Act 3&4, 2022
Elise and her sports car. She stands firm, hand on the slick hood, wind blowing in the wide space. Elise goes Patou-miles-an-hour into the open road. Racer cap, lacquered nylon, khaki, gravel, earthy green. Thigh high, pedal to the metal – as far as the eye can JP.
INT. YVELINES – MAARTJE’S BEDROOM – LATE AFTERNOON
Maartje is a Patou girl living in a Patou world. In her chambre à soi, she’s got the horizon on the brim of her bucket hat. Fleurettes in bed, lavender and rose and powder blue. Knits and quilts and her best teddy friend, Mini Pattes-oo.
Maartje leaves her worries behind while Elise goes full speed ahead.
One, douce and mild. The other, deuce’s wild!
Together: The Patou Two.
In March 2022, Guillaume Henry presented the collection.
