#SuzyPFW: Olympia Le-Tan — An Ode To Tokyo

The designer's playful and pretty accessories get the Japanese touch

14 Октября 2015


"Things Change, that's life — or as they say so beautifully in Japanese: 'Mono no aware'," said Olympia Le-Tan, to sum up the awareness of impermanence in Japanese culture.

Where else but the Palais de Tokyo in Paris could the designer, famed for her embroidered "book" handbags, have staged her show?

The models stepped out in their short skirts and colourful hose, blouses and bags, decorated with patterns that looked familiar: Olympia had taken elements of Tokyo's famed Hotel Okura, whose planned demolition left her "devastated". The hotel's memorable elevator doors inspired one set of designs.

Other ideas came from the work of Noboyushi Araki, his Polaroids transferred to print by Olympia's artist father, Pierre Le-Tan. The Japanese artist's signature bondage ropes were beaded on to dresses.

There is now an Olympia Le-Tan shop in Paris — small, cute or, as the young Japanese girls would say, "kawaii". "I wanted a shop the was pink all over, that would kind of look like a doll house," Olympia said of the interior, designed by her father, Pierre. He decorated the walls with trompe l'oeil monogrammed pink fabric and turned his drawings into carpets, while the polished brass racks are by Marc Newson of Apple.

Housed in the corner of the Passage des Deux Pavillons near the Palais Royal, next season will offer a chance to see the Japanese references with a chic Paris touch.
