Haute Couture AW14/15: Reflection

Haute Couture AW14/15 collections came to a close at Paris Fashion Week. The week brought substance, structure and garments that had been years in the making to the runway. Serkan Cura and Ralph & Russo, two of the designers who presented their collections on Day 5, showed the diversity and quality Paris is known for.

Serkan Cura presented a collection, which brought his passion for the corset and feathers to life. Components of the collection, and the materials the garments were constructed from, were dictated by nature. Waiting on key features for 3-4 years, such as the features used in the Golden Pheasant Dress, Cura’s pieces are a reflection of the passion and artistry behind his label. All pieces are constructed in Cura’s Paris atelier, by hand, and do not leave the space, until they are complete. The corset has been an internal part of Cura’s design vision from the age of 13 when his first simple plastic corset was constructed. To Cura the corset “redefines a woman” and is an element of fashion that is “always present”.

Ralph & Russo turned to interior photographer Massimo Listri, whose sense of perspective and devotion to detail inspired the collection. Volume and structure along with tradition and modernity were key components of the collection, with each bend and curve echoing the essence of Listri portraits. With homage to the extraordinary details and light captured, the embellishment is painstakingly fine with the savviest “petites mains” embedding astonishing adornment into exquisitely hand-made garments.
