“This has got to be distortion at its most elegant form”, that was my first thought when I watched Stéphane Rolland’s SS2014 Haute Couture runway show. Rolland’s collections has been consistently whimsical, feminine and just simply beautiful.
At the mere age of 20, Rolland joined Balenciaga and was promoted to the position of Creative Director of menswear within a year. He subsequently left to start his own prêt-à-porter company and eventually took on the role of artistic manager for Couturier Jean-Louis Scherrer, thereby embarking on his journey into haute couture. His experience as a costume designer probably also injected that element of glitz and glamour into his designs. Rolland presented his first eponymous haute couture collection in 2007 and has been churning out stunning pieces one after another since.
There is no better way to spend the day than looking at beautiful things and looking through Stéphane Rolland’s haute collections just makes my day.
