A punky yet austere Guy Laroche ready-to-wear collection hit the catwalk at Paris Fashion Week with a collection set out to encapsulate “luxurious, streamlined audacity” according to designer Marcel Marongiu.
Jackets came in glossy black leather, skirts and dresses had pleats and oversized ruffles, and a raven-like ruffled coat was worn over a delicate skirt.
All the models sported jet-black ankle boots with chunky heels.
The designer took transparency one step further with embellished sheer dresses that left little to the imagination.
Glowing psychedelic lines and vibrant neon colours took centre-stage in Dries Van Noten’s bold Autumn-Winter collection.
The Belgian designer combined the softness of flowers with the dynamism of optical art graphics, creating a fashion hybrid that was risky but wearable.
A masculine balance came courtesy of cropped wide-leg trousers.
