Guy Laroche Spring/Summer 2017 Collection Focuses on Proportion

Rebellious and sober at the same time, the newest Guy Laroche spring/summer 2017 collection took Paris Fashion Week by surprise with its highly utilitarian patterns and ultra-chic refinement. For his spring 2017 collection, creative director Adam Andrascik mainly focused on an upgraded version of the Nineties, skillfully experimenting with fabrics and textures.

With utilitarianism being one of this fashion week’s most revisited motifs, and with Guy Laroche historically being one of the most ‘affordable’ haute couture houses of the fashion industry, London-based designer Adam Andrascik managed to translate the trend to its best, with even workwear touches helping the line-up get its flawlessly utilitarian look.

As usual, even when experimenting with new styles and even fabrics, Adam Andrascik managed to emphasize the contours of the bodies and silhouettes throughout this 25-piece collection, mainly focusing on the waistlines and the legs. In doing so, however, he followed a specific path.

While most of his colleagues chose to highlight the waists through cloth belts, Adam Andrascik opted for stretch, curve-hugging figures and tactic shaping, visible hems and contours. Only a few staples featured belts, and it was usually the trench coats.

As a whole, the Guy Laroche spring/summer 2017 collection was a pure pleasure to watch. Divided in three different sections, the line-up was, in fact, displayed in coherent blocks of colors and patterns, a choice many designers are actually using during this Paris Fashion Week too.

In the lineup’s first section, Andrascik treated us to his most utilitarian looks, with trench coats, fitted skirts and workwear-turned-couture dresses dominating the scene. Here he also experimented with see-through plastic materials, which surely added a sort of unconventional sensuality to the entire collection.

A bright yellow hue linked the first part’s staples with one another, confirming once again that the spring/summer 2017 season will be particularly bright in terms of colors.

The Guy Laroche spring 2017 ready-to-wear collection’s second part was, instead, more futuristic, with quirky metallic looks perfectly mixing street-style with high and low fashion. Super-short miniskirts, see-through blouses and Nineties-inspired rounded-neck t-shirts will likely become one of this spring’s most featured staples on the main social media, as they were basically meant to get viral easily.

The collection’s third part appeared to be the most polished, with evening dresses looking neither too elegant, nor to urban. To better create an eased-up look, in fact, Andrascik chose to dynamically interrupt the rigor of the silhouettes with either metallic patterns, or high and low combinations of tank tops and skirts in total black, which in return means that one single outfit is suitable for almost every occasion, both formal and informal, as it always happens when it comes to Gay Laroche.
