“Au bord du canal saint-martin …” walking along its banks, as visionary artists and poets, we breathe the Creole air of a new journey.
new notes vibrate in the air, a fresh metissage between European culture and sparkling Afro-Parisian community; a sea breeze transports us overseas to the French antilles, in a Caribbean sound of voluptuousness and lush beauty.
Eclectic “black” elegance, a perfect balance between tailoring and ethnic heritage; one strips oneself of western conformism and, following the beat of his percussion, seduces us with a rhythm of joy and rebirth, in contact with a nature of lush flowers and greenery.
Creole beauty, sensual and playful, fascinates with its vital force and innocent boldness. plays with fabrics and embroidery, mixes paintings and men’s stripes with flowers and multicolored jacquards. He dresses in deep, fresh and luxurious colors, combining them with indigo denim, deep dyed satins and delavè tones.
Magenta together with mauve and bright ivory. Noche and indigo tones refresh with white and sky blue notes. red flame next to the rose; sunset with the melons. aloe, butter and black recall chic atmospheres of Caribbean evenings. Thus on the banks of canal saint martin the sunset is expected as if by the ocean.
“Je rêve d’un soire rouge d’or, et d’un lougre hindou qui s’endort:
– siffle la brize … et toi! Creole “
(sur le canal saint-martin glisse, paul – jean toulet 1867–1920).
