Denis Gagnon tells us that his Spring/Summer 2011 collection is inspired by “geometric forms, pure and rich lines, and sumptuous fabrics. Such as a cubist artist, the designer juggles with dualities and diametrically opposed dimensions in order to create a new universe where differences rule. Nature and urbanism are brilliantly intertwined and exploited, paying tribute to futuristic and organic architecture. The structured and fluid silhouettes are punctuated by metallic chains, clasps and fringes. The skins and jersey are delicately weakened, giving them an innovative and surprising appeal.”
