Peasant couture


From a piece in the New York Times:

"Romanian-based French designer Philippe Guilet, who has worked with the likes of Jean-Paul Gaultier and Karl Lagerfeld, has created a collection inspired by Romania's ancient peasant traditions and modern urban jungle.The collection, which premiered at the French embassy, thrilled Romanians, leaving some in tears over the spectacle of their humble village crafts being whipped up into world-class couture."


  1. I think the original is nicer and on the original. But I'm happy for the Romanians who it made happy.
