Guy Laroche Woman Autumn-Winter 2016 – Grey and black were the colours of choice at Guy Laroche in a collection where the devil was in the details.
Aquatic and gold coloured floral designs were intricately stitched onto many of the pieces, showcasing the subtle skill undertaken to make each look unique. Aside from the stitching, a maximum of two colours, and normally just the one, were used, directing the eye specifically to the structure and shape of each garment.
Ruffles and pleats were key components to the pieces too, providing detailing on the hips in a peplum style as well as over the breasts, adding to the three dimensional feel of the clothing.
Other details such as the elasticated waist and hems of the skirts reinforced the sense that fit as well as detailing were integral to the designs, giving them a strength derived from their simplicity.
Statement puffed sleeves also transformed the models’ silhouettes. As well as providing additional detailing, the defining feature broadened the shoulders significantly and gave the repeated suggestions of formal office wear a high end edge.
