various moments in which we felt marvelled. One of these memories is behind this design, a memory of a beautiful field in bloom with my loved ones around. Spots of colours and shades, translated into a graphical game of surfaces, textures and lines.
The top design, in vivid colours of day time, while the bottom design with less materialized colours, and sharper lights of an evening time.
The mountains of my childhood:
We all recently were confined in our houses and brutally were reminded of the most important values of our lives. This period brought me back to this naïve like drawing of the mountains. The colourful and warm palette, the handmade sketch brings back a childhood simplicity and joy. Yet, it stays clean and elegant and does not suggest a childlike illustration but rather a dream like open landscape.
In the Bush
I leave in Paris, as many cities in the world it is dense, polluted and lacking nature. Our environment is something we all share, and a green environment, rich in natural vegetation can ensures a rich biodiversity, reduces air pollution, reduce noise, cool down the air, turn our lives in the city more sustainable, agreeable and healthy. Aspiring to more sustainable cities, I transported my impression of the wood to the collection. If it can’t always be the trees themselves, let it be their poetic memory on our façade.
