Guy Laroche presented Fall Winter 2016 womenswear collection during the Paris Fashion Week. The collection is inpired by Hieronymus Bosch’s artworks.
In a world saturated by trends, images and overall noise, Guy Laroche Winter 2016 seeks to go back to essentials. Streamlined in form and in color, the collection confronts modern graphic volumes with sensual shapes. Charcoal, ash and ivory lead the way, giving way to twisted Guy Laroche classics. A revisited aviator jacket comes cropped with subtly bouffant sleeves, and paired with high-waisted, tapered trousers. As throughout the house’s history, separates are explored and updated: this time, a monochrome silhouette is composed of a sharp pencil skirt and an Empire cut top. Piece after piece, graphic, military lines are contrasted by ruffles and cocoon volumes. A black blouson is embellished by hand painted floral details, elevating functionality to a lush statement. An ode to the intricacy of the Flemish Primitive movement and to Hieronymus Bosch’s work can be found in the scroll work embroidery and the organic handpainted copper embellishments – connecting the garments’ modernity to a sense of old world emotionality. This collection goes back to a pre-digital definition of luxury, celebrating delicate detailing, the invisible precision of a cut, and most importantly, every piece’s intangible relation to its wearer. – from Guy Laroche
