Collection 2014 SS Special Edition: „Le fabuleux destin Mime”
Her last collection collection was inspired by the pantomime artists seen on the streets of Paris. They don’t speak, only show what they want to say.
I wish people would think first before they say anything, or would just rather mime as well, and this became my message. I fell in love with the monochrome colors of the pantomime artists, and all their details like suspender and bow tie. My pantomime artist is a woman who is really bohemian but, elegant at the same time.
Her make up is sad, but somehow is lively as well and she wants to make you believe that life is wonderful.
I am personally facinate by her aesthetics, and beautiful designs and concepts. Not to mention the mix of colors stamps is amazing. What about you?
