Passion and talent for a contemporary flair brand Célestine by Zoé.
A short description of your collection.
For this F/W season I developed two new collections : the Winter Marine, inspired by mysterious oceans during the winter time, mixing up organic shapes and different textures ; the Skin Collection, a combination of different materials and texture, the finest Italian leather together with the nordic design.
What inspires you?
The inspiration comes years ago, across Belgium and Rome, when I started to experiment prototypes. The strong influence of my architectural background together with passion for nature, guided me toward the launch of this project.
Your style in three words.
Minimal, feminine, multicultural.
Detail makes a difference... What’s yours?
The Italian sensibility combined with the Belgian approach.
Which object do you wish to design?
My dream is a jewellery made of white and thin pottery , mixed up with matt and bright finish.
If your brand was a song?
« At Last » by Etta James or « Feeling good » by Nina Simone. Soul and blues.
