A long and elegant pencil skirt , slit at the back. The encounter between an artisanal Faso dan fani from Burkina Faso and the geometric prints of a cotton bed sheet from the 80s.

It was by composing this range of fabrics with lively patterns and joyful colors that I was inspired to create this unique piece. And before having the honor of reworking these beautiful fabrics in my studio, I spent years collecting and studying the fabrics and the stories they tell. This deep interest in combining textiles of all kinds is at the heart of my creative process.

The beautiful *ikat fabric with green stripes that stands out on the front of the skirt is an artisanal weaving of cotton called Faso dan Fani or "woven loincloth". It was made in the Gonghin district of Ouagadougou, in Burkina Faso, by an artisan weaver named Lydie Nikiéma who makes these marvels from her family courtyard.

The geometric patterns placed on the sides come from a cotton upholstery fabric from the 80s, an explosive and fabulous era that I particularly like in terms of style! The dynamic of intersecting diagonals and verticals gives a kaleidoscopic effect to the painting.

On the back, the enigmatic looks of feline creatures seeming to come from another planet never leave our eyes.

The cut of the model is rather adjusted and close to the body, which has the effect of lengthening the silhouette and highlighting the curves of the body. For a harmonious fall and optimal comfort, I lined the fabrics with a finer and lighter cotton. Its pretty slit cutout at the back allows you to walk and move freely. It can easily be worn with a crop top or a wrap top from my collection, flat sandals or even high heels.

Made with great care and finesse, this unique piece, entirely handmade , required twelve hours of work, from researching the fabrics, through the composition of the patchwork to the manufacturing stages.
