This stole is inspired by the wings of the famous sculpture, The Winged Victory of Samothrace, on display at the musée du Louvre.
Early in Greek history, victory was represented as a winged goddess. The Winged Victory of Samothrace is the most famous example.
Erected on the Island of Samothrace at the beginning of the 2nd century B.C., this statue was discovered in 1863, and sent to the Louvre. The unfolding of its wings towards the rear indicates that Victory has just landed on the bow of a warship, probably to commemorate a naval victory and to honour the victor.
Marie-Christine Dorner, who graduated with honours from the École Camondo in Paris, received the Grand Prix for Design from the City of Paris in 1995. She was decorated in 2012 with the insignia of a Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters. Interior designer, designer, scenographer, she represents a multicultural "French touch", a perfectionist approach combining traditional know-how and high technology.
The artist borrowed from the Winged Victory - as well as from the wing of the Sleeping Eros, to create a light and elegant stole.
