Roland Mouret drew inspiration from cubism, implementing a precise pattern making approach to deliver a 3D architectural effect that is a signature element of his artisanal clothes. He created asymmetrical and irregular shapes by folding fabric to create flaps and vents that angle away from the body. A geometric red herringbone ensemble features an origami-like folded collar that mirrors the clean lines of the high slit skirt.
Carven’s Guillaume Henry brought back 40s glamour emphasizing long sensuous silhouettes. A matching leopard print double breasted jacket with coordinating high-waisted skirt is smoking hot with a sexy zippered slit.
Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing demonstrated that women can still be sexy without wearing ultra revealing clothing to get their point across. The high slit of this black and white herringbone pencil skirt is front and center, but paired with leggings underneath, the slit seems a little less daring but just as eye catching. The knee length pencil skirt is cinched at the waist with a zebra print belt with chain embellishments and is topped by a colorful raccoon fur top.
The much-anticipated debut collection by Nicholas Ghesquiere at Louis Vuitton was even more full of surprises than expected. Ghesquiere mixed bonded fabrics to construct chic 60s A-line ensembles with ultra clean lines. The diagonally cut leather and tweed skirt demonstrates Ghesquiere’s impeccable eye for unique fabric combinations. The slits on either side of the skirt along with the center are lined with multi-functional zippers.
