Paris, France – This Spring/Summer collection at Talbot Runhof is a strong, nod to the flower power of 70’s children and is aptly named “Flowers Never Fail You”. So here the message is clearly “Create love, not war. Stay strong. Be cool. And it’s too loud, so turn it up more”.
This season the house is using a new jacquard weaving technique to increase the vibrancy of its floral patterns. Taroni silk shantung and silk mousseline combine with tulle produced relaxed, free-flowing pieces. We see these elements come together in the blazers, dresses, trousers, tops and gowns, which all pop to the visual senses. The silks are top-notch and come more to life with the large floral prints on them.
As the collection moves through day wear attire phase, we see seemingly strict tops with interesting variations on the sleeves and with attractive finishings such as a vertical bib flap. While some of the top are cut to midriff length, they are all paired together with straight cut trousers or long skirts. To that add in the stylish jumpsuits. As the collection draws towards its end, we see Talbot Runhof add in beautiful gowns in layers of whispery, delicate and colorful silks.
