Paris, France – Showing this year in Paris with a fresh perspective is the Tel Aviv-based designer, Alon Livne. For Spring/Summer 2017 he presents a collection dominated by his attraction for leather, sheer materials and an understanding of contemporary excitement.
Alon Livne has prepared a Spring/Summer 2017 that includes architectural shapes, waves, angles and a bit of exaggerated volumes. This latter element is not only found in the corp of the top portion of the cuts, but also in the sleeves. They are shaped in the materials that include colorful leathers, chiffons, sequins and lurex. All save the sleeveless two-piece, ensemble in metallic gray and with amply cut trousers, the collection exclusively includes only dresses.
The whole affair has a hint of the wild extravagances that defined some of the most remarkably wild and exciting energy that pervaded some of the greatest fashions of the last 20th Century. But sans épaulettes !!!
