Stephane Rolland Haute Couture Fall Winter 2021-2022. Review by RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
This collection is the story of 3 colors: deep red, deep yellow and deep white. This is a story related to the profound beauty of the nature, and a strong spirit, a wild queen. Pure strength of the spirit resides in this royal collection of Stephane Rolland for Fall Winter 2021-2022.
The collection asks for a poetry about a powerful queen, who bursts her power into strength of eternal beauty. Even the sun going down to sleep at her feet…. Very powerful and romantic collection of the gowns is another story of a Queen who doesn’t need her donkey skin to be revealed into her strength and beauty (reference to the gowns from the French movie “Peau d’âne”).
From water and stone the encounter with the French artist Beatrice Serre made the precious embroidered mineral mosaics bloom. The silhouette is souple, wide, generous. The trapeze line of the tunic dresses and long gilets with train cross the opulent roundness of the sculptural crinolines.
A long white sweater in grainy crepe paved with Carrare marble drags wide froth streaks. Limestone pebbles become monumental jewellery sets, worn on long white vegetal leather gloves. A black pleated organza tide flies off a corset covered in rock crystal and white howlite on a gigantic dark night silk skirt.
Filmed in the Pays Basque’s dawn light, Nieves Alvarez, absolute muse, evolves on the wide sand stretches and sea walls in Hendaye, Biarritz and Bidart, natural stages.
Dawn arrives, the first streaks of light glide on the sea. True solar bubble, the light glistens on an imperial smock jacket in yellow satin duchess embroidered with mother of pearl cabochons.
A mosaic made of amber, marble and citrines flows on a long and wide tunic in golden lamé brocard. An other mosaic splashes with jade and malachite a long metal knit gilet.
A gigantic poncho, as a white satin wave, is worn on yellow jersey trousers, punctuated with gold hoops. The sky ignites as the day sets and like an open air opera, a red satin hooded crinoline, embroidered with red and white coral, blends in the last rays of sun.
