‘Pelages et Camouflage’ (Furs and Camouflage) is a patchwork of animal fur nicely distinguished and framed by beads of pearls. Nature, always inventive, has decorated fauna with exuberant skins, coverings as splendid as they are protective when it comes to blending into the savannah. A fantasy which has inspired man's own coverings. From her native Africa and her imaginary travels, Aline Honoré has brought back a mosaic full of the sumptuous and the wild. The carré Pelages et Camouflages is a patchwork which mixes up these treasures of primitive prints, gathered together with necklaces of Massai pearls in between, from Senegal or from Ethiopia, a Peul wall hanging, fabrics from Ghana, Zaire, Mali and craft embroidery. Amongst all these disguises, notice that of an imaginary animal, marked by H's, tipping us a wink.
