Polished silhouettes in warm bronze and maroon pranced down the runway at Loris Diran, interspersed with enticing black, elegant gray and white creations. Exposed backs seduced guests in silk and velvet, while silver-doused gray ruffles complimented fitted frocks and tailored suits. The show climaxed with Diran’s translucent lace dress that gleamed beneath the lights, letting a taut gold one piece peek through.
The warm color palette resonated at Elise Øverland’s show, cordially applauded by the likes of Heidi Klum, Kelly Osbourne and Peaches Geldof who sat front row. Again, high collar exaggerations and exposed skin was a recurrent motif in her designs, exposing backs, shoulders and bare mid-drifts. Taking fur to the next level, loud leather coats were adorned with hair length fringe while tan fabric bands placed emphasis on the neck. Øverland proves the style myth wrong, showing once and for all that black can be worn with brown, pairing high-waisted tan leather skirts and harem pants with oversized black silk. It’s no surprise her show attracted members of the fashion elite.
