ZIAD NAKAD Spring Summer 2018 Couture

"I am Demeter, revered by all, the power most useful for gods and men."

For his Spring Summer 2018 collection, Ziad Nakad decided to celebrate the "Goddess of Wheat" and "Mother of the Earth." Goddess who gathers the fruits of the earth and offers them to humanity; its cult is particularly flourishing in the countries where this wheat is found in abundance, in Sicily, in the region of Eleusis, in Crete, in Thrace and in the Peloponnese.

Like a bird flying over the harvests, perfectly free, crossing a colorful sky, resplendent and singularly geometric - the pale blue of the firmament mixes with the yellow and gold of the wheat, the green of the earth, the coral of the ocean and the  bronze trees at sunset. Wheat ears dot the dresses, a tribute to the most iconic representation of the goddess Demeter. Dress after dress, Ziad Nakad plays a subtle game that celebrates life in a precise mastered know-how and silk embroidered sublimated tulles.

Ziad Nakad created this collection for the strong woman, assumed, voluntary but also and especially generous. Inspired by one of the most favorable deities to humans, as a symbol of accomplishment and peace.

EWA MINGE Couture Fall-Winter 2017-2018

Inspired by the ancient gypsy fables, Ewa Minge for her Couture collection fall-winter 2017/18 transports us into an enchanted, joyful and dancing world. Multi-colored and multi-layered silhouettes, numerous details and accessories evoke the rich and singing world of this culture. Embroideries and butterflies appear on many garments and were created by the "students" of the Black Butterflies Foundation as part of their art-therapy.

Indeed, under the eye of the designer for several months, women who fight against cancer have made "small works of art" from pearls. And as they say, these butterflies helped us to pass this difficult time during treatment and transported us to another wonderful world where everything is possible.

Art helps to keep the disease away; These women will be present in Paris to attend the parade and see their butterflies fly into the great capital. Ewa Minge wants as well to present a plus-size model because she creates for all women and believes that beauty does not have sizes.

Clad in Ready-to-wear, Lingerie, and Beachwear from the La Perla Pre-Fall 2017 Collection, Jenner exudes the certainty and self-assurance of a true heroine – owning her world through confidence and empowered femininity.

Captured through the inventive lens of Mert & Marcus, the vibrant colors and molded shapes of the La Perla collection take center-stage. The explosive visual message is intended to shock and transport the viewer to a world of fantasy, color, and art.

The campaign features the new La Perla Slip Dress which boasts a built-in padded bra and sculpted bodice sewn from the world’s finest stretch silk with Leavers lace detailing.

MARIA ARISTIDOU SS17 Couture

When all roads lead to lab·y·rinth 'lab(ə)ˌrinTH : a complicated irregular network of passages or paths in which it is difficult to find one's way; a maze

Maria Aristidou, for Spring/Summer 2017 collection, was inspired by Greek mythology and specifically from Labyrinthos - An elaborate structure designed and built by the legendary artificer Daedalus and his son Icarus for King Minos of Crete at Knossos.

Its function was to hold the Minotaur inside the Labyrinth and eventually killed by the Athenian hero Theseus. The maze, the path, or the collections of paths from an entrance to the goal was the key to the creation of this Spring/Summer collection.

The fashion designer in her Spring/Summer collection with her lab·y·rinth patterns, metallic yarns and elaborate embroideries created a luxurious playground in her designs for women. Sleek cuts, unexpected open backs and pleating details are the key signatures of this elegant womenswear collection for day or night.

Timeless classic, modern and indeed unique is Maria Aristidou S/S 2017 Labyrinth Semi Couture Collection!
