SUMMERWINTER was born after my Autumn inspired show at colette in Paris, the natural progression was to explore other seasons. I started observe the dance between the northern and southern hemispheres, and how opposites attract. I love the idea that one can not exist without the other. So in the end, it was the idea of all things opposite, and how they are also the same that inspired me... Black and white.
For this show I took a minimalist approach, which was inspired by my husband. I have always been about color, but in this show I kept it black, white, and grey. Along with my sewn creatures, I created a limited edition Ombré dyed scarf made especially for the show, which symbolizes black and white, becoming one; grey.
The entire show centers around a love story between Summer and Winter. Even though they live on opposite sides of the world, they fall in love, and continue their seasonal dance of love for eternity.
