Although all main fashion weeks are over, we continue to introduce you to new spring-summer collections and future trends. Guy Laroche‘s collection was created by Adam Andrascik and it is not as big as we used to see on catwalks the previous years and consists of just 25 looks. But sometimes, as we know, less is more.
Guy Laroche, a famous French fashion brand, by Andrascik told its own story of “a new modernity through a rebellious simplicity, shown in Palais De Tokyo in September in Paris. The collection was inspired by the author Ottessa Moshfegh and the early work of film director Sofia Coppola.
Quite monochromatic black and white collection with some grey metallic shades was blended with brighter colours such as lemon yellow, sand with a bit of blue tints. A noticeable red choker accentuated long necks of the models and became an intense colour accent of summer outfits.
A confrontation of different materials is shown in the collection. Iridescent fabrics, which played the main part of the new collection, were shaded by classic pieces such as white wide leg trousers and camel trench coats. Cropped black leather jackets were in pair with midi weightless dresses while A-line skirts were composed with simple black tops.
Adam Andrascik’s fourth collection is characterised by it’s well-made simplicity. High-waist trousers and knitted tank tops, mini skirts (some of them even transparent) and figure-hugging dresses these items are made with an idea of a modern and confident woman in mind. The woman who bets on high-quality outfits avoiding to be boring.
As for accessories, it wasn’t only leather sandals completing all catwalk looks. Some of the models wore anklets – though small, still a standout detail.
Embroideries of rings and ball chain are reminiscent of a wayward youth – a little bit rebellious yet chic and classy. The modern woman in spring-summer season expresses her freedom through confident nonconformity.
