Première Vision Paris/1: Céline Méteil
When visiting Première Vision in Paris, I met Céline Méteil, 32 year old designer and this year winner of the Première Vision Prize at the Hyeres Festival.
Selected among ten finalists, Céline Méteil created a collection of airy and structured origami dresses made from jaconas. This stiff and transparent cotton plain weave is ordinarily used to create a three dimensional muslin prototype of a garment; her highly architectural clothing entertains a dialogue with the body, building on layers of transparency and lace, paired with fluid jerseys.
For Première Vision, Céline created an exclusive capsule collection of colorful garments: easy yet interesting pieces where she translates the same elements of the Hyeres collection (jaconas, jersey mix, lace…) into bright colours.
