Paris Fashion Stories, Episode 8: Experimentation
Ready-to-wear, autumn-winter 2019/2020. It was one of Karl Lagerfeld's favorite sayings: "fashion is ice-cold or burning-hot, lukewarm water is out of place". Two fashion brands illustrate this well.
American designer Rick Owens pursues a subversive approach: radical fashion without compromise. His collection refers to desert people. The crazy makeup is designed by make-up artist Salvia.
A second fashion house specializing in experimentation is Y/Project, led by Belgian designer Glenn Martens. Irano-Dutch singer Sevda Alizadeh, aka Sevdaliza, closes the show wearing a voluminous dress. Martens braids faux leathers and plays with proportions. An explosive episode.
