First View Paris Womenswear SS2014: Shine On
‘A graceful quality with a touch of gorgeousness’. ‘Whimsical and charming femininity’. ‘Light as a rainbow after a brief shower on a sun-bright spring morning’. These where some of the qualifications dropped by the experts reflecting on the runway revelations of Lanvin, Rochas and Dries van Noten.
It was all shining bright with layers of pearlescent lamé, crystalline finishing, reflective organza’s shot with metal and airy fabrications in shiny nylon-filament yarns. The loveliest of these shimmering lamé fabrics sparkled in bleached lemon yellow and pistachio.
The Lanvin looks have a vast party quality – festive cocktail dresses and skirts and lush lamé total-looks in space-age jewel shades cheap generic viagra came splendidly glittering down the runway. The Rochas outfits are meant to capture the translucent qualities of glass, frost, and crystals. Rochas designer Zannini freaks out in jacquard velvet bonded to duchess satin and thermo-sealed with Swarovski crystals. Everything glows and glistens, from pleated lamé to chartreuse technical fibre and spun sugar knits. The detail of the Dries van Noten collection is nearing haute couture quality. From micro-beaded gold shifts to simple cream skirts with tinselly gold ruffles.
In this first Paris style spot artistic embellishment and intergalactic textile technology add magic to otherwise modern and wearable clothes.
