Paris, France – A surreal, modern approach to fashion is presented for Spring/Summer 2017 by brand Anrealage. This new opus takes feminine wear and juxtaposes it with masculine lines. This creates a story with a happy ending that reaches far beyond compelling fashion making.
The garments look out of this world from thanks to using geometric shapes and clean lines. The dresses have a little naive, even girly touches to them but are taken to a next level by the modern details. The colors are only black and white with many prints used. The rectangles, squares and a few prints create the incredible visual depth. The jackets, pants, skirts, dresses, tops are all in tapered A-line, bell shapes.
The shapes have structure that gleefully make love with the more fluid pieces throughout the collection. This accounts for the successful proportions, which exist thanks to the volumes found in the trousers, the loose tops and sports inspired jackets. The classic black and white stripe and some abstract designs give the sharp, striking effect. The height contrast level reminds of the old school space age vision from old comics and movies. A little bizarre and even inhuman, but still having some gentleness to it.
