L´air Barbès is a tribute to Paris, capital de la mode.
"I was in my teens when I first discovered Helmut Newton´s picture that made YSL´s Le Smoking iconic. The genderlessness really made a big impression on me. With stark monochrome simplicity, Newton created a piece of iconography I still find myself influenced by. In the making of L´air Barbès I was strongly influenced by the androgyny in this picture. "
