Pierre-François Valette, founder and artistic director of a start-up fashion label, shared the ideas behind the key images of his new collection.
How would you describe your new Fall-Winter 2021 collection?
The silhouette of Valette embodies allure: a state of mind and eternal value. I imagined sharp and sophisticated tailoring with a modern attitude. Something timeless. Everything that relates to freedom, innocence, and pride.
Which look or piece best reflects the spirit of the season?
Look 11 of the Fall-Winter 2021 collection reflects the spirit of this season. It’s a bold red suit, with graphic green lines, and ‘cool’ purple accents. The scarf covers the whole look like an imaginary wave, and the colourful T-shirt embodies the uplifting attitude of the collection.
What kind of message did you want to convey this collection?
This collection celebrates modernity, the future, and optimism in an uncertain time -“Dandy is trendy.”
