Spring-Summer 1997 is the first part of a collection divided into two seasons. All the outfits are made from a single element that blends the two seasons: a hollowed-out Stockman mannequin bust worn in a rigid jacket.

Autumn-Winter 1997-98 is also dedicated to the stages of creating a garment. Stockman's bust in a jacket is again the basis. Stockman's arms in linen or cotton canvas were reproduced, worn in removable sleeves held to the garment by pins.
