Simple lines, delicate fabrics, lace. Pleats and folds like wings with solid colors. Hexa is going for simplicity in palette mixed with a complicated design. Cut-outs and intricate volumes that play with volumes and movement. The collection was inspired by the movie « Jane Eyre ».
The collection was shown at the Lycée Henri IV at the Spring Summer 2013 fashion week in Paris, a beautiful building in old Paris just behind the Pantheon.
I was glad to go there, as I hadn’t been there since I saw Luis Buchinho a few seasons ago, and I really like the space; with all the ancient bookshelves behind the seats set out for the audience. This seems like it is normally a reading room library. The Hexa collection seemed like a fragile ephemeral form of expression amongst all those formidable pages of learned scholars, and the contrast pleased me greatly.
