THE HAUTE COUTURE SUIT

Luna Bijl opens the show wearing a pomegranate tweed ensemble. The iconic tailored jacket, lightly trapeze in shape, reveals rounded shoulders. The front of it harbors two discreet pockets in which models can on occasion slip their hands into. These "smiling pockets" illustrate "the new attitude" for Haute Couture as imagined by Karl Lagerfeld. The straight skirt presents slits in curved lines recalling the rounded cuts of the front of the vest. Pearl-brocade and sequined ankle boots complete the look.

FRENCH FORMAL GARDEN

Echoing 17th Century ponds and groves, the nef of the Grand Palais is transformed into a verdant landscape for the Spring‑Summer 2018 Haute Couture show. An alcove of leafy and wooden plaits surrounds the fountain, elevated at center stage. Beneath the arcade of this junction that are punctuated by the four entrance lodges, the models cross paths. Guests can watch them from the benches on which they sit.
