Why this concept, it was your approach?
This concept was born from direct contact and interaction with my clients. I created several years cloakroom of timeless pieces that are sold in the workshop and during ephemeral presentations called “fittings” in galleries, showroom, artist studios in Paris and New York. special moments around the pleasure of discovering new parts, and bring together people who like to exchange around clothing.
Clients tell me never leave the road and weekend without taking more of my clothes because they reassure them and make them beautiful … So I decided to create a dedicated locker rooms of the trip.
Clothes that are transformed by use and which fall not to offend, in a specific case the cabin bag size. This first range Nomad Cloakroom, presented at the Elzevir Gallery consists of 9 pieces, which cover the range do not exceed the weight of 2600 gr.
Parts for creating several silhouettes to suit your needs and uses. In the plane, business appointment , lunch with a friend, pause at the hotel pool , city tour and meet friends on the terrace, chic dinner and gala evening …
