“Duality, as I perceive it, is a very feminine characteristic. We are moved by passion and reason, north and south, the objective and subjective, power and tenderness, beauty and practicality. I’m convinced that the modern and contemporaneous woman should not apologise for her “inconsistent” dualities and much less hide them. On the contrary, I want to celebrate my duality as something unique, as a feminine virtue rather that an imbalance or an imperfection. But I don’t want to simply point out this obvious feminine characteristic, I want to celebrate its existence and capture its essence in the design of an elegant and timeless collection. Appreciated or not our duality is part of our charm… And that, in summary, is the philosophy behind Duality.
The Duality collection is my tangible interpretation of that feminine duality. It is born out of my aspiration to materialise duality by means of contrasting materials and in the unconventional execution of its shape and form. We have successfully assembled timeless and balanced pieces using two contrasting elements: calfskin with its sublime elasticity, spongy and very smooth feel, and a wicker frontal structure characterised by its rigid, firm and characterful look and feel. This concoction travels through our pieces following geometrical right angles and curves, further establishing the duality philosophy that MAGALIE stands for. Aesthetic architectural pieces expressed using natural, living elements with its own distinctive character.”
