Turandot, La Sonnambula, Tosca: French haute couture designer Stephane Rolland takes us into a lyrical world where every note flows with grace and freshness. His Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2016 Collection presents a woman at the peak of her femininity and brimming with sensuality. Giacomo Puccini, Richard Wagner, Vincenzo Bellini and Giuseppe Verdi would certainly have loved to see their opera heroines wearing these magnificent haute couture gowns.

One credo: The pleats, rhythmic, sunny, crinkled or cracked, highlighting the body and sculptural as a ball gown. The silhouette is at once gracious, fluid, and almost fragile, like a star of the Garnier opera house, in thin crepe, white, black or nude, adorned with clouds of crinkled organza or white feathers that accentuate every step.

Last but not least, the embroideries vie to surpass the sparkle of the most beautiful jewellery to be found on Place Vendôme.
