After the evocative presentation of the Spring / Summer 22 collection at the Galliera Museum in Paris, Olivier Theyskens chooses the wonderful setting of the foyer of the Palais de Chaillot to present the Autumn / Winter 22-23 collection, made with fabrics from his vintage collection.
The clothing rediscovers the same graphic and construction techniques of its old collections, reinforcing a theme of rediscovery, reuse and layered structure. The fabrics are rich, resonant and sometimes sheer, with a depth and weave that radiates overlapping textures.
Theyskens chose our Aloof collection to give continuity to the aesthetics of the presentation proposed in Paris for his previous spring-summer collection. There, along the colonnade of Palazzo Galliera, the mannequins were arranged as if on a catwalk against the natural stone facade.
Here, Theyskens has placed his autumn-winter collection on a darker background, creating a more intense contrast. Mannequins are set out in a soldier like arrangement, perfectly aligned, giving the installation that elegance and continuity that distinguishes Theyskens’ presentations.
The simple and austere attitude of the Aloof mannequins gives the whole presentation a coherent and serene atmosphere, showing the structure of the clothes at their best. The head decorations in a light fabric add a feeling of movement to the figures.
