With only few short days to go before the Atelier's NYFW Presentation of "The Fellini Files" SS2017 Collection it is my great pleasure to introduce to you our official partner Repetto Paris - a brand I have been in love with for as long as I have been in love with Ballet itself (which is, really, forever). Going beyond the beauty of classical ballet, Repetto aims to highlight authentic moments of grace. Everything about Repetto spells beauty, freedom of movement represented in the most luxurious ballet wear one can possibly imaging. And even if you have absolutely nothing to do with ballet, I promise you will fall in love with one of the Repetto's signature ballet flats. In 1947, upon her son Roland Petit’s suggestion, Rose Repetto designed her first ballet shoes in her workshop at 22 rue de la Paix, a stone’s throw from Opera Garnier. Her success was immediate.
In 1956, Brigitte Bardot immortalized the red pair of Cendrillons specially designed for her in 'Et Dieu créa la femme', a famous film directed by Roger Vadim. She was an excellent ballerina and confided to Rose Repetto that she wished to wear a pair of shoes in town as comfortable as her soft ballet shoes. The first 'stiched and returned' pair was designed in a sensual carmine red. Very feminine as they subtly unveil the beginning of the toes, the first Mythics still embody the incandescent personality of the film star. I invite you to visit Repetto's official website at www.repetto.com to see an amazing Collection of fabulous things. :-)
When preparing this announcement, I decided to pair up Repetto's beautiful image with one of my new designs from SS2017 Collection - a complete over face mask covered in tiny, handmade silk and velvet flowers. I had so much fun creating this piece! :-) It reminded me of everything happy and light, infused with color and joy...Sending much love your way! Stay tuned for upcoming coverage of "The Fellini Files" SS2017 NYFW Presentation. 7 days to go!
