In his short career, Maxime Simoens has already carved out his look, one based on a slightly futuristic, sexy, fitted silhouette with Art Deco-flavored touches, such as graphic fabric paneling and rich embroidery details. This season, the decor had a harder, more experimental slant, with lacquered cork panels, metal studs, plastic details and “tsunami” embroidery used to enliven sculptural Japanese-inspired looks. There were some striking combos, such as gold, brown, black and dark cherry, though the colorblocking felt a little busy at times. The lighter, flou silhouettes looked fresher, like a flouncy black mini with confettilike embroidery meant to evoke pixels. Paired with a cropped blouson in white crepe de chine, it’s the kind of fresh, flirty look French actress Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, who was sat front row, could pull off.
