Veronique Branquinho Fall Winter Collection 2013/14 in Paris (with itw)
On this first day of collections, the belgians are particularly honored with the véronique branquinho presentation at the palais de tokyo, surrounded backstage by her compatriots dirk van saene and walter van beirendonck. on the catwalk, the designer delivers a multi-ethnic fashion, mixing elements from japan, england and the united states. we find enveloping coats in tweed, bustiers highlighted by an obi belt and studded tunic dresses. stetson on the head, cowboy boots, the look remains ultra feminine, elegant and subtle. matt and shiny fabrics overlap, trousers in satin are associated with straight jersey dresses. the silhouette is slender with calf-length skirts and trousers that fall on the ankle. the animal print adds a touch of fantasy to the sleeves of leopard redingotes, mohair imitates astrakhan, cotton is quilted with leather. véronique branquinho handles textures and the cut with talent, for a wearable wardrobe combining rigor and sensuality.
music from fashion show
veronique branquinho : i particularly wanted a woman that's a slightly bohemian and modern, there are many ethnic influences of different culture, the japanese culture with the obi belt, the american culture with the cowboy element and also english fabrics, tweeds, the shetland, the tuxedo. many evenings, but never too much, always a little restrained, subtle and elegant.
there are a lot of smooth structures, like satin but also baby alpaca with the hair and with real and fake leather.
