How does it feel for you being selected for this year’s edition of Hyeres?
I was very happy to receive the phone call, though I did not expect to make it to the finals. I feel honored to be here.
How would you describe Hyeres in three words?
A great opportunity to meet many important people from the industry, it has a laid back environment that combines business and pleasure and in a way it feels like being back to school. Of course, there is the jury at the end of the shows, which adds a bit of stress.
What has been your favorite part of the process so far?
Rethinking the collection, going back to things I left on the side for a while. I was an opportunity for me to re-think women, as I am a menswear designer.
What was the women’s garment you created for Chloe about?
A sophisticated by nature, confident yet simple. The clothes featured all sorts of details.
In three words , what is your collection about?
Nostalgia, blurry memories and emotions.
