A voluptuous icon of surrealism thanks to Dali, the famous Lips sofa is reinterpreted draped in burgundy taffeta. Mermaid gowns in beige tulle embroidered with cabochons or fringes of golden sequins emphasizing necklines claim the music hall spirit. La Dolce Vita is radicalized with tuxedos enhanced with feathers. Transparencies of soft pink tulle sprinkled with crystals and extravagant embroidery complete this dreamlike and burlesque vision. Maxi dresses in crumpled tulle reveal the audacity of this first muse of glamour.A sulfurous diva without self-censorship and an unbridled style.
