Haute Couture outfit’s secrets : the Haute Couture jacket of Nausicaa, Captain Harlock’s hidden love

Si In Kim landed one morning in our workshop from outer space. This tall doll of one meter eighty, straight from Korea, came directly from a manga that a whole generation knew well: Captain Harlock.

A trompe-l’oeil jacket

“We’ll use a middle-back zipper,” I answer.

It will be enough thereafter to sheath the legs of this Sylvidre in a cigarette pants with black sequins.

Mini gloves in perforated leather will bring a rock side.

Arcadia, the new Premier handbag

It is on this look that I want to launch the new Premier bag in grained calf, entirely studded, that I named Arcadia which is none other than the name of Captain Harlock’s ship.

Nicolas just had to add a starlight on his forehead to give it all its splendor.

As for Jack, all he had to do was smooth out his gorgeous platinum mane.


She was my childhood memories, my obsessions and my scares from back then.
Her nonchalance and lost look fascinated the audience, she was no longer a model, she was a character from Leiji Matsumoto‘s imagination.
