When 2 equals 1 by Maison Michel ss17
Amour, passion and fusion: after last season’s coy flirtation, our couple is now going steady. They share everything, clothes, hats, daily worries and perilous adventures. He is a rebel at heart, she is a fearless garçonne. Inspired by Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek in Terrence Malik’s Badlands (1973), their lives are spent on the road fleeing daily reality. The collection is set in a fantasized landscape of dusty deserted Americana. A maxi fedora comes in raven straw; boaters hat don large, plum-colored borders; trilby hats are battered and worn out – all reflecting their wayward lifestyle. From grungy checkered patterns to barb wire-like mesh, textiles are treated subversively, turning these symbols of rebellion into artisanal ornamentation. As for the palette – the dawn pink, rainy greys and midnight blues- add an organic, washed-out feel.
