The first time was during a ‘catwalk-concert’ event. We have been told, it was love at first sight. A microscope of positive, unexpected energy.
Then Summer arrived. Sarambade decided it was the right time to create along with friend Clotilde, a capsule collection of swimming suites. They gathered thinking about composers, colors and finally created a glittering patchwork. Clotilde, in the meanwhile, with wise and expert hands, got thrilled by the challenge of this crazy experiment.
Four models, four composers: Amadeus, Ludwig, Franz and George. Amadeus (W.A. Mozart) A prodigious young man born from music itself and surrounded by delicate, esoteric fantasies: an alien born on the Earth by mistake, pushed to the Olympus of the gods at the speed of light, W.A. Mozart drops pages of colorful beauty from the top of the mountain where he resides.
Ludwig (L. Van Beethoven) Always struggling with himself and with the world, fighting his father’s alcoholism and his own solitude and deafness, what a bitter trick for a musician. Always scared of not being up to his muse, he spends hours playing the piano and composing music every single day of his life.
Franz (Franz Liszt) An educated, charming Hungarian, Liszt lives with no regrets. He loves women and life, dense and complex music that is impossible to play. Surrounded by luxury, he leaves this world in the clothes of an abbot, but of course, just for a matter of convenience.
Last but not least George (G. Gershwin), an American Mozart. They live the same number of years and they share the same prolific creativity. Well settled in the New York society, he lives between glamorous luxury and city parties. He loves the city and everything that is modern and futuristic. His mind always open to changes, he is not scared of following his inspirations, even when the result is perceived as weird.
Defined atmospheres, sparks of creative happiness mixed with great torments. Allegro ma non troppo. A slightly ambiguous indication of time that is often hard to interpret unless the key is made of simple and rigorous, yet always sensual and feminine lines. Tops to wear at night as well as on the beach, coulotte with a retro flavor and one-piece swimming costumes underline hips and waist. Wide, round bath robe complete the look in a versatile way by turning into skirts, light mantels and mini dresses according to the need and respecting Clotilde’s traditional transformation which is not just a fashion style, but a real life style. All over stamped runner shorts and tops dedicated to the face of one’s favorite genius complete the collection. Everything is stamped on eco system sensitive lycra.
