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?
