Disco glam ran supreme for Humberto Leon & Carol Lim’s latest effort that made its way down the Paris catwalk in the Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine. The show was backdropped by living sculptures painted by Debbie Finnegan to give a surreal stone-like effect, fitting amidst the museum. Everything it would seem was a gesture of extravagance–whether it was the staging, the clothes themselves or the rouge drama on the cheeks of beauties like Edie Campbell, Grace Elizabeth, Adwoa Aboah and more courtesy of makeup artist Lynsey Alexander. The shape this season was the feminine exaggerated: Liberal tailoring, accentuating the waistline with elastic and pillowing shoulders and sleeves. A structured military motif turned to the more resplendent–gleaming metallics and graphics of red-lipped women, adorned with huge gemstone earrings. All making the models into the marvelous new wave.
