RAVEL’S BOLERO

If I should think of some kind of music to compare to my idea of fashion that is Ravel’s Bolero.

It has in fact a core melody, that is strong and well-defined – a style, if  we want to use fashion-words. In the fashion universe it is like an evergreen piece (think everything Chanel for instance!) , that will forever be worn over and over again.

But then, time pass by and fashion evolves and enriches itself adding elements, shapes, colours, materials, fabrics, patterns. I see exactly this when I listen to the development of the Bolero: I see elements in the shape of the sounds produced by all musical instruments, that little by little are incorporated to create something always different, bolder and ever-changing.
