Bourgeois, country dweller, catholic, Marie Camille is the daughter of a Traditional French Hunter who hunts every Sunday in his land. She has many brothers and sisters and goes to church with them on Sunday morning before lunch. In her burgundy castle, the fifties are still alive.
Head full of fantasies, Marie Cam flees the decency behind her good education and aspires to live in a city and enjoy night life. By deconstructing her clothes, which too closely resembled her origins, her style became a statement of emancipation. This liberated her from the rules dictated by her parents, and Marie Cam dares to show a hint of skin.
Through this, she also desires to escape all ideas of social class and elitism through education level. She does this by going to excessive parties where diversity is frequently discussed.
Creation of a collection with second hand clothes
The bucket shape of the bag is a reference to the garden bucket of her childhood countryside.
It’s decorated by a hand-cross stitched painting. This kind of painting which depicts a forest scene is present in old countryside hunter family houses. The wood frame is rich with ornamentations from another age. It is particularly a reference to the original frame around the cross stitched painting.
Finally, the metal rings connecting the bag and the frame together offer an equestrian aesthetic.
The second bag, by the simplicity of its shape, reminds one of vintage velvet hand bags. The black velvet creates a visual link with the short dress in the same fabric.
The wood frame reinforces the vintage aesthetic of the bag and matches the bucket bag.
The transparent resin inclusion of the pollens reminds us of the cropped coat covered by various plants.
The shape of the inclusion, and its place on the flap, is a reference to the old pin that we see on old bags.
