Stylish and ethnic inspired, Aurélie Bidermann’s creations bring with them always sage references to material cultures and traditions from around the world. Often presented in bold, luxurious traits, these are objects that know very well how to sparkle an immediate desire, season after season.
A dreamer, a traveller and a lover as Karim Sadli romantically portraits her, Aurélie Bidermann is fascinated by gold and gold-plated materials. One can find them roughly worked, shaped to zoological figures and geometrical forms or engraved beautifully in intricate flowery designs. Her compositions range usually from a delicate minimalism to more elaborate designs showing meticulous goldsmithing skills, and the latest inspirations from Brasil, Peru and the Navajo culture sure gave Bidermann the possibility to express her various facets as a designer.
We loved particularly how the coloured threads of cotton trail and wrap around the gold plated metal in those Brasil inspired pieces. They are not the most outstanding objects we’ve seen from her, yet thread weaving always evokes in us a certain human dimension that we very much cherish.
A final note: as there is undoubtedly a certain continuity in the style of her last couple of collections, we opted to show a mixed choice of pieces from A/W 12-13 and S/S 13.
