Review by :
Paris Fashion Week 2019
Hôtel Le Marois, Paris.
Steven Khalil has presented its new fall-winter 2019-2020 collection “Dame en Fleurs” during the fashion show in Paris. Check out all the looks of Steven Khalil‘s show in pictures.
Featuring colourways of dove and pale pink, cornflower blues to deep jades and dramatic blacks rounding out the palette.
This story explores the anatomy and fragility of flowers- their natural peculiarity and softness, while combining and expressing these notions with a mixture of strength and romanticism. It was Steven’s intention to emulate and convey different flowers in varying stages of bloom- from tightly wrapped buds that hug and wrap the body to blossoms unfurling for a spring morning and fully fledged flowers triumphantly open and joyous.
The woman envisioned to be drawn to and wear pieces from this collection is like so many of the women Steven loves to dress – strong, passionate and confident – but who also likes to express their femininity and understand the power of and look for a dramatic silhouette.
Steven has designed a collection rich with surface detailing and using exclusive embroidery techniques leading to the creation of the final pieces. Each piece is uniquely detailed in its construction while still feeling whole and being a part of the same story. Most of these hand finished and detailed gowns can take from 100-200 hours to design, construct and finish.
This is part of the DNA of the brand. Every collection is different but still special.
Experimenting with layering and creating tufts of raffia that sit against a silver metallic base to amplify the sheen. Combining hand-cut powder pink silk georgette with a fine metallic thread for intricate vine like centres. Some also comprise small bursts of stamen flowers to enhance the original source of inspiration.
Densely embroidered pieces feature that are designed to have a foliage like formation that gradate into smaller individual clusters. Even more texture was explored through the selection of beading in metallic silver, jet black and gunmetal to increase lustre and shine. Deeper and more sumptuous silk velvet is used to enhance the combination of the matte/shine embroidery.
