Exclusive Luxury Couture Scarves
Discovered by Karl Lagerfeld in 2003, an encounter that radically changed her young artist's life and it was the beginning of a long passionate collaboration and the launching platform of the atelier Fosca in Paris in the following years.
Since then, Fosca has collaborated with many fashion designers including Balenciaga and Juanjo Oliva.
Her Couture scarves have become a fashion icon worn by stars and princesses and Fosca has designed exclusive products for Penelope Cruz, Queen Rania of Jordan, Salma Hayeck, Eva Green, Monica Bellucci, Vincent Cassel, Sophie Marceau, Lou Doillon...
Born in Paris of an Italian mother and a Spanish father, her work is inspired by the different cultures of the countries she lived in and travelled to since childhood, when her father’s business imposed on the family a nomadic lifestyle. Due to her frequent travels, Fosca felt the desire to create an accessory that was easy to carry around, that could be worn in different ways and that gave her a touch of sophistication no matter what she wore it with. During the years, this idea flourished and Fosca continued to design scarves for herself and her friends while still working as an architect in Ibiza, until the unexpected call to the Maison Lagerfeld.
Fosca's education and early work as an architect and designer has a great influence on her creations. Her scarves mix the colors of nature with the graphic lines of industrial drawings. Her style is personal and contemporary; her scarves are works of art resulting from the same experimental and creative process mastered by sculptures and painters.
Her products are created to tell a story and express an emotion, a hybrid between fashion and art.
My Colorful History
The concept was developed many years ago when Fosca worked and studied Design in Milan. Having in one day many different commitments, she found the need to invent an accessory that she could ware in different situations. A long scarf to ware at an elegant and impromptu dinner after a day at university or at work was the perfect solution.
Many years later, she lived in Ibiza and continued making scarves for friends. 'One day Someone saw them and transformed her life. Karl Lagerfeld "came to her door" and asked her to work with him as a textile designer in Paris and so she did'.
Fosca Bertrán's scarves are characterized by colour. The world is pure colour, an infinite range of combinations that create multiple emotions. Block of primary colours that transport you to distant exotic natural worlds.
Her idea is to present scarves for which every woman can find a different use. In turn a stole, a scarf or a sarong, they can both add a touch of elegance to a simple black dress. And they are large size, three meters. She likes to create the romantic effect of the scarf blowing in the wind. An accessory to dress. A multi purpose accessory. A unique accessory.
Printed on a fluid, pure silk Georgette crépe, Fosca's long stoles are very recognizable with their broad graphic patterns inspired by her passion for painting and architecture. Her geometric designs come from her architectural roots. Like in painting, she likes to play with multiple dimensions, moving from two to three and four dimensions.
Each side printed with a different design, the perfect balance between two intertwining stories, breaking all conventions; a unique style that requires her to use a stamping technique to obtain a unique special effect.
The production is in Lyon, for generations the site of the "savoir faire" of silk, where the taste for extreme detail and quality is king and where the use of inkjet technique was pioneered. The inkjet allows for larger scale drawing and only the best quality French silk is selected for her scarves.
The seams are perfect; each scarf undergoing many controls to avoid that even the minimal imperfection is overlooked; each scarf hand sewn by magical hands that know exactly what colour to use for each of the scarves.
A foulard Fosca Bertrán is romance, sensuality, elegance, extreme quality, colour, joy, personality, art object, trendy, an accessory that makes us unique.
