“This particular moment of rebirth calls for light and joy. In the unique setting of the Hôtel de Boisgelin, the building that houses the Italian Embassy in Paris, I am presenting a collection of dream-like gowns that celebrate femininity and kindness. Luminosity is the quality I wanted to capture in the iridescent fabrics, in the moving and dancing shapes, in the embroideries that look like drops of water. These creations are weightless, in both their colours and silhouettes, hovering breathtakingly. The rooms of the Embassy – sumptuous yet unassuming – are the perfect setting to amplify the message, and to represent my close ties to France: a sense of togetherness that has never been so necessary as it is today”.
