French designer Marc le Bihan’s work is rooted in conceptual design to produce beautiful, timeless fashion, not transitory trends. A rule breaker from the beginning, le Bihan showcases his men’s and women’s collection together, fundamentally the same, the separation between genders is only one of cut.
Producing skirts for men and women, le Bihan’s work is not however androgynous, instead it is innately feminine and masculine, reaffirming sexuality rather than blending or blurring it. Designs are realized in a spectrum of near whites and saturated tones of black, realized through traditional dye methods including dip dying and shibori dye techniques.
Le Bihan’s designs are ethereal, delicate and sensual. Complex draping combine through his elegant vision to produce a spare collection with contrasted materials such as leather and chiffon, latex and tulle. His asymmetrical styling is at once quirky and sophisticated. There is a ghostly rebelliousness to his work that simultaneously honors history, material and craft.
