Paris, France – Dice Kayek is another of those houses that is working to modernize the closed ranks of haute couture. Under the careful stroke of her design pencils, artistic director Ece Ege takes us closer to a world in which the discipline is more than just art. It is a living, breathing and organic organism that is subject to evolution as it meets the growing contemporary needs and tastes of today’s haute couture clientele.
A little more than three seasons ago when the Fédération Française de la Couture du Prêt-à-Porter des Couturiers and Créateurs de Mode announced the arrival of the Dice Kayek house on the official calendar of houses that were to present their new haute couture collections, NO ONE could be more happy than this journalist. I knew that the house’s penchant for pure lines, interesting volumes and attention to details would be a natural fit for the the world of haute couture. Since that time the Ege has never disappointed and continues to impress us all.
The new Fall Winter 2015/16 collection is replete with the traditional codes of the house. They include the bubble shapes, short cuts, purity of design and artistic flair. They have been combined with lace, colorful embroideries, sequins, strict styling and rare prints. The end result is an expression of beautiful wearable art. The house has excelled in its daywear that includes beautiful tuxedo inspirations and large coats.
