Could Demna Gvasalia propel fashion onto another new path with his haute couture debut next year?
Speaking for the first time since his March show — a gripping and bombastic display of dystopian chic — Gvasalia described many epiphanies and personal transformations he experienced during the coronavirus lockdown and the aftermath and how he's fallen in love with fashion all over again.
He said the once-a-year timing reinforces that couture is "something quite special. We have to learn again to be patient to wait for special stuff. Doing it once a year, you have enough time to do really something special, to develop something that is not easy to copy. So it can really be a true couture."
And a couture that is gender-inclusive.
"I think men came to the point that they want to wear couture as well, and I know that we have some customers that will love that," he said. "I want to kind of erase the gender identification of couture being only for women, or only for older women who have money to afford it."
It is clear Gvasalia is relishing the opportunity to make couture.
