"The incredible ability, that some birds have, to visually transform their body with volume and colours is my starting point. As an example, birds of paradise can hide a colourful plumage, and use this beauty display during their seduction “show”.
I translated this act of visual seduction in a series of garments for men. These garments are shirts made with different layers of textile and paper. The paper structures are becoming body ornaments that the wearer shapes around his body. The structures are suddenly showing colours and becoming voluminous just for a moment, a moment to impress." Camille Cortet
