It’s a mix, as if I’d imagined snow in India.The exotic element is seen on the draped clothing, kind of like saris, although they aren’t saris, there are even jackets which wrap around like that.The puffa jackets, the fringed shawls, the padded, mattress-like silhouettes, and sometimes clothes which appear like jumpers, but in fact are a kind of embossing made with muslin or organza which makes it swell, giving the impression of an Irish or a cable-knit sweater. In truth they are deceptive.As for the materials, there are those which are particularly special to me, in fact the velvet, smooth velvet but sometimes dévoré velvet. This is a seersucker with flowers, but which at the end of the day, is evocative of snow. So, it’s kind of that idea. This is also couture.Rossy de Palma & Blanca Li: We love, we love it, we love it. We love it a lot. We cannot wait to see the beauties that he’s made!Iris Mittenaere: He chose me because I’m Miss France, he was with me during my year competing for Miss Universe and that’s kind of the logic behind it. We ask ourselves how he had those ideas, and that’s what’s impressive. It’s that actually everything put together is magical. That’s where we can see the genius.Music of the show (only to be used in the context of the show, under the protection of the right to information)
