Matereza Couture Fall Winter 2021 – 2022 at Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture

À Cassandre 

Inspired by Ronsard’s poem, MaTereza, gives us an idyllic vision of beauty, fragile, ethereal and precious. Silk, satin, tulle, adorned here and there with hand cutted flowers. We travel from aqua green to black, from white to red, following the phases of the blossoming of a flower woman.

Sweetheart, let’s see if the rose

That this morning had open

Her crimson dress to the Sun,

This evening hasn’t lost

The folds of her crimson dress,

And her complexion similar to yours.

Ah! See how in such short space

My sweetheart, she has on this very spot

All her beauties lost!

O, so un-motherly Nature,

Since such a beautiful flower

Only last from dawn to dusk!

So if you believe me, my sweetheart,

While time still flowers for you,

In its freshest novelty,

Do take advantage of your youthful bloom:

As it did to this flower, the doom

Of age will blight your beauty.
