Aganovich Spring / Summer 2013

Aganovich used the clean white space of the Palais de Tokyo to present a spring / summer 2013 collection that somehow felt both sci-fi futuristic and folkishly traditional. The soundtrack backed the latter, as did techniques like crochet and fringing while asymmetrical cuts on several dresses covered one arm, cape-like, calling to mind the silhouette of a Mexican Serape (whether that was the designer’s conscious intention, I know not).

It was the futurist element that struck most obviously though. With their clean, structured shapes, and brooches like emblematic patches on the breast, Aganovich’s models could have been piloting the Starship Enterprise. Only these were uniforms you’d actually want to wear, so visually striking did they appear on the Paris fashion week runway.
