Music, a manifesto for freedom, a transcript for personal evasion elevating the soul, body, and mind. This season’s show Marine Serre curated a journey into Love and Rhythms.
As a transgressive Berghain-like experience – the place of worship for techno aficionados, a time capsule where you end up leaving 3 days later – the French designer set the tone on music influence. The rave decor, an ornament of iron barricades, plunges the audience into darkness. The singular runway cast features an eclectic group of models and eleven music artists: Teyana Taylor, Miguel, Aron Piper, Sevdaliza, Noah Cyrus, Yseult, Brooke Candy, Anetha, Pink Siifu, John Glacier, and Aime Simone.
Debussy’s ‘Clair de Lune’ tempo resonates as a sentimental promenade on the catwalk begins with Midsommar-inspired ensembles. Crochet is in the air – the house’s new signature – elevates the art of knitting into a luxurious creative form. I know you’re tryna reach out to your grandma on that scarf she made you 10 decades ago. She moved on.
New York native Teyana Taylor captured the brand essence and vision for conscious fashion on the runway – half of this collection was crafted from upcycled deadstock. The artist parades in a dazzling and vivid patchwork graphic micro dress. Bombastic.
Marine Serre consolidates her exploration and interest in contrasted / conflictual aesthetics. Denim is remixed and pimped into iconic shapes with a fresh canvas of deadstock fabric. Mad crush for this season’s hottest trend – the hibiscus flower prints- transposed on cropped overcoats and more casually catwoman-lookalike attires.
The last heartbeat echoed, punctuating Miguel’s dapper brocade silk co-ord suit. Marine Serre’s hybrid megamix parenthesis comes to an end – we’re flaunting.
