This summer, the most spectacular location for a couture show was chosen by Julien Fournié. He presented his haute couture collection Fall/Winter 2014/15 at the Oratoire du Louvre, a mythical protestant temple in Paris. I loved the atmosphere, especially the religious and historic ambiance. The classical music with a modern touch was a dream. “First Impulse” by Julien Fournié is a beautiful collection that portrays sorceresses in essential cuts, printed thorns or spiky long necklaces, which they consider as talismans.
“I’ve been thinking about the precise elegance of Maria Casarès in the 1945 movie by Robert Bresson ‘Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne’. How could I render the charm printed on film in black and white, and integrate it to the necessary colors of real life?”, says Julien Fournié. He also took inspiration from “German expressionism, and particularly in some works by painter Otto Dix, in the way he put colors side by side to create emotions”.
In contrast to the arcanes of blacks, solid colors, inlays of brocade, bakelite embroideries illustrate the eternal struggle between mystery and shimmer, innocence and malice, Good and Evil.
The nude make-up and the aristocratic hairstyling with sophisticated chignons gave the models a perfect noble touch.
