The Adeline Ziliox Spring/Summer 2019 “Under the Shell” collection, the designer’s second-ever couture line, made its debut this January season of Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week in France.
This collection, which was actually 100% made in France, celebrates “the body as a showcase for our feelings, for our emotions, our soul, and the cloth, showcase itself for this body telling so many stories, lives, hopes, dreams,” according to a press release from the brand.
“These clothes, like a carapace or an armor, hide the real ego but reveal its deepness,” Adeline Ziliox explained. “A warrior woman. This recurrent theme is an everlasting inspiration for the designer. These women who daily fight for their freedom, for their rights, their lives. These women are from the present and the past. Powerful women who shine with their grace, their femininity and fragility.”
The Adeline Ziliox brand is known for its transparent elements. Here, 3D-effect collars and bold structured shoulders are crafted with contemporary, see-through PVC materials. If the season is all about contrasting warrior-like shapes with delicate detailing, that effect is certainly achieved.
“The shapes are structured, volume, oversize shoulders, like they carry the entire world,” the brand explained. “The graphics design accentuate their own femininity, some technical matter like neoprene who met sometime chiffon or sometime satin. Always the designer is passionate by motifs she has long worked printed form. This collection is the opportunity to create some motifs through embroidery.”
