Fashion Show Nº28, Women’s Collection Fall–Winter 1999–2000
The collection is very concentrated, limited to a mere 48 stark, graphic silhouettes. Hairdresser Odile Gilbert’s use of real flowers in the models’ hair softens the strong lines of the show, the styling has a Renaissance flavour, but the clothes are resolutely modern, almost minimalist in their simplicity. Again, medieval paintings provide the starting point for a period of exhaustive research into various fabric techniques, in the search for ways of giving extra volume and body to larger areas of fabric. Various novel fabrics, like felted wool, are employed. “I didn’t want to make togas or something like that,” says the designer. “I just wanted to get the same visual effect, but using different elements and techniques. In the end, the fabrics gave us that graphic, architectural quality, the same sense of volume, but without resorting to pastiche.”
