Designer: Pierre Henry BorAtmosphere: After having won the TV competition, Project Fashion, the young French designer could count on his mentor Roland Mouret to guide him after having made the choice to try his luck in America. Noticed by well-known LA stylists, he was invited to come and present during New York Fashion week. Collection: The golden buttons that he creates himself became a point of reference in this collection in which the designer dismantles and rebuilds wardrobe basics. The shirt in the perfect example: bare shoulders or asymmetric, with ultra-long sleeves it’s worn as a dress. A bustier with a wavy hem, all simply paired with loose navy trousers. To note: the importance of material with the desire to be cruelty free as seen through a playful, double effect faux leather skirt Interview Pierre Henry Bor :We find ourselves here in New York because we had a showroom in LA with the famous American stylist Monica Rose, which resulted in a second show-room in LA as we started to become known in the United States and so the fashion gallery contacted us and asked us if we’d be interested? We said obviously because whilst we’d had other offers for fashion weeks this one interested us the most. When I did the competition, Roland Mouret was one of my mentors and he told me that the only thing that Americans can never have except design, is to be French. So for us, it was important that we were there, that we show new French designers that we can represent France abroad. My clothes are always a mix between street culture and French luxury. Street culture really comes from the United States and from New York so it really blends perfectly.The first inspiration for the show was the madness of the world in which we live- where everything is happing quickly, we must dress quickly and so that’s why we find patches of buttons that are completely crazy, that was the first inspiration, then after we had this fragility of childhood that we tried to recall. This is why we have golden buttons, like the flower necklaces we wore, but in fact each garment is a reinterpretation.
