Paris, France – The archduke of haute couture, Stéphane Rolland, presents a splendid collection that takes us on a veritable visit of his style DNA. With sumptuous fabrics, three-dimensional volumes and his irreproachable pure lines, the result is an intoxicating tour de force of exquisite imagery.
Nothing can be more pleasing on the eye than watching an elegant woman move through space and time. That pleasure to the senses can be heightened as she does so in one of the creations from Rolland’s new Fall Winter 2015/16 collection. Her movement is embellished by the composition of raw gazar, silicone, crepe, etc. that are used to form the slender silhouettes of long sheath dresses, gowns and jumpsuits.
In addition to the kimono cape dresses, Rolland also includes waistcoats, capes and full-movement corolla skirts. He uses his metallic gold and silver to add to his preferred elements of Art Deco into the silhouettes.
And by adding prairie-green and caramel into his general color palette of white, sand and black, his work results in beauty and glamour enough for the red carpet, while being dignified enough for a thorough study in a museum exhibition on the nature of fashion art !
