GUSTAVOLINS – PARIS F/W 2011 FASHION SHOW
Collection 017 from Gustavo Lins focuses on traditional couture techniques and mingles them with luxury fabrics and materials such as silk jersey, japanese crêpe, cashmere, and mink.
The Asian inspiration is undeniable, and the touches of braided copper and mink and fox furs were warm enhancements in this collection with a predominately dark and cool color palette. The printed silks are stunning and seem to float on the body – a Gustavolins specialty. With low dipping necklines and sheer slips, there are elements of subtle celebration of the female form.
The long and flowing silhouettes that came from the bias cut dresses bring the traditions of couture to the forefront and celebrates the art of crafting garments. To complement this theme, video artist Federico Cimatti created a short film for the collection revealing their construction that screened during the runway show.
