The fabrics are inspired by the archives of historical tailors, where expert hands select obsolete weaves, rich, precious and sophisticated, but forgotten, and reinvigorate them by criss-crossing quality masculine jacquards with satin ribbons, pulling apart houndstooth patterns for elaborate couture-looking weaves and draping shiny silks with micro patterns.
Both transparent and lightweight fabrics in shades inspired by archives and heavier weight fabrics with monochromatic patterns have soft, fluffy and brushed fibres.
Despite its austerity, this theme conceals a subtle irony in its proposal of patterns. Vichy check, plaid, and gingham, normally used in shirts, are also proposed in outerwear weights and upgraded with the use of monochrome tones or oversize volumes.
Double-face fabric represents this irony, by showing a bourgeois face and hiding sparkling fantasies, which are discovered in the reversibility of materials.
Muslin presents an elegant and imposing spirit conceived from the sober evolution of classic stripes to become designs such as the barcode, candy, hairline and pencil, revitalised using glossy and matt contrasts, with unusual placements and tone-on-tone pleated ornaments.
The scent of power also emerges through semi-hidden sheens: satins, taffeta and velvets are united and vibrate through combinations of different textures.
