GUY LAROCHE Show- Women's Collection Autumn/Winter 2018/19 in Paris (with interview)

Artistic Director: Richard RenéInspiration: the designer delivers his second collection for the house and chose a white page as his source of inspiration, on which everything is allowed, be it written or drawn, everything comes to resemble Raw Art of which Guy Laroche was a fervent collector. Collection: fabric rectangles used on the front, becoming both dresses and capes. The line is minimal, tapered, and black & white dominate. The effect of black pencils strokes add to the depth of the coats or the white dresses. Tailored trousers seem strict yet feminine at the same time. Ski trousers are proposed, among others, in duck blue, whilst purple and a touch of golf bring a certain softness. To note: The backs of the pieces are all very worked as Guy Laroche liked to do, the asymmetry of the dresses, the play on lengths and makeup which use the idea of pencil strokes. Interview with Richard René: I began with this rectangular white page for the cut of all the clothes and the graphic art is based around Raw Art and the traces of embroidery marks with metal sticks, just like making matchstick sculptures in Raw Art, with inky colours, of purple and ink blue. The backs are very worked much like the backs of Guy Laroche, so backed or backless, we don’t have to show the skin for it to be a surprise, the garment is automatically a surprise.
