Paris, France – Georges Hobeika shows his work in Paris this season by opening the catwalk presentation with a selection of cocktail dresses. Each has been cut above the knees. They have structure thanks to the material in which they have been created. Not all have plunging V-panel removed back. While some have fine embroideries, not all are sleeveless.
From the opening section of the collection, Hobeika introduced his Spring/Sumer 2015 color palette, which include pastel mint, pink, yellow and white. These colors are very well together when one adds to them the Swarovski crystal studded micro-thin belts with little bows.
The couturier appears to be snubbing the growing trend in which many couturiers seem to be return to draping. No matter because he does include a nice amount of exquisite gowns with capes and cocktail dresses with micro-capes. He further spoils us with his use of lace to create full gowns. In this it is easy to see how few are they that could do it better than Georges Hobeika.
