Paris: Cédric Charlier sent forth a Spring collection with a dynamic combination of tailoring and feminine layering. Exposed basting stitches, fringe and feathers produced tactile surface interest and a deconstructed aesthetic. Charlier played with colour by using bold stripes and multi-layering, adding pops of contrasting shades which created dimension. Asymmetrical foulard hemlines cut from silky summer weight fabrics created fluid movement. –Deirdre Pérez
