"This season I had an image in my mind of a woman on a journey across a landscape - a symbolic
wanderer. The idea came from three very different references. There is a series of beautiful black
and white photography by Hashimoto Shoko from the 1970s of a group of Goze. They were blind
women musicians who travelled from town to town in Japan, playing their music. The three
women in his photos really inspired me. Then I was also looking at James Turrell’s installations,
that glow and otherworldly feeling, which I really wanted to bring into the colours this season, the
electric pink and glaring green.

And I was thinking too about summer nights by the sea in Denmark, the moon rising and the
liquid blue ocean. There’s a painting by P. S. Krøyer of two women walking on the beach of
Skagen at the top of Jutland. They are in beautiful white dresses but there’s a feeling of melancholy
too – I think the collection has that melancholy, in the black and white.”
