LE JUMPSUIT
Paris: Anne Valerie Hash downsized her show this season and invited press into a more intimate catwalk, in a slightly rundown setting. Models walked along a sparkly wall with an antique cracked mirror. The designer returned to her roots of construction/deconstruction and presented a limited collection of only jumpsuits — her trademark. The show was all about contrasts, as the notes stated: “Rigour & nonchalance, structure & fluidity, an asymmetric harmony”. The pieces, in black or white, had strong lines that were inspired by a man’s wardrobe, but were softened with delicate laces and organza overlays, juxtaposed to reveal skin through transparencies. “Women love my jumpsuits; a jumpsuit is more cool and relaxed than a dress – it has so much more attitude,” said Anne. Standout pieces included a style suspended from a corset, with a draped asymmetric sash floating down one side, a mash-up between a dress and a romper; a more covered-up version played on a man’s tuxedo with intriguing lace detailing. Anne has a profound knowledge of the female form and uses it to design clothes that show off the womanly shape in an exquisite way. “Jumpsuits are for a woman that wants relaxed elegance and ease,” said Anne. All the models were styled with trainers, adding nonchalance to the elegant looks. —Celia Ingesson
