Now, everyone begins to speak very loudly.For me, it’s important to go further after all the projects that I’ve done, the fabrics, the prints, the brocades, and the patchwork … but to go even further.For me, the cuts were very important, to work them into the very simple and very sculpted fabrics.This is an inspiration from a tribe from Nigeria, and they create very dynamic sculptures with very large arms, and so yes, it’s a very sculpted form. That was an inspiration.We wanted a contrast between the very rigid and colourful fabrics, and very plain fabrics with an almost home tailored style.
