Paris Fashion Week - Guy Laroche

The show opens with laminated burgundy PVC with black. Roll neck jumpers with structured arms are contrasted with the stiff fabric of the PVC in jackets and skirts. Black continues in the collection with textured wool dresses, shaggy sheep skin, sheer ruffled blouses and low waisted belted midi skirts. Following the high-shine textures we saw black leather lamp shade skirts with turtle neck jumpers and worn with elbow high black leather gloves – matching the curved heel, knee high boots. Cream and white filters in with near sheer tight turtle necks with off white satin cigarette pants, gathered delicately at the waist and mixing luxurious fabrics with Parisian chic and casual wear. Adding a twist to this collection was the layering of skirts under tunics and other skirts – peeping through side splits and a trend we have seen quite a lot this season already. Silvery gunmetal hits the catwalk with satin and chiffon light dressres with long sleeves, low hems and modest necklines – the collection remained classy contrasting with the amost kinky boots, gloves and textured leather. Red and gold feature textured metallic fabrics looking shabbily chic and deconstructed as the show closes. Final outfits featured metallic gold foil prints on black in an almost Aztec shapes. The collection was shorter than expected but developed nicely and was edited well – aimed at a market of smart, sophisticated women the collection hit trends yet was incredibly commercial and wearable.
