Victorian Affair Debut in Paris’ couture fashion week, January 2017. Previous evening couture wear collections: Nigh Flare Black Pearl Moonstruck
Victorian Affair P a r i s J a n u a r y 2 017
Grand Palais “Victorian Affair” was inspired by the Victorian era in England and by its parallel phase in france, “Le Belle Epoque”. These periods were characterized by changes and innovations in various fields, such as the Industrial Revolution. The day to day atmosphere was recognized with optimism and national security. In this context our collection is undoubtedly and proudly characterizing the Victorian era’s fashion, with a range of signature Victorian motifs dresses that involves as well, modern, innovative techniques, lines and figures to fit the contemporary fashion lover. You’ll find a handful of high collars, medallions, puffed sleeves, dramatic cuts, special adorned corsets, extremely long trains (1-3 feet!) and skirts rich in fabrics, mixture of laces, ornaments and careful details. We also gathered a few “tea gowns” inspired gowns which are sheer and transparent, and gowns which are solely dedicated to designer JeanMarjane Lacroix, that challenged the victorian style and made a change of how we perceive femininity through clothes. The color pallette is of deep colors such as Black, “shades of Black”, warm Gold and Bronze, Hot Red, various antique Pinks and smokey Purples, most of which are hand dyed to emphasize the depth of the century. We have integrated fabric dyeing techniques and implementation embossed silicone, alongside the use of antique, original embroidery, from the 1890’s, made by Lesage.
Cabinet De Curiosite P a r i s J u l y 2 017
Lycée Henri IV Before modern science, specimens of all types went undefined, collected loosely in cabinet de curiosités; A veritablewonderland, these collections were composed of elements of the sea and wonders of the Earth. Science sought to organize the chaos, aiming to categorize each and every new discovery and place them in pristineglass boxes. Today, with much already labeled and learned, we're set to create our own cabinets of curiosity, and hearken back to the joy of discovery that once was. This season, Galia Lahav Couture Evening couples clinical inspirations with innovation, and employs new techniques with an inherent savoir-faire, for a range of pieces that hint at these otherworldly wonders. The designs portray a mix of elements drawn from the ocean’s depth, as well as a variety of artistic object. Galia Lahav seek to blur boundaries, redefine terminology, and reconsider fashion's key categories, while maintaining a logical flow between casual garments, cocktail dresses and luxurious gowns. Our collection of curiosities includes unconventional silhouettes– from voluminous trousers and billowing sleeves to new takes on pleating. Expect colors such as deep blues, hues of poppy, soft nudes and touches of elemental metallics. Expect the unexpected.
Don't Call Me Sugar P a r i s J u l y 2 017
Palais des Beaux-Arts Empowering the female body and spirit is what inspired Galia Lahav & Sharon Sever in developing Don’t Call Me Sugar 2018. The collection is designed for the feminine, glamorous and effortlessly cool girl. Galia Lahav, for all women, redefines the term ‘sensuality’, by glittering elegance of silhouettes, plunging necklines, cutouts, shocking colors, all used with high-end fabrics and details as key. For today, what we wear won’t wear us, but will be revived by our personas. Don’t Call Me Sugar includes looks for the modern and charismatic, young woman who wants to transcend trends and create her own statement. You’ll find a range of lengths, brining the strapless minis back, asymmetrical & dramatic necklines, plunging V’s, cutouts and sexy backs in glittering tones of silver, burgundy, blue and black. All garments are handmade with an uncompromising sense of style. Much emphasis was put on a light, effortless yet daring look and also on the details; “Light like this does not exist, but we wish it did. We wish the sun could make us young and beautiful, we wish our clothes could glisten and ripple against our skins, most of all, we wish that everyone we knew could be brightened simply by our looking at them...” - Susanna Kaysen To Be Worn With Charisma
