    White memory


    Scorching rays of the sun lighten up the entire town. Off-white, grey-white, milky, and ivory. Buildings made of sandy limestone stand next to each other, the rays of light bringing out the various tones of white.

    As one walks along the old cobblestone paths, limestone powders dance through the city, faintly embracing the body. Fusing with the dryness, a powdered texture is created on skin and clothes.

    Travelling to the ancient city of Arles in the Provence region of Southern France. There remains historical buildings from ancient Roman ruins to Romanesque churches, and the scenery of rustic townscapes together with nature loved by various artists.

    From the various expressions of white to its texture that one came across in Arles, to the traditional embroidery techniques that have been passed down locally and plants that bloom in the city.

    Memories of the early summer spent in southern France transform into the 2023 Pre-Fall collection, woven in a relaxed mood like the slow flow of the Rhone River.
