Fall/Winter 2008-2009 Women’s Collection

Monday, March 3rd, 2008


Carroussel du Louvre, Paris, 25 February 2008: The Fall/Winter 2008-2009 women’s collection draws direct inspiration from the book The Beautiful Fall in which author Alicia Drake evokes a Paris of the 1970s and how, under the influence of American models and the personality of New York illustrator Antonio Lopez, “Parisian designers” learned to become “stylists.”
The collection echoes Antonio Lopez’s kaleidoscopic and flamboyant style and the Parisian chic of the generation’s muses, such as Paloma Picasso, Loulou de La Falaise, Pat Cleveland and Donna Jordan.
Bourgeois dress codes of the past are shattered in a free-spirited atmosphere where nocturnal adventures meet the search for bohemian sophistication.
The elegance of black and beige is coupled with a frenzied shape. Intense violet and zippers with oversized pull tabs, serving equally as a decorative element, structure and enliven shirts, blouses, smoking jackets, dress coats and printed silk twill scarves.


Product of a collaboration with Elvis Pompilio, the hat collection is a hybrid of the traditional borsalino and cap and is presented here in black and chestnut felt, worn tipped to underline the eyes.
Graphic and vibrant tights and leggings in lurex and mercerized cotton complete the silhouette while recalling the edgy features characteristic of Antonio Lopez’s “street culture” photographs and drawings.
Shoes with heels striped in gold, violet and black partake in the creation of a fresh and contemporary definition of glamour and the fantasy of Parisian elegance.
Dani Siciliano and Sam Sparro co-author the show’s music and perform together a new version of Sam Sparro’s “Black&Gold.”
