« He was masculine and protective, while being feminine and submissive ».

Patti Smith about Robert Mapplethorpe in Just Kids (2010)

I was told I was not good enough, too queery, too feminin, too campy. Let them know that non will be as manly as me body and mind !

I wanted to marry my opposites in a sensitive mixture, a collection of life, telling my story. I have diverted prejudices, playing with my femininity, caprice of nature, to turn to my advantage fashion to translate my underlying masculinity.

In my Haute Montagne F / W 2015 collection, I have transpose my passion for the mountains into tapered and urban silhouettes. My modern man is sporty and worldly. Skinny pants and shorts curling indecency become masculine and manly. Silk organza shirts and tank tops rub shoulders with suede and neoprene vests with delicate and ingenious cuts.

My androgynes surprised around the corner of a hidden mountain train, offbeat but remain in harmony with the Alps landscape that inspired this collection. It wouldn’t be surprising to run into them later on the catwalks and the hype nights of the city.
