It was just a matter of time before Jonathan Simkhai branched out into evening wear. After all, he is highly sought out by the girl around town. “I have been doing some special red carpet looks and I have always loved to connect with the customer, so this was the perfect opportunity to expand,” said Simkhai at his presentation, where he displayed eight handmade evening looks on models.
Inspired by the iconic glass ceilings of the Grand Palais and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Simkhai filled his gowns with transparencies, gilded details and fantastical elements. A red corded lace appliqué look featured flared sleeves and a magistral trumpet skirt. Another standout was an ivory long sleeve gown with lace bodice, and a shredded chiffon and ostrich feather skirt. On a lighter note: a fun crepe jumpsuit with lace inset and train.
So there was definitely a range — especially since Simkhai did not forget his more casual roots, offered this season via his hit lace little dresses and flirtatious tops.
