A silhouette, like a silent shout
The unspoken but proud body shakes,
The body never lies…
After « Back Yard Bird », Adeline Ziliox makes her second Couture Collection. This time, Ziliox treats the body as a showcase for our feelings, for our emotions, our soul, and the cloth, showcase itself for this body telling so many stories, lives, hopes, dreams.
These clothes, like a carapace or an armor, hide the real ego but reveal its deepness. A warrior woman. This recurrent theme is an everlasting inspiration for the designer. These women who fight daily for their freedom, for their rights, their lives. These women are from the present and the past. Powerful women who shine with their grace, their femininity and fragility.
The shapes are structured, volume, oversize shoulders, as if these women carry the entire world. The graphics design accentuates their own femininity. Texture enters the picture as a man-made fabric like neoprene is sometimes mixed with chiffon or satin.
Bold in mixing the unexpected to create her own style. Adeline Ziliox is always impassioned by motifs that she had worked on printed form. The “Under the Shell” collection gave her the opportunity to create themes through embroidery.
Autodidact, Ziliox practices intuitively, spontaneous and instinctively. Her embroidery is made in France in her workroom in Strasbourg, like all her collections. All the collection is 100% made in France.
