A lot of embellishment isn’t really my thing when I think of what I want to see men wearing or what I want to propose to them. So this season I reduced, but of course reduction isn’t very fun without a few moments of complete flamboyance or voluptuousness. So even though I was trying to do a pure impression, I indulged in impurity as well, because voluptuousness when it goes all the way becomes almost unhealthy. I have always loved that moment of when it becomes a little unhealthy. So when I looked at this collection I was looking at purity and impurity at the same time.I used bigger volumes, more fabric and not glamorous fabrics, in fact, industrial fabrics. If I use glamorous fabrics I like to use them in the most casual way and I like to elevate industrial fabrics by using them in a glamorous way.
