Olympia Le-Tan expands her ready-to-wear, by looking forward to meticulous embroideries and reinterpreting her obsessions into clothes. This season, her collection oozed with sexuality coming straight from Japan – it was intensively inspired with Nobuyoshi Araki, the famous photographer who captures his models tied up with ropes and striking sophisticated poses. The black, satin dresses had those hand-embroidered harness details that looked provoking with red tights and platform heels. Also, the “polaroid” tapestries on mini-skirts pictured geishas and their bodies in an Araki-esque way. But what really made Olympia take Japan as her primary idea behind the collection? The visit to Japan, basically, and her love to Hotel Okura, which was recently demolished in order to build a new, modern skyscraper. A sentimental nod to this beloved place was reflected in “Hotel Olympia” tops and the geometrically patterned floor-covering of the fashion show venue, which reminded everybody of the 60’s-70’s atmosphere.
