Paris, France – Dice Kayek presented a collection of beautiful dresses for the Spring/Summer 2015 season. In the house’s second appearance on the haute couture calendar, it has more than confirmed its reality as one of the new darlings of the genre.
Titled “DOLLHOUSE”, the new collection is about taking the disarticulated dolls of Hans Bellmer, Annette Messager and Louise Bourgeois and giving them an interesting purpose. They are made extremely sexy. This is achieved through a play on cut, construction and final fit. Silk, gabardine and crepe bring them all to life.
The collection has many kimono inspired cuts. The colors include beautiful heather, black, white, pastel pink and cerulean. The shapes are cut above the mid thigh. And volume has an important roll as expected.
The collection opens with a divine asymmetrically cut jacket dress. Done in navy blue silk gabardine, the dress set the tone for the sensory pleasures to come. Each look to follow is as remarkable or even more so than the one that preceded it. Among the most noticeable one find pleated, asymmetrically cut dress in black and white and with its skilled play on geometric forms; the twill weaved red silk satin dress with sleeves created with origami inspirations, and the look composed of the Capri style pants in black crepe worn with an evening cape with hand embroideries.
And of course, the sumptuous, sleeveless jumpsuit in black and with an open V-back is in the mix for best look consideration.
