21ST-CEN­TURY RO­MAN­TIC

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Style -

Yes, you can still be­lieve that fash­ion is a bed of roses, but the flow­ers will be dig­i­tally en­hanced. That was the se­cret be­hind the up­date of Givenchy’s hip­pie gyp­sies, where Ric­cardo Tisci showed us mid-calf skirts ei­ther frilled or slen­der and sheer. A twist of le­mon sharp­ened Saint Lau­rent’s de­lib­er­ately sloppy mish­mash of clothes that were a Paris-LA combo. More whim­si­cal ro­man­ti­cism ap­peared in Dior’s thin clumps of em­broi­dered flow­ers, with the de­signer Raf Si­mons bring­ing a pu­ri­tan aes­thetic to pret­ti­ness.

HOT DATE

True, there are times when you just want to show off, project your per­son­al­ity, and get no­ticed. That Tom Ford Chi­nese em­peror coat, per­haps, with con­trast­ing em­broi­dered boots? Or Tom’s an­i­mal prints for prowl­ing around? More 1980s shout-outs at Bal­main, where the de­signer Olivier Rouste­ing might have been in di­a­pers dur­ing Madonna’s early der­ring-dos, but he can still cut a mean sharp shoul­der.
