What many may not know is that the Minautor is from a royal and very vengeful bloodline. Afterall his first cousins are the Greek Queen known as Phaedra and the scorned Princess Madea, who is of course the most dangerous femme fatale of literary compositions ! Maria Aristidou has taken in this cultural heritage of mythology and transfigured it into the physical forms we find in her new collection for Spring/Summer 2017. Her metallic yarns are used in the knitwear.
Through her work for Fall Winter 2016/17 the Chinese couturier Lan Yu demonstrates what it takes to transpose a gentle whisper into physical form. An undeniable great beauty in her own right, Lan Yu understands the importance of infusing subtlety and softness into her work. This is the reason for which she allowed herself to be greatly affected by the paper cutting skill of the artist Gao Fenglian.
