Laure de Sagazan was a breath of fresh air, when showcasing at The Standard, Highline for Spring 2018. Creams, Off-White & Pure White were all present this season. With clusters of lit candles along the runway, a calm, relaxed mood filled the room & the audience witnessed a Parisian storyline of a bride that was laid back yet confident.
Sagazan transported the viewers into a world filled with loose yet flattering gowns with a strong 1920’s influence. This collection showed how a light & airy satin dress can be paired with a lace cropped blouse, portrayed a bride who only has her closest friends & family around her. While a porcelain white jumpsuit, with delicate lace overlaying the torso, presented a bride that was not only exuded confidence on her special day but also wanted comfort when celebrating. Sagazan brought comfort to the runway, displaying an angelic woman with innocence and mystery, with every simplic layer of lace or embroidery. Such tricks of silhouette & fabrication are usually only found on the runways during sportswear weeks, but Sagazan showed her mastery of her genre brilliantly by introducing such twists into the normal staid world of bridal.
In a way, Sagazan implyed that even on a woman’s special day, the dress should fit the woman & not the other way around. And rightly so, that is what bridal gown should illustrate. How modern!
