Nicolas Ghesquière’s collection this year focused on Sci-fi futurism with the play on exaggerated volumes.
The show stunned me with a lot of interesting fabrications like molded rubber, space suit sleeves, sculptural dresses in the sequin-embroidered mesh. All the details and the way the collection was set up had a sci-fi feel to it. The show finished off with the “space suits” in metallic floral jacquards.
One of my favorite outfits was the blue patterned white dress with blue bishop-sleeves, it was worn with a sleeveless black vest stitched at the waist with a very tiny silver belt. The outfit looked both interesting, due to the details and volume of the sleeves, and clean.
I also loved the masculine suits shown on deliberately androgynous female models. The structure and shape of the grey suit, in particular, drew my attention. The high-low detail at the bottom of the trousers was also an interesting spin.
The collection felts very sci-fi with lots of interesting details. I would say this is a more challenging collection to process, but the creative vision and the beautiful play on shapes cannot be ignored.
