Christophe Josse: Haute Couture show Spring/Summer 2018 (with interview)

Designer: Christophe JosseInspiration : a bucolic and pastoral vision, imagines by Christophe Josse, who made his big return to couture after several years away by presenting 15 models under the vaults of The Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine in Paris. Collection: a generous and elegant line based around earthy and sandy tones. The key piece is the long rounded skirt, in chalk, alabaster, natural linen or even a model woven with silk and linen threads and embroidered with golden threads. The dresses are all delicate with fringing, golden threads, or covered in silk. Crochet detailing contrasts against a draped taffeta sheath dress. To note: the blown glass in the jewelry and also used as decoration on the espadrilles. Interview: There was a desire to go with the essential, without deviating onto another path and so that translated into a desire to use quite simple fine materials contrasted with materials that are a lot more couture and usually used in couture but we deflected in washing them, in scrubbing them with other treatments which allowed us to obtain a more modern approach, more contemporary and everything mounted with gold, blown glass or brass. There was a desire to have bucolic silhouettes, fantasy peasants, farmers, shepherds or a progression through the world of different elements which once they’re mixed and twisted, finally make a whole.Music from the show (for use only in context of the show, under cover of the right to information)
