I have been very self-indulgent with the last four outfit posts, but now it's time for something a little different!
I must say, watching all of the Hyeres Festival previews posted on A Shaded View on Fashion has made me extremely excited to see what's in store for this year. Just browsing through the promo shots of the collections provided an instant visual appeal for me. Many of the pieces are soft and ethereal, very inspiring and very timely for the coming season.
Inspiration ranges from the forces of the wind, to Persian poetry, to aviation, archeology, film noir, and kaleidoscopes. Each reference seems intruiging and I can't wait to see more of how each is translated into the clothes. I am particularly looking forward to seeing Melody Deldjou Fard's sheer pieces which "evoke human organs", Anaïs Dougnac's feathered boots, and Harald Lunde Helgesen's exploration with colour and gradients, amongst other fascinating details.
The festival starts on Friday. It would be a dream to be there in person!
