Face in the crowd

Al­ber El­baz and Lu­cas Ossendri­jver de­signed each of their pieces to match the per­son­al­ity of the model who wore it in Paris. Their point? To cre­ate a per­son­alised col­lec­tion that rebels against the “anonymity of a world glob­alised by the in­ter­net.” An­i­mal prints were mixed with mes­meris­ing colours, such as a cerise leather jacket worn over a shirt with pink tiger stripes and green and pink zig- zags. The som­bre part of the show re­vealed a new sil­hou­ette for coats: the ki­mono. Made from a sin­gle piece of fab­ric, the lined trench coat came in beige and black. The clos­ing pieces were ab­stract: shirts and tops dis­played mono­chrome Pi­casso- like em­blems. Per­haps the point was ironic— face­less images in a col­lec­tion made to be per­sonal.
