PARIS — Alternative talent is what gives fashion a little spice — everything from sweet schoolgirls and waitresses to dreamy evening looks.
Bless: Designers Desiree Heiss and Ines Kaag of Bless served fashion victuals as waitresses dressed in their clothes and served lunch to editors in a cafe in northern Paris. Angora sweaters were detailed with concentric circles, while pants came with panels of angora and wool.
Charles Anastase: “Fairy tailored,” quipped Charles Anastase of his sweet, schoolgirl collection of shrunken jackets and short ballet skirts. Think Little Red Riding Hood-meets-Alice in Wonderland with trenchcoats and a fetching red velvet coat with a hood.
Bruno Pieters: Man Ray, Art Deco and Jean Cocteau inspired Belgian Bruno Pieters’ bell-shaped skirts, slim trousers and fitted coats. The silhouette was graceful, rounded out with artsy details, an abstract flower print and delicate dresses.
Gaspard Yurkievich: Though the blinking cabaret lights continued to inspire Gaspard Yurkievich, the designer added a softer element of romance. That meant dreamy long gowns decorated with feathers alongside cool blousons and crinkly gold and silver cocktail dresses.
