Georges Hobeika couture collection for spring/summer 2016 is a glowing tribute to nature’s gift of regeneration, spreading its message of beauty across cultures and beyond borders. Floral patterns, bright embroideries, bouquets of sparkling crystals, delicately coloured sheaves, droplets of shiny pearls, plumes of glittering feathers and matte and glossy berries are highlighted, while all evolving into modern cuts of aerial and elegant dresses.
A honeycomb pattern of laser-cut lace or structured tulle reflects the savoir faire of the finest couture workshops, transcending the nobility of a long, evanescent figure. Flowing capes and trains exalt the absolute femininity of sculptural sheath dresses. The petals of a skirt compliment a trouser suit with the playfulness of a blooming bouquet. Works of authentic craftsmanship: accessories bring forth the feel of the countryside, while still incorporating an essence of glamour through shimmering and brilliantly enamelled jewels.
Subtly, the colour palette gains momentum in dialogue with gorgeous fabrics. Pink tulle covers almond green muslin in a mysterious veil; a purple gradient warms the shimmer of ice-blue; a cameo of peaches, apricots, tangerines and melons blends into a fruity and delicious chromatic symphony. Silk crepe, ziberline, lace and organza sumptuously translate a message of hope and the hidden secret behind this spring thistle flowering.
