Vers le Nord

A selection of watercolors
made for Ambrym's FW 2013/2014 collection
"Vers le Nord, Living road"





"At the top of Oyaté mountain, beyond the red cloud,
 perched on a wood log, a chaman is dreaming a vision.

She's galloping up to the North Seas, crossing among ohers,
herds of Caribou, the track of Moby Dick, birds swarms,
teathered lamas and a crowned seal.

And there, between cold wind and foam, there is something in the air.
A wild freedom, the freedom of Violeta Parra's songs, of Dalva's stories, 
of Graciela Iturbide's pictures, of the Sioux people and many more.

All stories must fork there, at one time or another along their 
"Living road"."

The SS13 Ambrym collection "Insulaires" is a metro trip to an isolated archipelago.
It is said to have risen out of the sea between a solitary lagoon and a waterfall circus banked with banana trees and passionflowers.
It is the outcome of the meeting of a Duk-duk king, heir to Gauguin and Brel, and of a shy tribe, hidden under a secret group mask.
"Insulaires", it is time that freezes under a lemon sun, it is Lapérouse reappearing on his Astrolabe above the Sacré Coeur. It is the insular rhythm that settles in town, for lack of wind ...
