Olivier Green: It was a very intense experience. I had just arrived in New York and suddenly I was put into this isolated environment where we work 16-20 hours a day for months. Of course, during the process, I learned tremendously about my potential and also from other designers. It's definitely a very special experience that I probably won't encounter in the future. Surprisingly I'm still in good relationships with many of the designers. I talk to Viktor regularly as he's in New York. I'm also in touch with Anthony, Laura, Bert... etc.
In five words or less, how would you describe your design aesthetic?
OG: Modern, Forward, Protective, Subtle and Empowering.
What was your inspiration for the fall 2012 collection?
OG: I was inspired by a futuristic fantasy. I thought how women would dress in their daily reaction with the modern lifestyle and our relation with the busy lifestyle and the tough environment.
Did you have a particular color palette in mind for the fall collection? What colors did you decide to work with?
OG: Yes, my color palette was a very cool shades of the night sky. Different tones of violets, indigo and metallic grays and blacks.
What kind of woman do you want to see wearing your clothes?
OG: When I start my design process I always imagine an intelligent and confident girl who works in a big city. She is perhaps in the creative industry, leading a busy lifestyle and enjoys being around people.
