Schiaparelli - show Haute Couture Autumn/winter 2018/19 in Paris (with interview)

Artistic Director : Bertrand GuyonPlace: Under the gold of the Palais Garnier Opéra in ParisCollection : The animal theme is the main thread of this collection with masks and fun hats, in the form of a rabit or a pink flamingo designed, by Stephen Jones, adds an extra touch of fantasy and dream. Leopard, zebra and spotted prints are re-interpreted in a new and modern colorama. Butterfly motifs are printed or or are embossed onto a ball gown.Focus on an asymmetrical sheath with a falling panel on the side, or on a black, velvet, perforated dress.To note: The delicate lace embroideries, the face of Schiaparelli which appears on a tunic dress, an enchanting dream emanating fantasy of this collection of heterogeneous casting. With interview of Bertrand Guyon, artistic director of Schiaparelli : A lot of lightness but also opulence, I really like the contrast between the two but also, the animal and theatrical world here at Palais Garnier. There are always colours, but black is also present this season, for the first time there’s a whole black section, it’s also a reference to Elsa Schiaparelli when she dressed in black during the day and colourfully at night, with incredible accessories, extraordinary embroidery and I really like the contrast there, but it’s still opulent, it’s still haute couture as I like to treat it. It’s a rich, structured collection, with a lot of research on cut, it’s measured opulence, there’s an appropriate balance between the more solemn models like the little black dress, the perforated velvet dress or the entirely handmade cut-outs, a pretty amazing job. And then the incredible dresses, fully embroidered with mirrors which was a very Schiap material, it’s a light side that I really like.
