The embroidered masks seen during Julien David‘s shows aimed to neutralise the models and their characters, so the whole spotlight would be stolen by the clothes. In fact, that worked! David presented fabrications, such as the crinkled natural wool suiting that opened the show; the material reminded cracked asphalt in gray and rice paper in white. A paraffin-coated lyocell rayon became his dedicated parka material, which looked even more genuine. The white, corduroy suite looks simultaneously elegant and effortlessly modern. David’s amazing usage of textiles is always mind-blowing. While the styling and the clothes themselves make me drool, the wide-leg cropped pants are my definitive favourites!
