Schiaparelli Haute Couture A/W 2015-2016 Collection- Bertrand Guyon’s Debut at Maison Schiaparelli
Paris Fashion Week, Haute Couture Week, the most important Show for every Maison.
Bertrand Guyon’s debut collection for the recently re-established Italian house Schiaparelli was a strong one, in all senses of the word. Colors were bold and spirited, ranging from ruby reds and hot pinks to mermaid tones and zesty citrus hues. Clashing was also one of the collection’s main features, with loud beige plaids offset by pink furs and embellished blouses teamed with light, shimmery skirts.
There was also an emphasis on the mixing and matching of fabrics to create texture and depth. Brocade coats, sequin tops, jacquard suits, cashmere trousers, minks and tweeds all held their own alongside one another, blending together to achieve an overall effect of unconventional elegance. Meanwhile quirky accessories such as whimsical and imaginative sculpted tiaras kept things light and playful.
The collection is plenty of the couture not so much of the Leigh Bowery.
Polite elegance , with vintage Flair!
