Designer: Maurizio GalanteAtmosphere: Maurizio Galante mixes architecture, design and haute couture. He presents his work at OFF Paris Seine Hôtel, the first hotel which floats on the Seine for which he designed both the interior spaces and the suites.Collection: Entitled "Drago" in reference to dragons. Organza, silk or cotton cut in mimicry of pointed scales. Clothes which impress and protect, comprising an incredible lightness.Focus on: Design objects such as the armchair, pouf as well as limited edition handmade vases.Interview Maurizio Galante: My work is transversal between fashion, design, and architecture. We’ve done something specific with this space. We’ve worked with every part of this restaurant, the two suites, as well as with the reception.It’s between fashion and design. It’s a little bit like looking for a dialogue between the two. Taking something from one and bringing it to the other; this is fundamental.The idea of ‘Drago’ was more of a concept than it was a question of clothes. They’re not simply things that can cover, it’s rather that they protect us. They must protect us. And at the same time, it’s something that highlights us, like a frame. The idea is also that clothing, for me, it’s a talisman. I can use materials like organza, silk, or cotton. On the other hand, this is a work of repetition, and it becomes something rich and unique. The clothing is not rigid, it’s nothing like a uniform.Music of the show (only to be used in the context of the show, under the protection of the right to information)
