Guy Laroche


Paris: Marcel Marongiu’s severe 70s silhouettes were a means of exploring a variety of texture, from wet-look patent leather to wooly Mongolian lamb to agitated sequins. Rigid straight skirts and sturdy sweaters with dramatic leg of mutton sleeves were countered with weightless items like fluid silk pants, diaphanous organza blouses and draped dresses in a cellophane-like material. Sequins played a major role in the collection — slouchy separates were done in dense sequins for a formal-casual play, while slinky dresses had a uniquely distressed look, which came from sequins ruffled in every direction. — Anna Jane Davis
