The jackets with their masculine cut glide over the body, the shoulders delicately suggested to soften the line. Dresses and skirts are longer; ranging from mid-knee to mid-calf — shorter at the back, longer at the front — they possess a graceful air of nonchalance. The trousers, easy on the hip, are slim and svelte at the hem to create a sleek leg-shape.
Black and white as well as pale shades of green, sky blue and pastel pink, framed by leather, knit or silk trims that outline the clothes within the overall silhouette, like precise black brush strokes. Just as a frame emphasises the radiance of the picture it encloses.
The same game of outlines recurs in the see-through PVC maxi bag, with its black and natural details; this also comes in a two-tone version or with reptile skin features. For a final neodesign touch, there is a striking necklace shaped like a collar in rigid plexiglass that repeats the black or white collection leitmotif.
