Talbot Runhofs‘ glamorous Pre-Fall 2019 line can be understood as an ode to the Roaring Twenties: when shaking your sequins, it will get sparkling, sensual and seductive. The incredibly glamorous pieces of this collection depict the joyful character, but also the preference to celebrate life in all its facets in this decade.
Despite all the political and economical problems, artists and bohemians escaped to a iridescent world that used to live an opulent, loud lifestyle. Why not celebrating today if you don’t know what tomorrow brings? When wearing these compelling creations, the attention is, without any doubt, all yours. Thus, this extravagant collection is made for a corageous, cosmopolitan and tough woman that enjoys living her life to the fullest.
When observing the colour choice of this collection, the influences of the ’20s clearly shine through: mysterious, seductive nuances, such as aubergine, russet and purple play a central role. Additionally, all your glamorous dreams come true. Thus, how could it be differently, a bunch of bright, sparkling metallics are applied. From rich gold to purple metallics- this collection enchants you by its incredibly glamorous character! Worth of mentioning is also the fact various metallics are often paired vividly together. Simply smooth!
Glamorous smokings, floating blouses, glitter dresses and cocktail dresses, that are often provided with all- over sequins, are creatively blurring the line between reality and our dreams. Elements from the past meet present ones. It takes some courage and the right attitude to wear these flamboyant creations. But, we promise you, if you are brave enough to do so, you will have the time of your life.
Another highlight which makes this collection so special is the extremely unique print choice: it is ranging from animal pattern to eye-catching, big flower prints. Last but not least sublime, graceful hearts made of sequins give you hope for a bright future. Influences from the past and present are ongoing mixed in a highly creative way, for instance in this collections’ flapper dresses. They are focused on a very tight waist this season- you can interpret this as holding things together, before everything falls apart…
