Grand Couturier Christophe Josse describes his Haute Couture collection as being glamorous yet not overstated. Timeless Grace and elegance comes to mind when one sets eyes on Christophe Josse’s collection that personifies the distillation of the contemporary French spirit. His endeavour is to develop a brand of fashion that encompasses a spectrum of emotions, flights of fancy and unadulterated magic.
Christophe Josse’s runway collection drew inspiration from medieval armour plating. The armour influence was noticeably referenced on many pieces of his designs. Models on the runway were armed with the beauty of his dress collection.
Dresses sparkled with a polished metallic sheen due to the treatment of exotic leathers, dip dyed feathers and tweed. In a few instances, the upper part of the dresses were armoured while the bottom featured flowing light lace. Fluidity is observed on many runway pieces, as models strutted with effortless grace in long flowing gowns that made their legs look seemingly endless.
Here are the runway images of Christophe Josse’s collection at Women’s Fashion Week 2011:
