The Coppélia Pique Ready-to-wear Autumn-Winter 2016/2017 collection celebrates the universal myth of unrequited love in a modern Renaissance. The woman lover is standing in a pictorial composition among young patrician ladies, warrior princesses and dragons.
This collection epitomizes Baudelaire’s poem “The Death of Lovers” and reveals the existing contradiction in the modern woman torn, in a world of passion, light games and mirror effects, between androgyny and femininity.
