Scarlett’s Drapes

artwork2An exciting character, full of strength and determination, in a unique moment in cinema history, is the starting point towards making the Le Petit Indigent pieces.

Symbol of a class  gone with the wind, heavy velvet drapes of silk and cotton, with elaborated tassels, are interpreted as sport clothing through a juxtaposition of textures and patterns apparently antithetical.

Le Petit Indigent  invites you in the story  Scarlett’s Drapes,

a Capsule Collection that reinterprets a modern classic, the hoodie, in the most seductive texture, velvet.

“I have a heart to be stabbed in or shot in, I have no doubt,’ said Estella, ‘and, of course, if it ceased to beat I should cease to be. But you know what I mean. I have no softness there, no—sympathy—sentiment—nonsense.”

What Would Claire wear? The Breakfast Club

“We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all”200I was 13 the first time I saw  The Breakfast Club  and not very excited to watch an old movie.

At that time I was fascinated by silent comedy movies, some Technicolor oldies, but had no real interest in  recent history.

It was during a sleepover at a friend’s house and she suggested we watch this movie.

Our friendship was an unlikely one, as I was more of the Princess Type meets The Criminal and she was more like  The Basket Case meets The Brain.tumblr_n1f9lay2p41rv7cdvo2_500This movie taught me the most important social rule ever:

“You see us as you want to see us—in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain…and an athlete…and a basket case…a princess…and a criminal. Does that answer your question?”

I think is very easy, especially for teenagers, to reject people that are different from them. Everything is so extreme at that age; If you listen to punk, you need to wear this and that, and you also need to be part of a punk group, so that you would be allowed to dress in that way and many, many, idiotic rules (teenagers are assholes).tumblr_ma8v474bmu1qg39ewo1_500We are not that blend, one-sided people, but it seems that those who are, still carry this type of prejudice in their adulthood, judging and discriminating people that are not like them.

For those people, from a Punk listening Princess, F you and…originalLet’s get to some serious stuff : What would Claire wear? 

I am always imagining my favorite characters and icons in whatever new stuff comes down the runway.  

I wanted to create a more current look for Claire, and also a version that is even closer to my aesthetic, so here it goes:

  1. H&M angora sweater :

hm_angora2. H&M Glossy Skirt:hm_patent_skirt3. Miu Miu SS 2014 Mary Jane embellished shoes ( worn with some girly ankle socks) :

Vintage Levi’s Denim Jacket ( from her new “criminal” boyfriend ) :levis_denim_jacketrs_500x260-150213105657-giphy_1giphyHave a fun weekend and if you haven’t seen The Breakfast Club yet, you better get to it.

And don’t you forget we’re all pretty bizarre. XOXOgiphy1

Lovers & Dreamers: A Molecule Night in The Secret Garden

“We were Dreamers, we found our way, we found our place, we found our Lovers  and together we’re not afraid to dream our lives away.”5
 And that’s how Molecule-F entered its sixth year of making dreams come true, of selecting quality and design from the Romanian Fashion Scene, and along them, creating an Image for the Eastern European Design.inviteWith a personalised invitation (that’s me in the center), Molecule-F set the theme:    Lovers and Dreamers.
As the creator of Le Petit Indigent, I am proud to be part of the Molecule-F Family.
 
Molecule-F‘s Birthday was set in the most beautiful garden, seeming out of a Fragonard painting.8468547922_8b6de80cae_b23.jpg1.jpgI am wearing a Moschino t-shirt, Andrei Dudau trousers, Alexandr Nicolai Paris bracelet and Underground London creepers.

“An Image From A Past Life”

IMG_0174I.
“Wilt thou forget the happy hours
Which we buried in Love’s sweet bowers,
Heaping over their corpses cold
Blossoms and leaves, instead of mould?
Blossoms which were the joys that fell,
And leaves, the hopes that yet remain.”IMG_0176IMG_0184II.
“Forget the dead, the past? Oh, yet
There are ghosts that may take revenge for it,
Memories that make the heart a tomb,
Regrets which glide through the spirit’s gloom,
And with ghastly whispers tell
That joy, once lost, is pain.”

(Time Long Past – Poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley)IMG_0181IMG_0492IMG_0192I wish sometimes I could go back, back to all those wonderful memories I’ve never had.

I love pedaling on my tall, chopper  Pegasus bike and  stretch my neck way out and breathe in all the architecture, colors and shattered pieces of our History. I hope sometime Society will realize the importance of Beauty in everyday life.

I’m wearing : 70’s vintage shirt and scarf, Le Petit Indigent suede shorts, Paul Smith sneakers, Louis Vuitton Chantilly bag, 70’s vintage shades and email bracelet.

“It’s very difficult to keep the line between the past and the present. You know what I mean? It’s awfully difficult.” (Edith ‘Little Edie’ Bouvier Beale)
