Paris Haute Couture/La Metamorphose in Chateau Royal d’Amboise

Home|New Collections|Paris Haute Couture/La Metamorphose in Chateau Royal d’Amboise

The new collection of La Métamorphose explores the hidden and mysterious nature of women and is inspired by the “Balsamic moon”- this suspended moment in the moon cycle which corresponds to the “Dreamtime”. It is synonymous with the Origin of the World in the culture of the Australian aborigines.

The “Balsamic Moon” is the moon of the prophets and prophetesses, and has the power to stimulate the imagination. This moon reveals a particular vision of the cycle to come. This visionary phase requires the opening of the mind channels and its limits, to allow a new creation to emerge. This phase is asking us to surrender to the power of the universe whose dream springs from the dark, through sketches, and canvasses, defining the outlines of new possibilities.




The designers Ewa and Margaret, who are very attached to French culture, have chosen the Royal Castle of  Amboise as the theater for their new collection.

There are 15 looks playing between the transparency and lightness of tulles, embroidered with pearls, the fluidity of silk and chiffon, and lace. Also, the shimmering caress of the velvet of a high waist tuxedo suit sprinkled with a few spikes of sequins. The embroidered masks underline the smiles of the tinted lips, a reminder, if it were necessary, of our particular nowadays reality.

It should be noted that all of the fabrics are “Made in France”, and part of the collection has been produced in French ateliers.
