/ THE BRAND
We are oblique
We create neo-futuristic coats for women who are looking for sustainable pieces without compromising on aesthetics. We are Paris-based.
We have of meaning
This word comes from the Latin obliquus which means "sidelong", "sideways", like our will to take a different path. It is composed of the prefix ob- which marks an idea of opposition, like our positioning in the face of the fashion industry whose operation has harmful ecological and social consequences.
Then the radical lic-, which can be found in
- licium, the weft thread of the looms that symbolises our outerwear - licinus, which means "turned upwards", like our looks turned towards a future that we shape.
We create coats
We have chosen to create coats because they are the piece of clothing we wear to face the world, the ones that protect us, the ones others see.
Outwear has a complex symbolism due to its highly functional dimension, and also social. This symbolism varies spatially and temporally. We let see who we are through the coat we wear.
Neo-futuristic aesthetics. Sculptural, architectural silhouettes. Graphic cuts. Ample volumes. Noble and natural or synthetic and innovative materials.
A sobriety with sophisticated details.
Our artistic line
Neo-futurism. Architectural movement of the 21st century. Idealistic. Avant-garde. Aesthetics, technology and ethical values. Exalts the contemporary world. Glorifies urbanity and machines. Gives primacy to shapes and materials. Instills dynamism and speed.
Each one of our collections starts from our artistic line linked to the neo-futurism to look for another aesthetic universe with strong symbolic. Universe that we seek in the course of our inspirations, our personal interests, which always lead to a better understanding of the contemporary social problems.
