Discovered on Instagram, the silhouettes of Charles de Vilmorin have created a visual explosion. Like a psychedelic trip, they plunge us into an ocean of colors in movement, dreamlike and whimsical. In a few photos, he has conquered the fashion planet. Surreal faces, surrealistic, multicolored flowers and hearts sewn or painted on XXL unisex jackets, and coats worn on printed leggings bring out a universe in the crossroads between Alice in Wonderland and Guns ‘N’ Roses. His theatrical aesthetic reflects a sense of dramaturgy that reminds us of John Galliano’s Dior years, combined with the extravagance of the creations of Kansai Yamamoto, a great master of Japanese fashion who recently passed away.
With its oversized and conquering silhouettes, Vilmorin’s collection is a real virtual show that transports us to a free and fantastic world, rich in references and inspirations: Niki de Saint Phalle, Klimt, Chagall and Odilon Redon are among the artists who have inspired this young man at the pace of Yves Saint Laurent. His clothes, beyond their aesthetics and strong identity, carry a message, like an ode to love, to tolerance and openness: “These faces represent ageless beings, without gender, without origin, simply beings who love and kiss each other. I think that today we are a generation that is tending more and more towards this opening. These faces represent the total freedom to be the way we want to be. The colors and volumes come from a desire for light, a desire to have, and to be farsighted, to shout out this freedom through clothing and exuberance.”
