About a material that is produced/used worldwide and illusions
In January 2009 on aura tout vu presented the new spring/summer 2009 couture, accessories (sunglasses), bag and shoe collections at their studio in Paris.
Alongside to bright colored pieces in violet, red, pink, blue, green with psychedelic Paisley prints for the Mediterranean 70ies look, the main focus of the summer couture collection is inspired by the fragility and the colors (blue and white) of porcelain from the times of Louis XV, Madame de Pompadour, Marco Polo, King-te-Chen (the Chinese Ming blue-and-white porcelain was produced in Jingdezhen; the Ming dynasty ruled in China from 1368 to 1644), Meissen (the European porcelain was developed from 1708 by Ehrenfried Walther von Tschirnhaus en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meissen_porcelain)...
For on aura tout vu, the story of couture and porcelain is about fragility and vulnerability which comes from a delicate material that can burst easily, and in the same time the collection is about powder in the sense of "to throw dust in someone’s eyes", to illusion other people. You will find on the white/blue dresses broken porcelain applications, draperies which re-form the Rokoko Cul de Paris, crocodile embossed leather belts with porcelain cameo on torero like trousers...
