When Paris fashion week (PFW) isn’t being luxuriously steeped in glamour, it can usually be found taking a trip to the dark side. Nicolas Andreas Taralis was one of the ferryman collecting the coin and steering the boat across on day two: the Garage Turenne filled from concrete floor to pitched ceiling with haunting choral music or equally haunting ambiant noise.
The colour palette was black, white, and grey, with chunky wedged boots and clumpy strands of hair signalling that this collection was would-be fodder for the edgy crowd. Tailoring was asymmetrical and organic. Raw edges gave pieces a worn-in feel. Finally, two sheer, breezy gowns – one black, one white – added the lightness the show needed and ended it on a strong, beautiful, note.
