Cédric Charlier

INTO THE FUTURE
Paris: Before debuting his namesake collection for fall, Cédric Charlier designed sweet, print-heavy collections for Cacharel. With his angular, futuristic spring collection, he seemed to be trying to distance himself from his previous work. The show opened with stiff, white versions of the classic motorcycle jacket and continued with laser-cut leathers and an edgy texture print whose colors echoed the models’ aggressive red and teal eye makeup. Charlier unfortunately became repetitive at points, showing about five variations on the same draped red dress. But, aside from that mistake, the collection was successful, demonstrating that Charlier has much more to offer than just florals and femininity. –Joanna Manganaro
