Guy Laroche Spring 2018: Paris Fashion Week

Guy Laroche Paris Fashion Week SS18

Represented by IC Insight Communications.

Super cool and retro were on the menu at Richard René‘s latest Paris Fashion Week show. The designer returned to the audacity that animated the house with a ’70s and ’80s take. The free spirit of the women the designer dressed at the time resurfaced all through the 17 signature silhouettes.

“The inspiration of this collection stems from the most faithful client and friend of Monsieur Guy Laroche. This famous actress and many film directors who filmed her, have had her wear the House’s style throughout her career.”

While reviving the irreverence and freedom of the past splendid decades, this collection expresses a radical aesthetic in black-and-white architectural and graphic looks.

The silhouettes are lean and structured with accentuated shoulders. The shapes are trimmed to a sharp edge and create cut-outs and asymmetric slashes. And when the sequins of the year 1976 make a comeback, it is to a black mat finish with a leather aspect…

A boat neckline evening dress re-invented in a sailor-stripe top via sequined and organza XL stripes, the jacket of a grain de poudre pantsuit so refined that the underside of the collar vanishes from sight, a coat dress with a trompe-oeil focus, a black silk faille cinched coat is reduced to the extreme, a white asymmetric jersey dress slit at the elbow so one cannot completely slip on the sleeves. The looks are interspersed by a series of accessories (bags, shoes and jewelry) all in black and navy patent leather.

While the House of Guy Laroche is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, Richard René is defining the outlines of a new maximalism.
