Designer: Tsemaye Binitie
Selections from the A/W 2012 Collection - ’28 Faubourg Saint Honore’
“The name comes from the old address of couturier Alix Gres whose work through an exhibition in Paris served as the starting point in Tsemaye’s research. This season the girl is a little darker and tougher. Tsemaye looked at the contrast between masculine and feminine; hard and soft; sheer and opaque; black and white; applying and cutting away. Wanting to give a very tightly edited range of dresses and separates, the collection features only four colours - white, black, nude, and purple with a central focus within the collection on multi-panelled pieces. ”
