Fashion Week Paris Haute Couture, AW 14-15 - Atelier Versace

fswpa10.02com

Atelier Versace with fresh allure is at the heart of Haute Couture. Long slashed-front dresses have one leg covered as if a trouser for contemporary attitude.

Tailoring is cut away, such as a one-sided jacket held to the body by gold-buckled corsetry, or skirts peeled back to reveal the hip.

Thin strips of vinyl embroidered onto a transparent base create graphic shapes in a sheer coat or extravagant gown.

A new approach to Couture, T-shirt shapes are cut and rolled to create dramatic effects and reveal the skin beneath on a variety of dresses.

Opulent blue fur coats include frayed organza patchwork of mink with crystal metal mesh, exclusively created by Swarovski for this collection. Others are made from fox stitched with vinyl and leather.

Embroideries are in a degrade of colour, while semi-transparent nylon is knitted with pockets of crystal metal mesh to sit sinuous on the skin.

Voluminous ball gowns of double duchesse silk coated with silicon have been shaped freely on the body for the spirit of couture today.

“Atelier Versace is true couture. I wanted to celebrate construction and deconstruction, provoking by taking away fabric, to make couture modern.”
