SHOW: Pierre Antoine Vettorello Spring Summer 2013

The French designer Pierre Antoine Vettorello will present his Spring Summer 2013 collection at RA Paris at an intimate salon presentation featuring a live harpist performance. Pierre's exquisite handmade garments are imbued with a unique ethnic mythology, and characterised by the use of exotic natural materials traditionally used in arts and crafts. His heritage from the Ivory Coast can be seen in his celebration of feminine power, achieved through a daring cut and bold use of colour and pattern. In particular, the Spring Summer 2013 collection references an unexpected melange of African and Celtic cultures, including Bassari headpieces from Senegal, and the Kuba textiles from Congo which are translated into knitwear. A constant strength in Pierre's collections are his artisanal hats and the intricate way that he combines body jewellery with garments, using techniques such as hand-knitting, beading, hand-painted fabrics and embroidery featuring glass, feathers, wood and precious stones. 8pm Wednesday 26th September at RA Paris, 14 rue de la Corderie, 75003 Paris (métro Temple) To request a buyer invitation: +32 (0) 474 311 865 / To request a press invitation: /
