Then, a young model emerged, her name was Olga Pantushenkova, it was her first season in Paris. She was so fragile and delicate, but embodied a strange inner strength and beauty. Her dress was a shift of mousseline, bias cut, with delicate roses on the shoulder. Olga was light as air, as pale as the snow around her, celestial in her beauty but in complete control of her own destiny.

“[how can anyone] be silly enough to think himself better than other people, because his clothes are made of finer woolen thread than theirs. After all, those fine clothes were once worn by a sheep, and they never turned it into anything better than a sheep.”

The theme of the black dress found its origin in the film The Piano. The black dress has for me the ideal mix of tradition though designed in a contemporary way, it has become a favourite. I like working from a historical, ethnical or folkloric point of view, though bringing these sensibilites out in a new and modern way. The mussels in the jewellery also refer to a scene in The Piano pulling the piano out of the sea, which is covered with mussels and sea plants as wells as a reference to Belgian art.
