LOUIS GABRIEL NOUCHI Spring/Summer 2019

#ParisFashionWeek! The Louis Gabriel Nouchi S/S19 collection is inspired by Yukio Mishima’s book «The Temple of The Golden Pavilion».The story of a monk, so obsessed by the beauty of this temple that he burned it down; a true story from the 2nd world war. This book makes the reader reflect on the notion of beauty in a world in crisis.

The loose cuts reminiscent of the kimonos, enveloping the body to reveal the sensuality of the space between the skin and the fabric becomes a zone of mysterious, sublimated by the movement. Gold silks, precious and delicate, are counterbalanced by aggressive treatments on denim or Jersey materials, such as Bleaching or overdyed fabric.  A selection of activewear, made in collaboration with Damart combines sensitivity and functionality. Offering a contemporary wardrobe, highlighting the relationship between the body and sportswear. The print motives of large flowers, placed randomly, exacerbate a dramatic beauty, like a shroud, which make us face the daily violence of the world around us.
