"Clothing as housing, the shell in which we live and breathe" is the credo of Swiss fashion designer Christa de Carouge. Her creations, usually made of black shimmering silk in simple drapes that caress the wearer, combine comfort with individuality and aesthetic beauty.

Architecture expert Werner Blaser explores the designer's work, aesthetics, and philosophy, as well as discussing her debt to Mies van der Rohe's "less is more" and to Le Corbusier's fabric collages.
