Initial reaction:

Rock chick anti-summer in fur and leather.

References:

Paris insouciance and rock n’ roll; the unchanging design identity of Zadig & Voltaire.

Model behaviour:

Hanne Gaby opening the show in a silk black dress with metallic trim, monochrome shaggy fur jacket and single crucifix earring.

Silhouette:

Loose sheer lace and chain embellished trousers worn under shorts, slinky figure hugging jersey dresses, and lots of skin, be it acres of leg in tiny skirts or tuxedos worn with nothing underneath.

Stand out look:

Silver chain mail knit gym shorts worn with a white lace top, white tuxedo and silver boots, a knit silver scarf held loose and left to drag behind.

Fabrication:

Large lace patterns with plenty of sheer on long dragging cardigans, silver chain knit and, of course, plenty of black leather

Unexpected details:

Fringing hanging from every look, in leather and lace, and the loose leather lacing up the seam of a pair of trousers on Jamie Bochert.

Prints:

Faded grey snakeskin, a camouflage of gold and black sequins.

Colour impressions:

Cherry red made an unexpected appearance in fur coats, fisherman knits and a trench coat.

How they wore it: 

With thick grey marl socks in their leather boots, and hair over one eye.
