Title of the Collection: Bleached Canvas Collection

Location: A long corridor in the Musée d’Art Moderne

Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller approached her collection by saying “It’s about really starting fresh, really cleaning the house. I wanted to start with nothing, and then put incredible colour in it, incredible techniques, all about silhouette, architecture, structure and just beauty.”

The collection starts with a chic black suit with a white lapel. Colour followed after in acid yellow, ultraviolet, bright red and cobalt blue.

Schiaparelli Haute Couture Spring Summer 2019

Creative Director Bertrand Guyon’s collection explored the founder Elsa Schiaparelli’s obsession with astrological signs and flowers. Her lesser-known work in the Fifties was the inspiration for the collection. Schiaparelli’s uncle compared the beauty marks on her cheek to the stars forming the constellation Ursa Major, when she was a little girl.

Guyon said backstage “It’s a very current collection which is almost futuristic, even, because I wanted to work on totally different colour combinations inspired by the porcelain of Sèvres, Chantilly and Meissen for the floral section. It’s also very humorous and optimistic”.

Designer John Galliano’s Maison Margiela Artisanal Collection statement said ‘Decadence is a cyclical circumstance moving with the turns of the centuries,’ a further explanatory statement read ‘Revolution: a desire for change. Maison Margiela renders the decadence of our time and examines if inverted excess could lead to a new appetite for restraint.’

The set had colourful graffiti on the ceiling and a mirrored floor. The graffiti was also mirrored in the patterned clothes coming down the runway.
