Paris, France – Where haute couture meets prêt-à-porter that is where you will find Talbot Runhof. And that would be the precise description of perfect balance that the house has found for its Fall/Winter 2017/18 collection.
Designed by Johnny Talbot and Adrian Runhof, who have successfully made a big name for themselves with glamorous cocktail and evening dresses, the collection is composed of gorgeous velvet, sequins, embroidered and satin garments. The way pieces drape, fall, reflect and respond to other fabrics is simply impeccable. Like in their previous collections, we witness in this new body of work the highly complicated cuts, unusual seam placements and patterned pieces that have been skillfully fused together to create the most interesting collection. The silhouette is feminine, sexy and edgy.
The looks that definitely stand out are the red velvet bustier overall with black guipure molton sequin trim; the black guipure molton sequin backless gown; the black and ivory double satin gown with black net underskirt; the black double satin gown; the black velvet and satin top with olive distressed and embroidered combat trousers; and finally the orange velvet dress with rhinestone attached skirt. It is more than noticeable that materials represent an absolute priority for Talbot Runhof. Aside from elegant materials, the duo also used high quality jersey and cotton for more basic pieces.
During the last couple of fashion week seasons, subtle political statements have been generating some serious curiosity. Talbot Runhof joined the club of awareness raising designers. In doing so, they decided to level-up with asymmetric turtle neck tops decorated with “Unpresidented”, “Persist”, “Sad!” and “Lie to me” statements. We get the hint, don’t worry!
