Extravagant and yet chic, here are the two best words to describe this collection. The 3000 hours the designer spent working on this show gave birth to the longest runway of this fashion week, closing the event with one of the best performance.
Every detail was sophisticated, from the salt flooring which let out a thick cloud of smoke when the lights were turned on, to the futuristic hair style, almost Tim Burtonian.
Three major colors dominated the collection: white black and red, used in a pure and bright way. Dresses were short at the front and longer at the back, while tops were all sleeveless.
Bowie, whose background is Asian but who worked for a French Maison de Couture, perfectly mixed those two fashion cultures, leading to a collections where gorgeous black gowns were revisited with floral printed fabrics or Japanese inspirational belts.
That was definitely my favorite, especially since Edith Piaf was the music Bowie used for this show, a clear reference to French culture and couture, star of this defilé.
