A new fashion series by Hélène Tchen & Marylou Burlion, about the character “Colombine” from the folklore stories linked to Pierrot And Arlequin in the commedia dell’arte.

@helenetchen @marylou_san

Colombine is a complex character that, through the history of theater, was generally described as a humble servant, with a malicious, manipulative and insolent personnality (as she had many men in love with her). In the 18th century her character was even more controversial as her role was played without mask, but with makeup instead, which at the time was used by prostitutes.

We wanted our story to transform the initial persona of Colombine into a more inclusive, self owned and dreamy character. The visual folklore of Colombine, Pierrot and Arlequin has a big influence today in fashion; Our aim was to bend over that thematic once again and get rid of the image history gave to Colombine, and instead show her as a free person that does and acts how she pleases.
