Showcasing his debut collection for Guy Laroche, newly appointed creative director Adam Andrascik (replacing Marcel Marongiu) gave us a dark romanticized vision of the future with a mixture of textures.
The main focus of the collection was on the way Andrascik played with a number of textures and brought a sexy deconstructed aesthetic to the label. Futuristic feels were featured in the form of a navy ribbed sweater with a wave of gold metallic down the front paired with a velvet skirt and ribbed knit dresses coated in waves of silver at the sides or the centre.
Skirts were given movement with multiple slits and a tastefully tattered vibe. Black and white printed leather motifs with gold calligraphy symbols gave the collection a youthful element, a style we saw a hint of in his SS15 collection for his eponymous label, which he has put on hold to focus on Guy Laroche. Black belts with silver buckles cinched the waists of the models giving off a feminine silhouette.
Oxblood patent dress and trench coat with pinstripe lapels vamped up the collection. Black midi dresses had an oriental feel, garments emblazoned with golden metallic Chinese symbols, the sun and starbursts.
The collection was finished off with a few black velvet numbers embellished with silver fabric that had angular allure.
Models walked down the catwalk at Grand Palais with slicked back hair and metallic eyes.
Andrascik’s mission for the collection was to take a name that everyone knows but no one can describe and spin it into something relevant, and that he did.
