THROUGHOUT HISTORY, TRAVELLERS HAVE BROUGHT BACK SUBLIME GARMENTS FROM DISTANT LANDS. THE SULTAN SOLIMAN THE MAGNIFICENT OFFERED HIS BELOVED WIFE A SUMPTUOUS HOUSECOAT EMBROIDERED WITH GOLD AND ADORNED WITH PRECIOUS STONES.

THIS HISTORICAL FACT HAS LED US TO CREATE A CONTEMPORARY VERSION OF THIS GARMENT, A COAT WITHOUT A CLASP AND IN AN EXCLUSIVE DESIGN.

EACH COAT, EACH KIMONO, EACH PONCHO FROM THIS COLLECTION IS A UNIQUE PIECE CREATED AS A ONE OFF GARMENT, WHICH IS NUMBERED, CERTIFIED AND LISTED.

FASHION IS CYCLICAL, AND ALL SUCCESSFUL COMBINATIONS OF TEXTURES AND SILHOUETTES HAVE ALREADY BEEN INVENTED. ALL THAT IS REQUIRED TO RETHINK THOSE IMAGES OF THE PAST, THEN ADD UNEXPECTED ELEMENTS, AND AN ORDINARY ITEM OF CLOTHING BECOMES EXCEPTIONAL.

GENESIS OF THE CREATION OF A UNIQUE GARMENT FEATURING DISTINCT ETHNIC DESIGNS

EACH PIECE IN THE COLLECTION IS MADE WITH A CLOTH WHICH IS WOVEN FROM THE HAIR OF GOATS LIVING IN COMPLETE FREEDOM IN THE HIGH MOUNTAINS OF INDIA. GATHERED DIRECTLY FROM THE BRANCHES OF HEDGES OR BUSHES, THESE HAIRS ALLOW US TO CREATE A DUVET LIKE CLOTH, OFTEN PARTICULARLY FINE, SOMETIMES INTENTIONALLY COARSE. THE CLOTH WHEN EMBROIDERED TRANSFORMS INTO A PAINTING. WE THEN GIVE IT THE DESIRED FORM AND SILHOUETTE.

THE USE OF A «MIRRORS WORK» TECHNIQUE ALLOWS US TO AFFIX SMALL MIRROR SHARDS ONTO THE FABRIC BY USING A PLUMETIS TECHNIQUE. AT LEAST A HUNDRED PIECES FROM THE COLLECTION STRETCH OUT IN CONTINUOUS LINES WHICH SYMBOLISE OUR JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE. COATS ARE DECORATED WITH SMALL BUTTONS, ELEMENTS WHICH SINCE THE EARLY MISTS OF TIME WE BELIEVED PROTECTED US FROM THE EVIL EYE AND NEGATIVE ENERGY.

Thus, the clothes worn by our ancestors are conjured up in the form of new interpretations. These garments are never just one more item in our wardrobe, but represent unique works of art which stand out from the ordinary.
