My inspiration is a modern women with her versatile and fluid nature. I’ve always been attracted to the contrast of light and shadow, graphic and soft lines: a mixture of styles. In this seeming dissonance i see the real beauty of a woman’s essence. These ideas led me to a concept which i call “romantic geometry”, that blends strong linear forms with gentle femminine details.

The style of KARINE reflects some elements of retro, mainly 60s and 70s for example A-line silhouettes. Another feature of KARINE is an element of irony, which gives images their quirkiness and flair.
