"STEPHANE ROLLAND" Haute Couture Autumn Winter 2012 2013 by FashionChannel
Stéphane Rolland drew inspiration for his Fall/Winter collection from Finnish architect and furniture designer, Alvar Aalto. Boasting sleek lines and flowing capes, this collection defined both ethereal beauty and exquisite engineering.
A parade of floating, chiffon and organza gowns made their way down the catwalk in rich camel, elegant ivory, and lush ruby shades.
Daring slits, tiers of soft layers, elaborate ruffles, and provocative cutouts enhanced each creation. Feathers, suede fringe, silicone fur, and polished wooden accessories adorned several pieces and boasted the modern-day art influences Stéphane drew from.
This season, Rolland closed his fall/winter 2012/2013 presentation by outfitting stunning Chinese actress Fan Bing Bing in a dramatic white wedding gown dripping in leather fringes, trailing a majestic, and perhaps somewhat lighter train. Still, four attendants in white lab coats awaited this bride at the end of the runway to arrange her train artfully for photos.
