Appointed Artistic Director of the Parisian Haute Couture fashion house earlier this year, Daniel Roseberry’s first independent collection was highly anticipated.
And for the Schiaparelli show, he took centre stage sitting at an art desk as the lights raised – headphones on and head down as models began to circle around him, moving as delicately as the music played gently.
The collection mixed high glamour with formality, as models donned highly embellished caps and sheer embellished bodies under black blazers buttoned under the breast. These were worn with ankle strap stockings in sheer, laced and gem-adorned varieties.
With tight-leg trousers being teamed with billowing fabric cuts that tucked in at the waist and left a flowing train flowing behind it, and gem-encrusted bandeaus worn with off-shoulder puffed up sleeves, shapes were contrasted and unbalanced.
But as the tempo of the dream-like sequence began to pick up, model’s picks up the pace allowing for more impact at the fabric of black silky gowns followed behind them.
Glamour was added to dark-hued suits with embellished scarfs and jewel tassels, while model’s eyes were hidden under loose fabric hats. The show finished by bringing explosive colour onto the stage – from rainbow designs to neon yellow.
