Georges Hobeika takes a whirlwind journey through old Spain.
Last night in Paris, the Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika embraced his brand aesthetics as he debuts a gleaming couture collection. Dashing and elegant as always, this year’s collection drew “its vibrant energy from Andalusia’s ornamental traditions”, models pranced in striking dresses filled with crystal embroideries that evoke the decorative mosaics that embellished the insides of the Granada castles.
Inspired by nature, Hobeika sent out festively embellished sculptural gowns, generously pleated dresses, and some with charming capes and boleros in refined details. There were silk trousers in blush-pink coordinated with fancy mules, voluptuous dresses in burgundy constructed from heavy beading. One can say, that the entire collection had a rad-carpet feel, from the long slit dresses in electric blue to floral off-the-shoulder body-con designs and the many looks that favored the boat-cut with aerial lace or sheer sleeves.
