Is this a summer shoe?
I have to say that I expected more from Riccardo Tisci this time. I think I have already in mind his last wonderful Couture Collection (it was also my first post here); that was superb. This time the show is certainly powerful and sensual but unconvincing. Strong is the Black&White and the feminine&masculine contrast, nice the work on leather and chiffon. Modern dark girls on the runways also in trasparencies, leopardskin, strong make-up and slim silhouettes.
This is probably going to be the last Jean-Paul Gaultier's collection for the Maison...
A very sexy woman on the runway, a chic cow-girl dressed in leather (of course!). The DNA of Hermès is certainly well represented in all the outfits, from the slim jackets to the trousers, and of course in all the accessories: the belts, the boots, the hats and the It-Bags. Wonderful the setting: horses and riders at the beginnig of the runway conceived as a stable.
I have to say that I really had problems in choosing the outfits for the post because all the looks were amazing... This is just a little selection but I think that Alber Elbaz is doing a great job at Lanvin. He is bringing the Maison into another level. The collection is feminine, chic and every piece is wearable. Fluent dresses, clean proportions and a really interesting research. Drapes, appliquè, prints for a modern and complete collection, full of different references and styles. Wonderful also the colour palette: from black, grey, beige to all fluo colours as yellow, fuchsia, purple... I love all the monospalla (don't know the translation) dresses and the accessories, in particular the necklaces and the flat sandals.
