From the first day, I am really fighting against the idea of getting a muse. I’m really happy to see any kind of woman wearing our clothes. Again, it’s going to be a part of her own story, and she is going to create something with it… it’s not mine anymore. The girl I have in mind is charismatic and fragile at the same time. There are many women in the office, and they are a huge source of inspiration, because one day they are going to be - like every single person, even me, on a Monday, you’re going to be sexy, and on Tuesday, you’re moody… That’s what I like. Nobody can be a fatale every single day. And that must be super-difficult… to be the woman that people want you to be. I’m sure that you want to be wearing your old pyjamas one day a year, at least you know?
CAN YOU TELL ME A BIT MORE ABOU THE STARTING POINT AND INSPIRATION FOR YOUR NEW COLLECTION?
I had the idea of a Paris of the late ‘40’s, when the city has to rebuild itself. So, I had in mind a woman, kind of strong, infused with this fresh feeling. It’s just about the feeling, because freshness is not an age, it’s a mentality. She would travel Paris from LaSorbonne to Notre Dame, with books. I had in mind a cool, clever, elegant woman, who wouldn’t spend like four hours in the bathroom to prepare herself. She would just take a fur coat with brogue shoes.
Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.
