Thin and high waist, the velvet shoulders, high heels, revealed bodyFocus on : the sporty stripes, reinterpreted on an urban wardrobe, from black and white skirt and shirt to a vest with a sequined skirt, or a top with butterfly sleeves, a dress with coloured bands ready to be put on Lingerie vibe with chic baby doll dressesHigh waisted skirt and trousers, belted To note : the details of this whole ‘jogging’ style with leopard prints, the glittering embroidery on the long sleeves of the gowns.Interview with Guillaume Henry :The past season, I was in inspired by the wardrobe and the vocabulary of a bourgeoise woman who I have imagined or as I’ve seen in the movies I love. Here this time I wanted to see her travelling, and I looked a bit at the South American side and how the people dress, there’s are a lot of interbreeding in the way they dress, they can have an incredible allure with a football t-shirt for example There is always a coloured side, joyful, and graphics that can always be found in both art and in general. it’s something, the stripes, that I associate with the sun and it’s true that I wanted the colours to reflect that, or they are tones that go from one to other, but in all the shades, I wanted the stripes to move like a rainbow When I work on the clothes I do not necessarily think of the garment’s design, I think about how it will be worn. For example, we walk differently when we wear a fitted skirt compared to when we wear loose trousers. Although the models were wearing the same shoes they were representing different women. I wanted to have a different wardrobe but always have the same allure. Music from the show (only to be used in the context of the show, protected by the right to information.)
