Paris, France — Black and gold and white. Shimmering bejeweled head dresses. The elegant world of Stéphene Rolland once again lit up the Haute Couture week in Paris which drew to a close last January 28th. His core values of contrast, value and movement ran throughout the show which took place virtually for the spectators but in reality just for the show inside the lofty, alcove-filled La Villette Theater on the eastern edge of Paris.
The artist draws his inspiration from modern art and architecture. His Haute Couture Spring – Summer 2021 Collection was entitled from Velazquez to Manolo Valdés, respectively, the major 17th century Spanish painter and the contemporary Spanish sculptor. The show featured corsets, pajama pants, jumpsuits and crinolines, Art Deco bracelets in crystal, metallic golden silk embroidered in sequins, crystals, malachite and pearls. Satin, crepe, crisp and smooth gazar and organza were among the fabrics of choice.
Head pieces were a remarkable part of the show and in the words of Mr. Rolland,
« Heads are crowned.
Manes of gold leaves frame the face.
Headpieces of black rattan cane and crystal nets imprison the tidy buns of the infants. »
A full member of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, he has been presenting his highly acclaimed couture collections since 2007 and his clothing has been worn by a number of personalities including Celine Dion, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga.
