This collection is an ode to womenkind and her multiple facets, from her light to her essence. The first part, Valley of the Sun, explores an insouciant sensuality that evokes the early days of summer and the beach. These are timeless Maison Michel pieces , revised with a summer vibe.Reinvented with all-over prints on the ribbon, as if burnt by the heat on both the exterior and interior. The irregular aspect adds an organic touch that transforms the letters into a pattern. To straw faded by the sun, cotton as light as air, waterproof nylon with a denim effect that can be rolled up and put in a pocket, to linen on felt and crochet, a summery and gently subversive note is added.
Each piece suggests the solar energy of a woman who refuses oppression. The second part, La Nouvelle Eve, leans towards a teenage candour, it’s an invitation to plunge into ones own memories of Lolita. Straw, polka dot silk and linen ribbon are combined with a daisy motif and leather suede interlinked with a chain, all with a seventies effect. Breezy straws and picnic cloth prints swathe little bucket hats with a wrap-around finish. The third part, Sophistication-Séduction, introduces a certain sagesse, a woman at ease, who knows herself. This shimmering of a laminated and gold effect is mixed with a black straw that highlights the endlessly modernised savoir-faire of the House and is reminiscent of a sunset on a summer’s evening. Turbans and headbands made from shape-memory taffeta render each piece malleable, giving everyone the chance to appropriate it. A set of badges also comes with each hat. Highlighting the empowerment of those who wear these pieces, they play with and thwart the codes of chic and femininity.
