GUY LAROCHE unveiled the Autumn Winter 2019 Marbre noir collection, on Wednesday February 27th, during the ongoing Paris Fashion Week. Creative director Richard René took the marble as a main inspiration for this collection.
This collection is a homage to Guy Laroche. Laroche, the marble, as much a play on words, as an aesthetic gesture. Cutting and carving, a vocabulary adopted in Couture. The stone itself, conjured by trompe-l’oeil on double-faced crêpe, flowing through draped jersey, or intimated on diaphanous chiffon, with gleaming veins chased in rhinestone embroidery. Neoprene bevelled to a sharp edge and seamlessly joined. Sculptural bags as if carved from polished marble. Legs enveloped in marbled viscose knit, seemingly petrified. Lapidary eye shields mounted on a black lacquer frame, like portholes onto the unseen. – from Guy Laroche
