In the new video that accompanies the Women’s Fall-Winter 2018 collection, key looks and accessories come through with a sense of individuality and reinforce the strength of inspired design. Nicolas Ghesquière developed the ready-to-wear with an eye oriented towards contemporary savoir-faire, such that a bustier embroidered by hand using a crochet technique gives off metallic lustre, while a tweed jacket hand-stitched with chain embroidery elevates a traditional pattern with extra shine. Colour-blocked dresses and tops boast inlays of silk and jersey that reinforce the collection’s contrasting attitudes of elegance and sport style. The Headline shoes combine craftsmanship and artistic flourish: hand-painted ostrich leather, a heel enveloped in python, and a metal-and-leather accessory placed by hand comprise this striking design. These are just a few glimpses into the array of detailing that makes up the collection. Each new statement on each girl is the sum of myriad well-considered parts.
