With its beaches, casino, gold, horse riding, shopping and hotels, Deauville is a small city that manages to provide all the entertainment sought out by Parisians and others who come for weekends and holidays. I wanted to build on this idea by creating “all-in-one” costumes, in the image of Deauville, an “all-in-one” city. In this way Deauville becomes a typical silhouette, a totem. With my team, I created costumes from the four of the city’s characterstic recreational activities, choosing all the objects and elements on the spot, as if they were magnetically attracted to the model.
I wish to thank the directors of the stores, the casino and the racetrack, without whom these photographs would not have been possible.
