Stéphane Rolland ‘s 2012 Autumn / Winter had a sense of movement and fluidity that still inspires design lovers.
Fashion and design often go back in time to take ideas from the early generations’ sense of style and living. Adding a few more turns to it, designers all around the world manage to transform old school fashion with modern and innovative approaches.
And that’s precisely the kind of inspiration we take in our furniture designs. One of Luxxu‘s biggest goals is to create luxury items that combine traditional, classic design components with modern details, so that, in the end results in a timeless composition.
Today we felt the need to go back to Stéphane Rolland ‘s incredible Fall/Winter collection 5 years ago to find the perfect design inspiration.
In this collection Stéphane Rolland not only was inspired by the history and traditional practices of Asia such as Hanfu kimonos and origami, but also by David Downtown’s illustrations and Maria Pergay’s works.
The dresses create sinuous forms over the body thanks to their linear outlines, drapes and ruffles. Precious details like metal appliqué and Swarovski crystals also exist to enhance the luxurious silhouette.
The cocktail dresses were usually mid-length, yet the ball gowns and clocks were designed to be long with train.
Colors such as black, white, violet, green, yellow, blue and saffron were the center of the attention in this 2012 runaway.
Materials like taffeta, silk, cotton, wool, sequins and of course Swarovski crystals were used as the main base for these stunning high couture dresses.
In this collection, movement and a sense of fluidity was created with dazzling ruffles and drapes that were designed over straight lines.
Accessories included shoes with grosgrain and satin straps and metal heels.
