the backstage haute couture fall-winter 2016-17

THE ATELIER CHANEL Recreating the Chanel ateliers down to the very last detail in the Grand Palais might have been yet another stroke of genius from Karl Lagerfeld. How better to showcase the French House’s unrivaled craftsmanship than by showing a collection as it comes to life? Surely a way for him to pay homage to the work of the incredible petites mains, this haute couture collection resonates like a heartfelt “thank you.” Walking around the seventy seamstresses and chefs d’ateliers, the models sported silhouettes defined by their precise cuts and their graphic shapes: the iconic Chanel jacket is boxy with accentuated shoulders and three-quarter sleeves, while sheer fabrics like organza and silk tulle applied in triangular layers add texture to fluid silhouettes. ATELIER VERSACE This season’s incredible cast of models at Atelier Versace…

menswear spring-summer 2017

THE NEW WAVE DIOR HOMME Kris Van Assche turns to New Wave to inspire his Dior Homme spring-summer 2017 collection, entitled “Fun Fair.” Fascinated by the contrasts between past and future, youth and tradition, the creative director places impeccable formal tailoring in symbiosis with an avowedly punk aesthetic. Formal pieces are subverted using sports lacing, staples, or harnesses, taking Dior Homme on a journey of tempered rebellion. THE KING COMME DES GARÇONS “The King is naked.” This is the statement viewers could read on an all-transparent PVC cape featured on the Comme des Garçons Homme Plus runway, as the legendary Rei Kawakubo unveiled her spring-summer 2017 collection. The ethereal silhouettes with hair creations by Julien D’Ys are inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s tale “The Emperor’s New Clothes.” The looks exhibit a lot of transparency, as…

the parisian

Expertise, elegance, and sophistication are the watchwords of Ingie Paris, the ready-to-wear house with a couture spirit launched by Ingie Chalhoub, founder of Etoile Group and a specialist in helping luxury brands access the Middle East. For several seasons, she has conceived collections full of a confident femininity, midway between Parisian chic and a flare for detail inspired by her Oriental origins. In that vein, she imagines a woman of a thousand faces, who finds her balance in silhouettes that blend classicism and a taste for audacity: like the electric blue jumper in lamé that adds a heightened sense of sensuality, while its rolled sleeves tone down any excessive femininity. Inspired by the beauty of the capital, the Ingie Paris woman has that classic Parisian charm, while her elegance is…

the angel

As the muse of Bonpoint YAM for several seasons, Angèle Metzger embodies the modern, new generation Parisian. Gracing the runway in July to show the House’s spring-summer 2017 collection, Angèle proudly represented the line with all of her flourishing beauty, blending a rock‘n’›roll spirit with the delicate charm of a budding plant. The face of an unstoppable generation, the young It Girl is overthrowing all the style codes and setting herself apart with her famously nonchalant attitude. At just seventeen years old, she is asserting her independence and individuality alongside her boy, Lukas Ionesco, star of Larry Clark’s The Smell of Us. Together, they are inventing a new formula for love that is unruly, young, and modern. A philosophy that is a perfect fit for Bonpoint’s juniors line, YAM (Y’en…

the artist bag

To celebrate the opening of its New Bond Street store in London, Dior is launching a line of limited edition accessories designed in collaboration with contemporary British artist Marc Quinn. Known for his sculpture of Kate Moss in yoga poses, his work explores the changing relationship of humanity and nature, together with cycles of growth and evolution. In his artworks, Quinn uses a broad range or traditional and non-traditional materials, as he tackles issues of life, death, and identity. For the opening of its new store in London, Dior asked the artist to reinterpret its iconic Lady Dior bag. On this ideal canvas, Marc Quinn transposes his hyperrealist oil paintings inspired by 17th century Dutch still life drawings, in a celebration of nature and its timeless beauty. Orchids, volcanic earth,…

the icon

More than just a perfume, Chanel N°5 encapsulates a rich olfactory heritage. Created in 1921 by Ernest Beaux, the fragrance marked a decisive turning point in global perfumery. Now one of the world’s top-selling perfumes and the emblem of the fashion house founded by Coco Chanel, N°5 has adapted to the changing times, without compromising its essence. Expressing a boundless modernity driven by a spirit of reinvention, its history is intimately tied up with the transmission of know-how: only three years after the launch of the original perfume, Ernest Beaux already transposed the formula into an Eau de Toilette. Jacques Polge picked up the torch in 1986, bringing the nectar into step with the times with the Eau de Parfum. In 2008, the perfumer took the next step by creating…
