"Julien Fournié's S/S 2013 Couture Collection - Written by: Chloé M. Rash
Dear Shaded Viewers,
The cold stone walls of the Cité de l'architecture et du patrimoine functioned as the backdrop for Julien Fournié's vibrant, futuristic collection that merged various textures and prints to redefine the couture wearing woman. Fournie’s throng of modern garments and the models’ black geometric headpieces suggested that the contemporary couture woman can wear a box, but also, think outside of it.
The syncopated collection was composed mainly of black and white fabrics that were interwove with silver undertones to generate a more Jovian look. Fournie’s tailored blouses and constructed blazers were interbred with fluid gowns mounted with weightless fabric that kissed the runway as it danced by.
The show’s highlights included: a pregnant model who glided down the runway sans footwear, a draping fur cape that would give Cruella Deville a run for her money, and Fournie's final bow, in which he displayed just as much energy as his spirited collection." .
