La Dame En Noir

A collection inspired by the shadows cast by the night time blanket and an encounter with the woman wearing it.

During travels, Paton encountered a woman in an atmospheric hidden alley in Kyoto. A quiet, elegant woman who despite her mystery and allure hiding in the crowd could not help but stand out. Like André Breton’s obsession after encountering the leading lady in his 1928 novel, “Nadja”. The collection stems from a dark palette but is executed with a romantic and feminine edge, an attempt to recall the woman in her finery.
