I think that when I set out to do this collection, I thought about going back to school and leaves falling; the yellows, the oranges, the greens, the certain types of reds from the leaves and black at night. It is funny how tradition becomes new again. Speaking about tradition, I really wanted to create this environment and return clothes back to clothes, not news and that is why we created such an intimate environment. We pushed all the ceilings down really low and we brought everyone really close together so it was intimate. You didn’t need your social media phone any more; it was right there you could actually touch and feel the energy and everything was in the present.I always think about the character; the woman, and she is quite simply complex, so in every collection there has to be a complex side and then there has to be a simple naïve side and I reversed it this season. When you think about embroideries they are very complex and rich but I wanted actually the day clothes to be richer and you saw the progression in the collection, it came back to the embroideries, there was a very simple sequence. Chico leaves were falling almost poetic and things cut out and holes and even the shapes are so simple. Music of the show, (donot reuse for more than 7 days after the show)
