Peau d'Ane

By Anne Valerie Hash

 

A contemporary take on a classic tale.

What is your favorite fairy tale ?
When I asked her this question, Anne Valérie Hash replied that two tales stood out from the rest: Cinderella and… Peau D’Ane! The stories are quite different but they have one important aspect in common: the impact that appearance, fine jewels and clothes can have on a character’s destiny. By illustrating this tale, the designer allows us to rediscover Peau D’Ane's timeless imaginary world. For if the tale continues to fascinate us today it’s that beyond appearance it raises questions about women and freedom.
