Specimen Color
Concept collection

Demeure presents Specimen Color, a timeless collection that tells a story inspired from cell biology and life on the seabed. Through a study of the creation process itself, the collection is built up as a series of pieces. One look develops organically to another. The woman who wears the garment carries different personas : seductive, romantic, androgynous, warrior. The organic forms echoes the to architectural and salient shapes.
Each silhouette is a small chapter of this strange story, where nostalgia of a wasted time clashes with fascination of the future.
Specimen color is honouring the old fabrics collection of the brand. They have been enhanced and transformed with the studio specific technic and approach : digital printing, hand dye… This craftsmanship combined with delicate greys, aged duck green, blues and gold, encounter silver nylon materials with fluorescent hues – meets technology.
The photographer Olivier Jacquet transcribes the story through a series of pictures taken in Paris, with a strong yet elegant narration. A series like a storyboard in progress.
