“I’m celebrating this comeback with something very dark,” he says.

“I took a huge blow to myself after this period of COVID-19. […] I almost closed my house,” he admits.

The theme of the collection is “Light in the midst of nothingness. You can feel it in the embroidery and textures. The goal is to find the light that is in the darkness.”

After two years of absence and virtual experiences, he did not hide his emotions to find the physical scene.

“If a girl falls she falls and everyone sees. In the movie, if she falls, if there is a problem with the dress, you re-cut it and reshoot,” he says while wearing models in dizzy heels.

“I’m so happy to be back on the podium, and at the same time, it’s as if I forgot to ride my bike, like I’ve lost all my sewing habits.” “It puts you at risk, but it’s what makes you relearn your job,” says the stylist.

The music is sexy, the girls, who wear long dresses sculpted in figures, are a little strange with their shaggy hair and dark green lipstick.

Manta rays and jellyfish evoke the colors and elements of some dresses to evoke fascination and awe.

“It’s an anti-extremist group,” he declared, arguing that the modesty of dress brought about by the #metoo movement was also part of the extremism.

“Showing the flesh of our time is to be vulnerable. And to be vulnerable is the most beautiful thing that can happen to us.”
