Urban Amazon
Fall/Winter 1994/1995

First collection, entirely presented to the press and to buyers in March 1994, in a flat (boulevard de Strasbourg in Paris) at Barnabé’s.

It evokes my childhood, horse-riding, clothes going baggy at the knees and elbows; a tacking that takes articulations into account above all. Pure lines. ‘Riding hats’. Boots with worn leather strips, matted Shetlands jumpers with a black overcast cross, shirts with tiny backs, long and narrow sleeves. Shirts, jackets, coats slit to the waist. ‘Low waist’ sailor trousers and mini-skirts.

A sharp wardrobe, a rider become urban, ‘A Ma Zone Urbaine’. Creation of the ‘Be an Elf Panoply’ concept for a Manga night-clubber Parisian.

The panoply is composed of a short-sleeved cotton t-shirt in a range of three colours (blue, pink and pale-green) with the silkscreen print of a female centaur on it, with a pair of spangled cardboard ear prostheses designed by Topolino.

The collection was bought by Bergdorf Goodman, and presented in the showcases of his New York department store.
