Paris: Orphelie Klere and Francois Alary’s Devastee line is one of the more youthful and independent collections of Paris fashion week, each season offering a flirtatious but refined exercise in black and white separates. For F/W 10 the palette remained stark, but greater dimension was achieved via mixed prints and graphics, and a wide range of floral, animal prints, check and trompe l’oeil skeletons. Shorts were a versatile element, styled with tights and flat brogues, while cropped jackets maintained a young silhouette. Intarsia knits are a key trend for this market, here combined with printed linings, a clashing patterns within one garment, and a demure yet body-skimming fit. Devastee proves that black and white can lend a grown-up look to Junior fashion without becoming boring.
