A fabulous French designer, Diane de Malherbe, is bringing a Parisian flair to Malta’s fashion scene with her new collection.
Inspired and awestruck by our gorgeous “mineral and marine landscapes”, rich history, and our cultural and artistic influences, Ms de Malherbe introduces her latest collection, full of exuberating elegance, Caravage. Diane de Malherbe opens up about her stunning, Malta-inspired collection…
“I knew I must dedicate to Malta my first collection designed here – Caravage – and use as my inspiration the island’s unique culture and architecture, the mineral and marine landscapes, and the works of artists such as Caravaggio or Turner who also depicted this mysterious island at the crossroads of Orient and Occident.”
Not only is Diane de Malherbe a high-end womenswear fashion designer, but she has also designed for several big brands, including Ralph & Russo and Céline, before launching her own brand in 2018. Nowadays, she is based between Malta and Paris, and continues to create her finely tailored, luxurious womenswear and bridalwear, to which she explains:
“I have created bridal dresses since the start, and they are always the quintessence of my collections” … “Also, one of my specialities is bespoke bridal dresses made from luxury fabrics and that feature embroidery I develop exclusively for the bride in question”.
And if that wasn’t enough to get you “Ooh-la-la”-ing, The Caravage 2020 collection will be available for viewing here in Malta at a pop-up boutique, taking place between the 22nd of October, up until the 1st of November, in Sliema! The pop-up shop will also feature some of Ms de Malherbe’s first collection, Cocteau, marvellously inspired by the gardens of Château de Courances in France and poetic artist, Jean Cocteau. However, due to the prevailing pandemic situation, appointments must be made in advance online.
Diane de Malherbe adds, “I am very much looking forward to welcoming you at our exclusive pop-up boutique in Malta, and I hope to be able to dress Maltese people, who I feel very close to as much as I do the island!”
