It's in the Details: Stephane Rolland Haute Couture 2011-12

The details that made up the dresses at Stèphane Rolland’s collection are swoon worthy, at times more than the outfit itself but that then is preference territory. Like Armani Privé Mr. Rolland had some japanese infusion, mostly obi's knotts and armors. A hit for me was the fact embellishment was focused on twisting fabric or adding sculpted metal rather than the usual paillettes and crystals.

As a whole the presentation made me think of space operas which explain why I went for neon’s and darkness in my illustration.

The styling had a futuristic vein and the makeup winked at the fabulous ladies of Dynasty/Dallas. I’m not a fan of that purple lipstick but for the purpose of this runway it works. Would you wear this lip color?

Glove love!

BTW: all pics -but the illustration- tnx to and Mateo Volta via

I definitely see the futuristic vibe in this. And I also get a distinct 80s feel from it - in a Grace Jones kind of way. Not a fan of the lipstick either, but the knitwear details are incredible. I wonder how comfortable those metal elements are to wear?

P.S. You can now also follow Haute World on Twitter @haute_world. Hope to see you there!

Amazing dresses so superior, edgy - love the collection! But i think maybe the makeup is too dark and takes away from the designs :(
