Christophe Josse Haute Couture AW18-19
Christophe Josse, a former assistant at Louis Féraud, is a fashion designer who draws inspiration from 16th century French art.
Josse's spring-summer 18/19 haute couture show was staged in a room full of art from his student days. When the music began and the models moved slowly down the runway wearing oversize coats with frills and elongated necks, we were instantly enchanted. Josse is known for designing a feminine silhouette and using white for most of his collections. In this collection he included large embroideries belted with jewels. The accessories were Nordic inspired designs, mixed with 16th century French art. The collection featured satin, silk prints and interesting collars on vertiginous dresses creating an elegant silhouette.
IRK found Christophe Josse's vision of the modern woman elegant and astonishing with qualities that were also tender and romantic. We admired his clean palate and creative use of texture.
