Julie de Libran Fall Winter 2023/24 Haute Couture collection during Paris Couture Week.
It all started with a desire to present my work in a different way. To celebrate life, the younger generation and women who fully embody the outfits they wear in front of you. My dbutantes are not beginners. They embody my vision of couture at its most noble, lively and democratic.
All is illusion. The taffetas are featherweights and the outfits far more structured than they appear, however fluid they may be. In the end, superimpositions hide their game, as transparency is at the source of this collection where lace and neo-corsets express themselves freely. It's an elegance that finds its source in real life, where clothes live unfettered and in motion.
Lightweight, rhinestone knitwear operates like new-age armour. Sequins and poplin are happily married, resurrecting the codes of men's boxer shorts in the light of this joyful femininity. The leggings and bralette duo lose their casualness when integrated with refinement into an evening gown designed to exult. Lastly, the tuxedo jacket, more fitted than usual, lives out its idyll with swimsuits whose destiny is to be composed.
The brilliance of black and ivory, signature navy blue, the softness of matte nude and a hint of colour for a few retina-stimulating pieces. Enjoy!
