Whimsical. Turbulent. Futuristic. Dramatic. Edgy. These are just a few of the words we have called to mind to describe the gorgeous new Spring/Summer 2019 collection from Armine Ohanyan. The designer presented a runway of luxurious styles during this January season of Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week, and we were captivated by the daring silhouettes and sweeping motion found in the garments’ draping.
“The play between shapes, lights and movement comes together to create a skillful harmony,” the brand shared about this new collection in a press release. “We are transported to an unreal world where the beauty of nature is preserved. This is a new collection that represents all the richness of the sea floor, its intense colors and all its unique and surprising beauty.”
“However, nature is under threat by mankind so the designer draws attention to the causes of its destruction, such as climate change and other pollution on the species, wildlife and the biotope,” the statement continued. “Thus, when using plastic waste as embroideries and illustrating the alteration of the colors of the aquatic flora, the Designer denounces the stakes of ecology. The use of new technology as 3D printing, using materials less common in textiles such as silicone and techniques like laser cutting reinforces her creations a modern image, even futuristic, revealing her as the incarnation of the new generation in Haute-Couture.”
We love how this range combines natural elements with high-tech innovations and eco-conscious practices. The effect is positively stunning.
