In Marrakech, the Yves Saint Laurent museum is an architectural jewel which recalls the weft of a fabric. It has inspired MANSOUR, a collection of lines, volumes and shapes. Geometric shapes and scrolls are revealed by the depth and the light, sculpted with metallic inks. MANSOUR is a structured collection which blends architecture with“haute couture”.
A lavish collection, Louxor uses light as an adornment. In 1921, the Louxor, a cinema with a neo-Egyptian facade was inaugurated in Paris. The rules of Ancient Egypt fascinated Art Decor artists at the time, a century later they have inspired Casamance to create this lavish collection of wallcoverings. Majestic volume, graceful lacing, drawn between light and shade. Patterns withclear lines and pared-back shapes catch the light. The opulence and richness is portrayed through the depth of colour, flashes of precious metals, gold, copperor silver.
At night, water acquires intense tones and is magnified by the brightness of the light. On a cotton satin, a sculpted embroidery represents the Trevi Fountain at dusk. From Fellinis unforgettable scene to the Fendi haute couture fashion show in front of the famous fountain, the fabric awakens the memory of a midnight dip in an evening gown. Embroidery on piece-dyed cotton satin.
