Parisian shoe designer Amélie Pichard launched her dreamy, feminine namesake line in 2011. She won the Grand Prix de La création de la ville de Paris in 2012. For this season, the designer worked on a Vegan collection, '90-inspired accessories with her muse Pamela Anderson.
With a transporting sense of fantasy and creativity, her collections translate cinematic, surreal, and retro inspirations into timeless styles rendered in modern materials: signature creepers, oxfords, and block heels in unexpected velvet, shearling, reptile and trompe-l'oeil fabrications.

Following in the tradition of Parisian-inflected Japanese fashion, designer Masanori Morikawa launched the Christian Dada line in 2010 under the heavy influence of dadaism. The designer is known for his nonconformist silhouettes and punk rock attitudes.
Based in Tokyo, this emerging line for both men and women is characterized by couture-like treatments - quilting, embroidery, luxe fabrics, knits, brocade, velvet and quality outerwear. Recent collections have been imbued with a dark sensibility and avant-garde goth elements.
