chenilles & papillons


This set is called “21 Janvier” in the Chenilles et Papillons website. And I TOTALLY LOVE IT. Maybe it’s my dark soul with my inherent appreciation of black, the elegant but unusual combinations of black, teal and black or the fact that this could be part of a Tim Burton film set in the 1790s.

I don’t know how to express the love I feel for this project/enterprise/whatever-the-fuck-this-dude-does: the design is interesting even for the contemporary eye, the colours are ALWAYS on point, the and the colour schemes are balanced and limited, the craftsmanship behind each garment is mindblowing and EACH AND EVERY SINGLE ACCESSORY IS PERFECT.

And if that’s not enough, the hair, makeup and photography could be from an 18th century version of Vogue.

In resume: I LOVE DRAGOS MOLDOVEANU AND I WANNA DO STUFF LIKE THIS WHEN I GROW UP (ignore the fact that I’m already a grown up).

Designs are all by Dragos Moldoveanu from Chenilles et Papillons, photos by Corinne Mariaud.
