Archaic Garden

So we cultivate an archaic garden where primitive joins forces with antique.

Where archaeologists decipher hieroglyphics that speak of Gods, of man and plants unknown.

Forbidden fruits and flowers bear forgotten names: Kumquat, oponce, papyrus, tuberose, rosewood.

Nestled in shadowy niches, worn mosaics hide behind twisted and dried branches of ivy. Collapsed columns and arches form a mound of worn stones, hiding fossils.


The range is whitened, stony, mineral or delicately fruity. The softness of faded, evanescent, light and serious colors.


Underwater Variation

Ebbing and flowing with the tide, we swim “under-current”.

Dive into abysses, explore the ocean depths. We discover marine flora and fauna, submerged cities, buried amphora and pots.

A mysterious world, an aquatic and amniotic bubble. A stormy summer’s day, bright with magnetic lightening, the horizon plunging into the ocean.


The range delves into the blue, and extends to an aqua green. Sea anemone pink is enhanced by inky blues and purples. Navy and brown darken the landscape. White soap bubbles refresh the saturated atmosphere.


Tropical Dramaturgy

Wild nature plays all its cards, calling on Rousseau to lure us into a game of paradise lost with all its misleading tricks.

Pretty green vines encircle us, exuberant flowers are giant to better devour us.

The beaks of multicoloured macaws pinch the cheeks of lost Janes.


The range is solar, incandescent, spicy and suffocating. Yellow singing at the top of its voice, uninhibited parrot green, the orange of Tibetan monks, the entire spectrum of reds from purple to salmon pink. Bushy brown, deep blue.


Enchanted Picnic

Technical research and reasoned ecology show their impertinent sides.

A festival of glamorous and fun materials. The dawn of artificial preciousness.


The range sets your teeth on edge. The neon colors are whitened. Jelly pink is transparent; the pastels are over-bright. The brights are on fire, tempered by reasonable grey and measured beige.


Shadowy Shores

A static place, metaphor of elsewhere. Desert of sand, desert of sea, wreckers, pirates, warriors from another era. Alternation of ambiguous shade and dulled light. They illuminate, or dissimulate, the decks of ships run ashore, rusty anchors, ragged sails, driftwood, soft-shell crabs and tortoise shells.


The range is tinged with vegetal colors. Bathed in red, boat hull; dark navy, hut; strong green, canvas. Or lightened colors, bleached by the salt, faded by the sun and the sea.

Following are the Spring Summer 2011 Themes from Lenzing:

  • Celebration
  • Abstraction
  • New Classic
  • Aquous Perleage



Coatings, pigment printing, abrasion, slashing, Embellishments – whatever evokes dynamic force adding a slightly rough itch.

New Classic

Naturally bright pigments develop into new classics. Fabrics are classic, materials the same but all elements are somewhat twisted: fibers in unusual yarn-spinning and –counts, classical weave patterns in atypical materials clashed with a curious checkered design, an embroidery where you didn’t expect it – nothing loud, just enough to make you startle .


Fabrics are slick drapery like butter or water, ghostly veiled like mist or air. Materials are expressing the beauty of energy, the comfort of floating coolness. The appearance is IN the fabric not on top of it.


Whatever treatment make surfaces glowing, radiant, intricate, enigmatic are brought into the game. Luxury fabrics in precious fibers and most excellent manufacturing are the sublime and subdued quality.
