The sun is back, nature is budding, and we are ready for a METAMORPHOSIS (our season’s theme ;-)
...so let’s open up to new ways of working together, sharing our values, learning from each other and having fun all at once!
invited on the 'Pathfinders' trend space
TOHU-BOHU is a graphic and textile creation duo formed by Lysandre Graebling and Lucile Bonnaud.
Their universe is expressed through the creation of fashion and interior design prints, but also through embroidery, scenography, and even the conception and running of graphic workshops for children (Musee de Poche, Centre Pompidou...) Together, they have created a poetic and naive art-like world combining delicacy and dreams.
For the Pathfinder trend, they have imagined an extraordinary herbarium mixing dried, embroidered and drawn vegetation, in the manner of a botanical chart.
It is a tribute to slowness, to those moments in childhood dedicated to the observation of nature, to the pleasure of collecting things and to the slow learning of ancestral techniques. A way to illustrate children's instinctive capacity to contemplate the world and to live at a rhythm which, increasingly, inspires their elders.
invited on the 'Fantasia' trend space
For more than 10 years ELSA DRAY-FARGES has developed a protean body of work made of colorful and joyful drawings and volumes tinged with a certain melancholy. She creates papier mache sculptures and bespoke installations for window displays and events in a lively way that is always profoundly connected to the art of storytelling.
Imaginary landscapes, floating villages, extraordinary animal masks, her sculptures and drawings burst with colors and fantasy and communicate an instantaneous joy.
Her clients are from diverse and varied backgrounds that include fashion (Hermès, Bonpoint, Tommy Hilfiger, Aesics), interior design (Anne-Claire Petit), the press (Télérama, Kid’s Wear, Grazia Casa, Psychologie Mag), and theatre (Les Possédés, l’Avantage du doute).
On the Fantasia trend space, Elsa's papier mache and painted masks will project strange, extraordinary shadows while her colorful villages will inhabit the walls of the Press Office.
invited on the 'Press start' trend space
MOLISTUDIO is a 3D art direction and design boutique based in Buenos Aires, founded by passionate storytellers with a whimsical take on the everyday life. The team is, insistently, on the lookout for a deep color sense and a strong use of the metaphor; always aiming to find new excuses to celebrate the translation of ordinary life into the surreal while exploring the mesmerizing nature of this process.
An image from their Tennis series will illustrate the Press Start theme. Here, there are no rules other than to adhere to one principal: tennis was born to be graphical!

by KOKO cardboards
How about putting your phone away for a moment, extracting yourself from WiFi and joining Kasia Novak founder of KOKO cardboards in her temporary Playtime studio ?
Despite the disappearance of borders, despite the fact that the whole world meets on one wall of Instagram, it seems to be more difficult to actually meet and spend time with people...
So come share a moment of happy creativeness with Kasia to create a large, colorful, carboard totem, reflecting everyone’s inspiration and good vibes.

Work in Progress
Fashion sketches from the Playtime collections
Fashion is undoubtedly one of the most suitable fields for Metamorphosis. And it is precisely those that take place between the first sketches of a collection and its final realization that will be explored through this original exhibition, featuring dozens of drawings and work boards offered by brands exhibiting at the show.
'PLIC PLIC ORIGAMIC’
'PLIC PLIC ORIGAMIC’ is the name of Schokoparis's* marvellous journey from traditional to contemporary origami. It is also an artistic process that has been reinvented to allow children to discover the beauty and science of folding, and to show them how a simple square can transform into a thousand other things.
To each square its own geometry and color, to each graphic its folding and to each folding its season... Over at the VIP space of the show, Schokoparis will be unveiling its "geometrical", "origamic", and utterly "plic plic" calendar!
Schoko - aka Schokoparis - is a plastic artist, born in Japan and currently living and working in Paris.
With the tip of her fingers and a bit of magic, she creates a world of enchanted paper according to her 3 mantras: origami (folding), kiri-é (cutting), nuri-é (coloring).
LES JOLIES RENCONTRES
Artisanal portraits & Creative Studio
LES JOLIES RENCONTRES is a creative studio founded by Lola Pelletier and Justine Tiphaigne. Both trained architects, their current work places itself somewhere between scenography, graphic design, photography and video. Curious and creative, they like to imagine unique worlds and to create beautiful images. Recently they have been creating paper sceneries and installations for events and window displays.
Another aim of theirs is to showcase the values of know-how and craftsmanship through filmed portraits of artisans and creators, available on their website.
On the Aa.bsolution space, we will eat under their delightful suspensions of vegetal motifs.
Sophie Cuvelier is at the origin of a simple and light work "The fabulous garlands". Dyed paper garlands, all unique pieces, with universal shapes: triangles, circles, rectangles, that translate a desire to go to the essential.
With her flower lamps "Campanules" made in collaboration with Procédé Chenel and their anti fire papers she opens a bucolic design dimension to her playground of shapes and colors, constantly simplified, reinvented.
This season Sophie will suspend her luminous bluebells at the Soup & Juice restaurant, in alley T.

Photo exhibition by Milk Magazine
MilK magazine, guided as ever by its sensitive and hedonistic take on life, has had some inspiring encounters. Years of singular and enriching experiences have allowed MilK to turn from children’s fashion pioneer into documenter of a certain kind of family art de vivre. A family lifestyle of which fashion and design are integral parts, equals alongside the arts of cooking or travelling. Next stop: Berlin, where Marian Schönhofer, yoga teacher, does a little practice every morning with her daughter.
