I profoundly live my passions. I live through them, they become an important part of my life. Maybe this is why most of them do not last for long, because I live them too intensely. But they unavoidably leave traces.
Back to my adolescence days, I was so very passionate about the old Hollywood movies…you know, those movies that make you fantasise about Cary Grant, Clark Gable, John Wayne and Gene Kelly and ultimately remember the glamour, outstanding beauty and talent of Ingrid Bergman, Grace Kelly, Mary Pickford, Greta Garbo and Vivien Leigh. I loved their classical narration and its psychological motivation, i.e. the will of a human character and its struggle with obstacles towards a defined goal. And I liked the active and strong feminine characters in Classical Hollywood Cinema, very goal oriented and with their clearly definable traits. And I absolutely loved their style...starting with the clothes, the social appearance, manners and the incredible femininity.
The time has passed, and I still watch this kind of movies with great joy. And there is something about those actresses that for ever changed my perception on women’s clothing.
So, I needed to have my own Old Hollywood Capsule Collection, with signature evening and cocktail outfits...and this is only the starting point, it will be continued with a more comprehensive collection. And I also needed to have a proper online platform to be able to showcase these outfits, and so here I am...proudly presenting Le Rêve du Michou’s new online store, incorporating both the latest Old Hollywood Capsule Collection, but also various pieces from our previous collections.
Welcome and enjoy a new shopping experience with us!
