English Version | No flash photography


There'll be no need to shine a light on what is bright as day in modern times. In this limbo between the real and the transcendent, between what is human and what is animal instinct, between truth and dream, the frontier of the forbidden - and of what is possible - vanishes to reach the divine.

In a story focused on rebirth, metamorphosis and resilience, this hybrid goddess inspired by Greek mythology symbolizes new cycles, the resurrection and the fragile link between nature and mankind. But also the link between analogue and digital, here used as a tool to explore the new codes of a techno-world applied to Fashion. Can you see the line that separates the myth from the real, the technical from the technological, the protagonist from the avatar? There no need. It doesn't matter. All rules are broken to create a out of this world experience. And to present this New Age that starts on the following pages. Creative direction by Agathe Philippart and Joana Dacheville. Photography by Eva Wang in collaboration with Creature Studio. Styling by Joana Dacheville.
