Sculptural Mastery
Who's Ready For Cocktails? Stephane Rolland Haute Couture Spring 2012
Inspired by French artist and sculptor Michel Deverne, Stephane Rolland's Spring 2012 Haute Couture Collection was an homage to the sculptured form. Folds, pleats and volants were the accents in each look which made the entire collection such a standout achievement in clean, sober, yet directional Haute Couture.

In order to show movement and the sculptural aspect of each garment, fabrics were simple, clean and rich: silk organza, gazar, crepe, chiffon and georgette. There was also a simple color palette of red, ivory, black, and lime green (definitely becoming THE COLOR of the season, also seen at Atelier Versace and Armani Prive).

Lots of Gold...seen in belts, neckline, waist and torso pieces. It gave a modern Spartan Goddess look to some of the structural column gowns as well as the light-as-air chiffon pieces. Cut-out's also played a starring role in the collection.

And in terms of accessories--well there's the ubiquitous fingerless driving gloves that we have seen in many an Haute Couture collections this season. The shoes: sky-high stacked pumps in matching colors with gold accents/details--Oh and the heel: 6-7"!
